Imagine waking up one day to discover you can’t see from one eye. Or finding you can’t hold your coffee cup any longer as your arm has become weak and numb. These are some of the rather alarming experiences of people with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), an inflammatory disease of the central nervous system (CNS) that affects more than 2.5 million people worldwide.
Research suggests that Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease, in which the immune system is provoked into attacking the myelin sheaths that protect neurons in the CNS. What provokes the immune response is unclear, and at this stage there is no ‘vaccine’ or cure for MS. There are disease-modifying treatments, but these are modestly effective at best and some come with the risk of severe side effects. It’s understandable that many people with Multiple Sclerosis turn to holistic therapies, particularly nutritional supplements, in order to manage the course of the disease.
One of the most important factors in managing Multiple Sclerosis is avoiding infections, as the immune response required to fight off pathogens frequently provokes further autoimmune attacks on the nervous system. The immunity and growth factors present in MIP Colostrum help bolster the immune system’s defences to keep you well; at the same time, a substance called proline-rich polypeptides or PRPs works to modulate or ‘calm down’ the immune system to prevent further attacks on the myelin. The complex growth factors in MIP Colostrum may also help to repair the damage caused by previous MS attacks, and reduce the severity of damage when an attack does take place.
Along with the specific benefits of taking MIP Colostrum for Multiple Sclerosis, you enjoy the overall boost to wellbeing that makes management of any chronic health condition easier to face. MIP Colostrum may help to reduce the fatigue and ‘brain fog’ common to MS sufferers, improve energy levels, and reduce muscle pain and tightness – very positive steps in coping with this often-debilitating disease.
