Biotin (a B vitamin) might help in multiple sclerosis.
For people with progressive multiple sclerosis, there’s hope for a new treatment in the form of a high dose of biotin, a type of B vitamin.
In progressive MS, neurologic function gradually worsens over time as nerve fibers are damaged. Affecting about 1.3 million people worldwide, it can begin when MS is diagnosed (primary-progressive MS) or, more commonly, occur after an initial phase of relapsing-remitting MS (secondary-progressive MS).
So far, most MS therapies have targeted relapsing-remitting MS, and therapies that can slow or stop the development of progressive MS have been frustratingly elusive. Researchers hope that high-dose biotin could help to fill that gap.
