Vitamin D and multiple sclerosis

View Vitamin D Supplements

Recent research suggests that vitamin D may also be important in the expression of genes that regulate MS35, which seems to support a Harvard study of military personnel that showed a 62% reduction in incidence of MS in those with higher blood serum levels of vitamin D. Moreover, a 2005 study of 79 identical twins studies where just one of each pair of twins had been diagnosed with MS, showed that the affected twin had received less sun exposure than the healthier twin prior to diagnosis.

The healthier twin would therefore have had more frequent opportunities to manufacture good levels of vitamin D. A separate study shows a 55% higher incidence of Parkinson’s disease where there is vitamin D deficiency.37 A pilot scheme is currently looking at the effect of supplementation of varying levels of vitamin D with those already diagnosed with Parkinson’s, and it will be interesting to see if the vitamin’s role as a gene expression trigger and its activity within the central nervous system can help to reverse any of the symptoms related to the disease.
