B12 and MS: What Form of B12

Can Help Reduce or Reverse

MS Nerve Damage?

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 should because of the effects of more severe Multiple Sclerosis attacks on my body, which 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 feet

* 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 collapse as 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 and let go again

Weakness on one side of the body greatly reduced

* Hands working better

Able to pick up and hold things much better without dropping everything on the floor

Able to control my hands better for activities that require having better 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 stand up

* 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 taking 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 with my doctor every step along the way.

It is not recommended that you try taking even vitamin supplements, without the supervision of at least one or more of your doctors, since prescription medications can interact with some vitamin supplements.

Also, depending on what other conditions you have along with the Multiple Sclerosis, it may be that some vitamin supplements are not recommended for you to take by your doctor.

The reason this information is being provided to you is to give you an option of something that you can discuss with your doctor, which may be something that can help you too, to find relief to some or even many of the problems that you are facing, when it comes to how Multiple Sclerosis attacks has reduced how well your nerves can function.

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 either.

Sublingual forms of B12 work much better, since the B12 is dissolved under the 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 diabetes.

We 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 complex too, since the B vitamins, such as B1, B2, B5, B6 or B12 should not be taken separately, since doing so can cause much worse deficiencies in any of the other B vitamins too.

Also, if you have been found to have higher levels of the toxic metal mercury in your body, then it can be much more difficult to find a form of B12 that you can tolerate, since higher levels of mercury can interact with many forms of B!2.

The form of B12, that I have found that I can tolerate taking, that is also 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 piccolinate.

I 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.

Also, 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.

My 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.

Other 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.

Your 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.

Since 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.

Your 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).

Doctors 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.

There 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.

The 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, it 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 them.

We do not sell vitamins, but we have found that for us certain ones are better tolerated by us and help much more for us to gain the benefits and are helping to reduce the effects of Multiple Sclerosis, which were much more severe previously.

This information is provided to help make you aware that vitamin B12 deficiency can contribute to MS neuropathy and finding forms that you can may help you to regain more of the ability of your nerves to function better again, but we do caution you not to take anything without the supervision of your licensed medical professional or doctor.

Caution should be taken, since some medications can interact with certain vitamin supplements.

In addition, depending on what other conditions are present along with the Multiple Sclerosis, some conditions become worse when certain vitamin supplements are taken.

Check with your doctor before considering taking anything for your particular case of Multiple Sclerosis.
