How to Help Heal MS . . .

So today, we'll finish this topic of "Multiple Sclerosis" with how to help heal through food.

Now . . . "vitamin C" is very important in the participation of "myelin formation" . . . and even "collagen synthesis" which is dependent on vitamin C has been linked to the formation of "myelin sheath".

So eating foods like peppers (deseeded and ribs removed), citrus fruits (peeled and deseeded), green leafy vegetables, broccoli, tomatoes (deseeded and skinned) and berries will help to repair "myelin sheath".

"Vitamin B1, B6 and B12" are also key players in repair . . . they have the ability to protect nerves against damaging environmental influences.

"Vitamin D" reduces "inflammation", prevents the "inflammatory" damage of MS . . . and plays a role in regulating the maturation of cells that produce "myelin" called "oligodendrocyte.

And a great food source for that would be . . . wild-caught salmon, swordfish, tuna or beef liver.

Now . . . "Zinc" also affects "myelination". This mineral is needed for "myelin" proteins to work properly for "recovery". And the best food sources would be . . . oysters, grass-fed beef, pumpkin seeds, mushrooms and spinach.

And remember we spoke of the importance of "biotin" yesterday . . .

Okay . . . so what foods do we need to add to our meal plan???

Well . . . as we now know . . . "myelin sheath" is mostly made of "fat" . . .

BUT . . . not all "fats" . . . just healthy "unsaturated" fats like from compliant nuts, seeds, salmon, tune and avocado . . . and their job is to help nerve cells communicate more quickly.

And what foods should be avoided???
