A new study released on February 19, 2015 suggests that people with Multiple Sclerosis may be lower in specific nutrients than people who don't have MS (People With Multiple Sclerosis May Have Lower Levels of Key Nutrients, Science Daily, February 19, 2015). Those nutrients include folate, vitamin E, magnesium, lutein, and quercetin. So this research suggests that optimizing nutrient intake, either through diet and/or supplements, may help prevent Multiple Sclerosis, or may help with the symptoms in those who are already diagnosed.
