Spotlight on Multiple Sclerosis 

Multiple Sclerosis by definition is an immune-mediated disease in which abnormal response of the body’s immune system is directed against the Central Nervous System; made up of the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. What this means is that the immune system, inadvertently, attacks the protective layer that covers of the nerves. With damage to the protective layer of the nerves, communication between the brain and the rest of your body is disrupted. This attack on the nerves may ultimately lead to nerve deterioration which is currently irreversible.

Symptoms of MS vary depending on the nerves affected, but they include:

  • Numbness or weakness in one or more limbs
  • Partial or complete loss of vision; often with pain during movement
  • Double vision or blurred vision
  • Tingling or pain in parts of the body
  • Electric-shock sensations with certain neck movements
  • Tremor, lack of coordination or unsteady gait
  • Slurred speech
  • Fatigue and dizziness
  • Problems with bowel and bladder function

Currently, the cause of MS remains unknown. It’s considered an autoimmune disease; a disease where the immune system launches an attack against its own tissues. Researchers have been able to identify which immune cells are attacking the nervous system, some of the factors that cause them to attack and the sites on the nerves that the attacking cells are attracted to. This still doesn’t tell us much on what one can do to prevent the development of MS, however, a recent research has found a link between MS and a lower intake of key nutrients in women.

The study, which will be presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s 67th Annual Meeting, compared the nutrient intake of 27 women with MS to 30 healthy women; women are twice as likely as men to develop MS. The results showed that the women with MS had lower levels of 5 key nutrients that are known for the antioxidant or anti-inflammatory benefits they provide to the body; food folate, Vitamin E, magnesium, lutein-zeaxanthin and quercetin.1“Since MS is a chronic inflammatory disorder, having enough nutrients with anti-inflammatory properties may help prevent the disease or reduce the risk of attacks for those who already have MS,” said study author Sandra Cassard of John Hopkins University in Baltimore. Still, further research must be conducted to determine for certain if these nutritional deficiencies are in fact a cause of MS in women.

As painful and debilitating as MS can be for those who suffer from it, knowing more on the cause and prevention is critical and maintaining optimal health is essential in the prevention of MS. The intake of essential nutrients found in Beyond Tangy Tangerine® 2.0 Citrus Peach Fusion is one way to help your body in disease prevention. Plus, with the new BTT 2.0 Tablets coming soon, it will be easier than ever to get your dose of essential nutrients.
