  Vitamins to Assist Management of Epilepsy

Steven Godlewski

Epilepsy is the name given to any of a variety of neurological disorders that are characterized by sudden recurring attacks of motor, sensory or psychic malfunction that may occur with or without loss of consciousness or convulsive seizures.

For some with epilepsy treatment with drugs in necessary at all times while others may not need or desire to use prescription medication to assist with the management of the disease. No matter which of these two categories you may fall under, vitamins may be a very appealing addition to managing the disease.

There are a number of vitamins and minerals that have been shown to be helpful in the management of epilepsy and its many symptoms and affects. The key to vitamins working to treat or manage any condition you may have is to have the correct balance among the vitamins you're including in your diet so that your body can absorb the necessary amount in order to do your body any good. There are certain vitamins that will only be absorbed when taken in combination with other vitamins, so it's crucial to have the correct combination.

The vitamins listed below were selected for their ability to have the optimum benefit to persons with epilepsy based on the facts that they assist in the maintenance of key areas of the body that are impacted the most by the disease or because they are necessary in the proper absorption of other vitamins listed.

Bioflavonoids - prevent and treat cataracts, promote circulation, lower cholesterol, have antibacterial properties, and help relieve pain, bumps and bruises associated with athletic injuries. Bioflavonoids also enhance the absorption of vitamin C.

B12 - prevents anemia by regulating red blood cell formation and iron utilization. It aids in digestion and cell formation and also prevents nerve damage by maintaining the sheaths that cover them.

Coenzyme Q10 - an antioxidant similar to Vitamin E, stimulates the immune system, is pivotal in cellular energy production, aids circulation and tissue oxygenation, acts as an antihistamine, and has anti-aging properties.

B9 - works with Vitamin B12 and C as a co-enzyme in the breakdown and utilization of proteins. It is important for the formation of red blood cells and processes of growth and reproduction.

B3 - lowers cholesterol, enhances memory, aids the nervous system, helps the metabolism, is necessary for digestion and improves circulation.

B6 - aids in the metabolizing of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins; helps in the formation of red blood cells, helps maintain good vision and also helps regulate the central nervous system and helps protect against stress.

B1 - important for digestion, carbohydrate metabolizing, blood formation and brain functions.

Vitamin C - performs hundreds of functions in the body, is crucial for the production of antibodies, strengthens connective tissues, helps reduce the duration and severity of a cold, assists with wound healing, and protects other vitamins from oxidation.

Vitamin D - helps the intestines absorb and use calcium and phosphorus, regulates heartbeat and is necessary for blood clotting and thyroid function.

As always it is essential that you discuss any changes to your diet or methods of treating your epilepsy with your physician prior to making the changes. Certain vitamins, minerals and nutrients make react adversely with medications you are currently taking or may be prescribed in the future. You should make a list of the vitamins mentioned above and discuss their benefits and/or risks associated with current treatment methods you're receiving or that may be prescribed to you in the future.

The greater part of this amount is present in bones in combination with phosphate and carbonate. Bone ashes contain less than one per cent magnesium. About one-fifty of the total magnesium in the body is present in the soft tissues, where it is mainly bound to protein. Next to potassium, magnesium is the predominant metallic action in living cells. The bones seem to provide a reserve supply of this mineral in case of shortage elsewhere in the body. Biochemists call magnesium the "cool, alkaline, refreshing, sleep-promoting mineral." Magnesium helps one keep calm and cool during the sweltering summer months. It aids in keeping nerves relaxed and normally balanced. It is necessary for all muscular activity.
