When it comes to B12 and MS, can taking B12 help
to reverse MS nerve damage?
I am so
excited to tell you about what I am finding with taking a higher dose
of vitamin B12, how it is helping with reducing and maybe even
reversing MS nerve damage and increasing how well my nerves are
functioning with Multiple Sclerosis.
I have had several problems with my nerves not functioning as they
of the effects of more severe Multiple Sclerosis attacks on my body,
taking the higher dosage of vitamin B12 has been helping to reduce.
Taking extra vitamin B12 has
helped me in the following ways:
* Numbness greatly reduced in my legs, hands and
* Feeling returning much more in my feet,
legs and hands
* Standing up better
Nerve function in legs is returning again, so that my knees don't
much when I try to stand up and let go.
Not able to stand for a few years but starting to be able to stand up
* Weakness on one side of the body greatly
* Hands working better
Able to pick up and hold things much better without dropping everything
Able to control my hands better for activities that require having
dexterity or fine finger movement.
Much less hand spasms
* Vision fogginess or haziness cleared up
Vision much crisper and clearer
Much less floating fuzz in vision
* Balance improving when standing
* Dizziness or lightheadedness greatly reduced when trying to
* Reduced MS fatigue
Taking B12 has been increasing my energy levels during the day and
making it so
that I sleep better at night
All of these good effects on my nerves are things I have noticed after
the higher dose of vitamin B12 for only 2 weeks!
When it comes to B12 and MS, reversing MS nerve damage appears to be a
possibility, but time will tell and it is definitely worth trying.
I didn't take the extra B12 on
my own, but rather I have been working
doctor every step along the way.
It is not recommended that you try taking even vitamin supplements,
supervision of at least one or more of your doctors, since prescription
medications can interact with some vitamin supplements.

Also, not all forms of B12 are absorbable.
Methyl B12 is a better absorbed form of B12.
In addition, taking tablets and capsule forms of B12 and swallowing
them is not
very effective, since these forms of B12 are not easily absorbable
Sublingual forms of B12 work much better, since the B12 is dissolved
tongue, so that it absorbs directly into the blood stream, but often
the sublingual forms contains fructose or other sugars, which can
aggravate certain symptoms of MS or other health conditions like
avoid taking supplements containing sugar, since these can aggravate
Candida albicans (a yeast overgrowth), diabetes or contribute to weakening the immune system more or
contribute to more infections or to MS fatigue.
In addition, to take vitamin B12 you also need to take B
too, since the B vitamins, such as B1, B2, B5, B6 or B12
not be taken separately, since doing so can cause much worse
any of the other B vitamins too.
Also, if you have been found to have higher levels of the toxic metal
in your body, then it can be much more difficult to find a form of B12
can tolerate, since higher levels of mercury can interact with many
The form of B12, that I have found that I can tolerate taking, that is
more easily absorbed, is NOW
brand Instant Energy B12, which contains 2,000 mcg or 2 mg
of B12, along with the other B vitamins and 200 mg of chromium
have also found that taking chromium polynicotinate, twice a day, along
with the vitamin B12, also helps stabilize the blood sugar to help
reduce MS fatigue along with B12.
I take 1 packet of
the B12 twice during the day, along with B complex each time that I
take it, I get much better results.
I have found that if I take a third packet before I go to bed that I
have an easier time going to sleep and I sleep much better at night.
main doctor is supervising everything that I take and all that I do
each day, using natural thyroid hormone, natural supplements, diet,
exercise to reduce the effects of Multiple Sclerosis on my body.
B12 supplements can be used instead, but the result may vary and it
does depend on how well you can tolerate each brand and how well you
can absorb the form of B12 in the supplement.
When it comes to B12 and MS,
an added way of boosting B12 levels can also include taking NOW brand
methyl cobalamine or Methyl B12, the sublingual form, also helps to
boost vitamin B12 levels fast to help speed up the good affects on the
nerves for helping the nerves to function better and with helping to
reverse the MS nerve damage.
body will absorb what it can each time that you take the extra B12, and
then get rid of what you can't absorb fast enough into the urine.
Don't be alarmed if your urine turns yellow for a short period of time for an hour or two after you take the extra B12.
your body doesn't retain the extra vitamin B12 well, since it is water
soluable, the B12 only stays in your system for up to 12 hours and must
be taken at least twice a day to help keep vitamin B12 levels more
elevated to help speed up the process of helping the nerves to start to
function better again.
body doesn't have a problem with becoming too toxic from taking extra
vitamin B12, since your body doesn't accumulate excess vitamin B12,
like it does with iron, vitamin A and some other vitamins, which can
also be taken as a supplement as needed (as determined by your doctor).
can test for Vitamin B12 in people with MS by doing a blood test, but
the blood test doesn't tell the whole story as to what is going on in
the body of people, diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
have been cases where a blood test was performed on people with MS, and
the blood test came up with the results being in the normal range, but
when a sample of spinal fluid from the base of the spine was drawn and
analyzed for vitamin B12 levels, the MS patients were found to be
deficient in vitamin B12.
way I look at it is, that if you have nerve damage, as a result of
Multiple Sclerosis attacks on your nerves, then your body needs the
much higher dosages of B12 to help your body to repair the nerve damage.
When it comes to B12 and MS for helping to
reverse MS nerve damage,
is better to take the methyl form of B12, instead of the cobalamine or
cyanocobalamine forms, but a combination of the methyl form and other
forms can work well too, depending on how well your body can absorb
