Vitamins (Vitamin D)

25-Hydroxyvitamin D levels in serum at the onset of multiple sclerosis. (Mult Scler. 2005) "Past sun exposure and vitamin D supplementation have been associated with a reduction in the risk of MS. We conclude that the vitamin D stores in most MS patients are adequate for their normal bone metabolism. However, lower vitamin D levels during MS relapses than in remission suggest that vitamin D could be involved in the regulation of the clinical disease activity of MS."

Why we should offer routine vitamin D supplementation in pregnancy and childhood to prevent multiple sclerosis. (Med Hypotheses. 2005) " In areas of high MS prevalence, dietary supplementation of vitamin D in early life may reduce the incidence of MS. In addition, like folic acid, vitamin D supplementation should also be routinely recommended in pregnancy. Prevention of MS by modifying an important environmental factor (sunlight exposure and vitamin D level) offers a practical and cost-effective way to reduce the burden of the disease in the future generations."
