Tips for a multiple sclerosis diet

The nerve fibers in the body of people suffering from multiple sclerosis get damaged. This is because multiple sclerosis damages the layer of myelin present on the nerve fiber, a substance that protects nerves and helps in transmitting signal throughout the body.

Multiple sclerosis is one of the common neurological diseases in young adults.
There are some dietary factors that appear to have an impact on people suffering from multiple sclerosis. Hence, understanding the role of diet while suffering from multiple sclerosis could help one in having fewer relapses and lead a better quality of life.
Multiple sclerosis is a brain disorder that affects the nervous system. So, it is important to have multiple sclerosis diets that support a healthy immune system. A diet that helps to improve beneficial gut flora might help to achieve this.

Here are few food products that are good for people suffering from multiple sclerosis.

Probiotics
Probiotics are present in food products such as fermented foods, yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, fermented tea. These contain lacto-bacteria which is a type of beneficial bacteria. Adjusting the gut flora using probiotics might prove to be helpful for people suffering from multiple sclerosis. This is because these bacteria help in improving the entire immune system of the body.

Fiber
Fiber found in plant foods such as fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds, and legumes help in promoting optimal health by nourishing the gut bacteria and regulate bowel movements, thus keeping the heart healthy, which is difficult to maintain for people suffering from multiple sclerosis. Being a filling food source, fiber also helps you keep full.

Vitamin D
Since we have eliminated consuming vitamin D through milk, as it contains saturated fats, other sources rich in vitamin D, such as egg yolks, canned sardines, and cod liver oil can be consumed. Exposure to morning sunlight can prove to be a protective nutrient for people suffering from multiple sclerosis.

PUFAs
PUFAs or Polyunsaturated fatty acids help in maintaining a healthy body and controls inflammation. It appears to improve brain as well as cardiac health which is weak in people suffering from multiple sclerosis. Foods that contain PUFAs include fatty fish such as salmon and mackerel. Plant based oil (except coconut and palm oil) are also rich PUFAs.

Biotin
Biotin is also referred to as vitamin B or Vitamin H. It is usually found in foods such as eggs, yeast, liver, and kidney. High-dose of biotin may benefit some people suffering from multiple sclerosis.
Before going on any type of multiple sclerosis diets, it is very important to consult a doctor, as they will be able to guide one better as to which foods to include and which food products to avoid in a multiple sclerosis diet.
