Vitamin-B3 May Help MS
Mouse Study: Vitamin-B3 Protects Brain Cells -- Even in Late-Stage Multiple Sclerosis
Sept. 19, 2006 -- The newest treatment for multiple sclerosis might be Vitamin-B3, mouse studies suggest.
Nicotinamide is a form of Vitamin-B3 closely related to niacin. In a mouse model of MS, nicotinamide protects brain cells from degeneration.
Given in the early stages of disease, it offered "dramatic protection." Given in late disease, it protected against further brain damage and new disease symptoms, report Shinjiro Kaneko, MD, and colleagues at Children's Hospital, Boston.
Both effects would be welcomed by people with MS. Current MS treatments work only in the early "relapsing-remitting" phase of the disease. Nothing currently slows the devastating later "chronic progressive" stage of MS.
"The earlier therapy was started, the better the effect, but we hope nicotinamide can help patients who are already in the chronic stage," Kaneko said, in a news release. "We hope that our work will initiate a clinical trial, and that nicotinamide could be used in real patients."
Kaneko and colleagues report their findings in the Sept. 20 issue of the Journal of Neuroscience. Nerve Fiber Protection
During multiple sclerosis, nerve fibers -- axons -- are damaged by self-destructive immune responses. It's possible, Kaneko and colleagues suggest, that protecting them from further damage could slow disease -- or even lead to some recovery.
The researchers noticed that in the mouse model of MS, the axons of mice with hyperactive Wld genes aren't damaged as easily. The Wld gene, it turns out, makes an enzyme necessary for the production of another protein called NAD. Kaneko and colleagues found that as mice progress to MS disease, nerve levels of NAD decline.
Kaneko and colleagues tried treating MS mice with nicotinamide. NAD can be formed from nicotinamide. They found that this prevented the decline of NAD -- and protected axons from disease.
"We demonstrate that administering nicotinamide can … result in profound neuroprotection in [the mouse model of MS], providing a novel therapeutic possibility for MS patients," Kaneko and colleagues conclude.
Of course, clinical trials will be needed to find out if Vitamin-B3 really can be a safe and effective treatment for multiple sclerosis.
MY NOTE: Max Stress B Nano-Plex™ was one of the things I took and I have already been the "guinea pig" for the B vitamins and YES! It will help aid the body in reversing MS! (click here for REAL B Vitamins, REAL Vitamin-C & REAL EFA Oils)
My Research Library is experiencing difficulties so keep checking back for the full report on Max Stress B. This is the info on the B's from QNLabs:
QNL Quantum Rx Max Stress B Nano-Plex The World's First Completely All Natural Living Source B Vitamin Complex
Max Stress B Nano-Plex™ (Patent Pending)
Now for the first time, completely natural-source B vitamins are available in QN Lab's Max Stress B Nano-Plex™ derived from proprietary technology using special, healthy probiotic strains. This means a Quantum Leap in everything that B vitamins do for the body - maximum stress protection, anti-aging, instantaneous energy boost, brain rejuvenation, heart health and mood balance.
Because of its liquid oral delivery system, this is one product that literally everyone who tried it felt an immediate difference - an instant feeling of well being and better mental clarity. No amount of synthetic B vitamins can deliver the super energy boost you will experience with just 1/2 teaspoon of Max Stress B Nano-Plex™. This product nourishes the cell's DNA, delivering a biophotonic "body of light" only found in "once living source" nutrients. Synthetic B vitamins - and all synthetics for that matter - actually accelerate aging and degradation of the cell's DNA.
The B vitamins work together as a team, which is why it is generally recommended to take a supplement with the whole Vitamin-B complex family, rather than individual, isolated B vitamins. The whole B family is needed to help keep the body in balance and harmony for greater physical, emotional and mental health.
Research shows that the nutrient content of our food has been drastically decreased due to poor soil, harvesting while still green and extensive use of chemicals and pesticides. In 1998, the Food and Nutrition Board of the National Academy of Sciences called for Dietary Reference Intakes of B vitamins. However, today, over 97% of all Vitamin-B products on the market are synthetically made in a laboratory, typically from coal tar derivatives. Ouch! Max Stress B Nano-Plex™ is made using special strains of probiotic bacteria to produce natural B vitamins in their most potent, end-chain co-enzyme forms. The proven benefits associated with the B complex are actually created by the entire, intricate, complex symphony of phytonutrients and supportive co-factors naturally found in whole nutrient sources, not in isolated, synthesized molecules. In short, test tube Vitamin-B simply cannot recreate the magnificent synergy of a whole nutrient Vitamin-B complex.

We are a "Nutritional treatment for ms stop"! We do not do anything conventionally here.
Conventional "medicine" is for quitters, in my opinion. If you don't care about YOUR health, then I recommend you close this browser and call your doctor.
would assume that you searched for a nutritional, healthy way to treat your diagnosis and that is why you are here. So, that opening message won't apply to many people, but it had to be said, regardless. We have dealt with enough people that have asked for help and then wanted to mix their medications with the nutritional products and then asked us what advice we can offer. We can tell you this. NONE of what MS Reversed represents and nothing that we offer for purchase here will counteract with your Rx of choice. Although our nutraceauticals are Rx strength, none of it will counteract with what your medical doctor prescribes to you. But at that point, you would need to discuss this with your doctor. MS Reversed will offer no recommendations on mixing or not mixing our Rx's with your doctor's prescribed Rx's.
