  • Perceived effectiveness for Multiple Sclerosis: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for General health: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 1300 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This oil is shown to reduce inflammation (especially in Woman). Ifigure since it's harmless and helps with inflammation, it may be beneficial to MS. i have taken it for 3 years and in that time have avoided an MS exacerbation. I rate it highly because of it's assumed benefit. My lesions, when they happen, do not inflame past 3mm ever. For general health I believe this oil helps inflammation all over. Since I starter taking it, I have had no discomfort from prolonged repetitive motion, or any other inflammatory issues besides the few new lesions, which seem to becoming less frequent and smaller. All of my other lesions seem to have reduced in sive by several milimeters over time as well.
Cost: < $25 monthly
