Advice & Tips: Don't over do it make sure to have have enough of all vitamins before taking large amounts of vitamin D. It is hard to pin point if anything I take has a direct substantial impact on MS as I take many many things. I feel that all of the supplements I take essentially defeat all issues I have with RRMS. This of course combined with a proper diet and consistent exercise.
Cost: < $25 monthly

Advice & Tips: I specifically take vitamin D3. I think this vitamin is great, it gives me energy and helps keep up a good mood. I take a very large dose (according to my doctor) but I don't care. I have heard of doctors that take 10,000 int units daily. I wonder if the effectiveness for MS is slated because people do not take enough to notice positive effects.

Advice & Tips: It's a nearly harmless inexpensive substance. I personally believe that for people that are rarely out side, D3 supplementation can have a very positive effect. 2000iu is about equal to 15min full body sunlight I deduce. I have read some unconventional doctors personally take 10000iu D3 a day. It seems to actually make me happy as an unexpected side effect. I believe I am much more healthy because of it.

Advice & Tips: I have learned that it really helps prevent and shorten colds. It is also a vitamin that doesn't get flushed out of your system so it can poison if there is too much taken. I have started taking it to ward off colds and an trying to get more sun instead
