A study conducted by scientists at the University of Oxford, suggests that maintenance of vitamin D levels reduces the risk of multiple sclerosis.
The same recommendation comes from another study from the Medical University of New Jersey in the United States.
According to these studies, vitamin D plays an extraordinary protective role for the brain.
Additional data from the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands suggests that people diagnosed with multiple sclerosis should consume vitamin D.
According to them, vitamin D manages to reduce the frequency and severity of disease symptoms.
What happens in the body when a person is affected by multiple sclerosis?
When a person is affected by multiple sclerosis, the immune system is attacked.
The target of this attack is the protective layer of nerve cells.
The lack of this layer known as myelin significantly damages the nerves.
This nerve damage affects the brain, spine and optic nerves of the eye.
Man faces problems with vision, balance, muscle control and other basic functions.
First, vitamin D has a very positive role in the immune system.
Sunlight is the body's most efficient source of vitamin D.
This greatly explains why multiple sclerosis is observed in communities living in places far from the equator.
Scientific data confirms that adults aged 19 to 70 need 600 units of vitamin D per day.
After age 71, the dose of vitamin D should be increased to over 800 units.
If you are diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency, then you should make sure that you will get up to 50,000 units of vitamin per week for up to 3 months.
Experts warn caution about high doses of vitamin D that can cause toxicity in the body.
If you overdo it with vitamin D you will suffer from dizziness, nausea and constipation.
Other symptoms include loss of appetite, lethargy and weight loss.
Moreover, this toxicity increases the levels of calcium in the body. This then leads to the appearance of kidney stones.
