MS Patients May Benefit Significantly From Very High Doses Of Vitamin D

December 30, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
High doses of vitamin D3 may prove to be an inexpensive, safe and convenient treatment for people with multiple sclerosis, according to a small U.S. clinical study. The vitamin was shown to help regulate a hyperactive immune response among the 20 participants who took a daily dose of 10,400 IU, significantly higher than the recommended daily dose of 600 IU. The high dose reduced the percentage of inflammatory T cells related to MS severity. The control group who took the 800 IU daily dose experienced no noticeable changes in levels of T cells. Side effects from the high dose were minimal.
