Top 5 Herbal Supplements for Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disabling disease that affects the nervous system. In MS, the immune system attacks the myelin, a white substance that wraps around nerves to insulate them and to allow them to perform normally. MS disease usually affects the optic nerves, brainstem, cerebellum, and spinal cord. The onset of this disease in 2/3 of all cases occurs between the ages of 20 – 40 years. It is rare to have MS after 50 years of age.

MS is more prevalent in women (60%) than men (40%).
