VITAMINS SUPPLEMENT SUGGESTION: Can anyone... - Ataxia UK
There is a lot of information on B12 deficiency on healthunlocked.com/pasoc
Frequency seems to vary from person to person
I have a B12 issue due to surgery - no Terminal Ileum ...
You can buy Jarrow B12 Methylcobalamin Lozenges to dissolve under the tongue from Amazon. 5000mcg and 1000mcg. I would advise having a test first to check your level - if it is below 500 then take the 5000mcg. If it is VERY low in the range - or even below - then you should have B12 injections on the NHS.

Hi Richard -
Just click on these two links:
Of all the vitamins and supplements I take I believe the 3 most important are:
1) trehalose - I take 2 heaping tablespoons in coffee every morning. Trehalose is a type of sugar substitute. One can buy it in the U.K. through this website:
2) Niagen - This is an expensive form of vitamin B3. One MUST understand that Niagen is NOT like other older forms of vitamin B3. It has some VERY different chemical properties. Niagen is currently in clinical trials being studied as an aide for Parkinson's. I take 4 pills in the morning and 4 pills at night for a total of 1200 mg per day. This is very expensive.
3) thiamine - also known as vitamin B1. This vitamin is heavily discussed over on the Parkinson's discussion here on Health Unlocked. Many people with Parkinson's report improvement in their symptoms after taking 2,3, or 4 g per day. I take 2.5 g. That is 5 pills of vitamin B1 every morning. Thiamine is very cheap.
BUT . . .
I also believe the single best treatment for people with ataxia is to walk on a treadmill, holding on to the rails if needed, as fast as you can for 30 minutes every day.
