Vitamin D may benefit people with multiple sclerosis, says Johns Hopkins research

High dosages of vitamin D could aid those with multiple sclerosis.

Taking a high dose of vitamin D3 is safe for people with multiple sclerosis (MS) and may help regulate the body’s hyperactive immune response, according to a pilot study published in the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.

“These results are exciting, as vitamin D has the potential to be an inexpensive, safe and convenient treatment for people with MS,” says study author Peter Calabresi, M.D.

“More research is needed to confirm these findings with larger groups of people and to help us understand the mechanisms for these effects, but the results are promising.”
