  • Perceived effectiveness for Multiple Sclerosis: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 1 g Daily
Advice & Tips: Besides the times of my exacerbations I have been getting a "theraputc" dose before I go on extended vacations. In 2010 I traveled to London and Ireland and this June I went to Rome, Venice and back to Ireland where I end up doing a lot of walking. The positive side effect of the emergy boost and reduction in inflamation helps with long days.
Side effects: Increased energy
