This review, conducted by research departments in Greece, aimed to evaluate studies on the potential beneficial effects of dietary supplements to control symptoms and relapses in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. Clinical trials showed that nutritional status and supplementation are potential factors affecting the risk and progression of the disease. A high prevalence of vitamin A, B12, and D deficiency amongst MS patients was also documented. Dietary supplements can exert antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and improve depression symptoms and the patients’ quality of life. The researchers suggest a campaign to inform and educate MS patients about the importance of a healthy dietary pattern. More details can be found in the review.
