i take calcium, c, fish oil, coq, multi, resveratrol, magnesium, glucosamine, cat's claw, andrographis, b complex and xango (and probiotics).

i seem to do well on this protocol.

but is there one vitamin that has helped you the most, or as much as it can?

I don't think you can single out any one nutrient, just like you can't single out any one abx. I tried to pay attention to symptoms, diet, and treatment and optimize my chances. My doc did have many suggestions, most of which I at least tried Some seemed to help quite a bit, but all may have been involved in my ultimately beating the lyme, at least for now.
-Grapefruit seed extract with olive leaf extract, between meals 2/day. (my first line of attack even pre-llmd).

-garlic, as much as I could choke down, and caps of several types, too. i am sure it had a very good effect against lyme.
Part of the Chinese herbal arsenal against Babesia.

-Artimesia anua, the other part of chinese herbal treatment for babesia. Alternated the whole dried herb (caps) with its extract, artimisinin (from 'Vitanet")

"nutrijoint", or "nutrajoint"--glucosamine or condroitiun sulfate suppliment.

Psyllium husk powder. and Yarrow--regulatec abx saturated bowels.
-
gingko- natural blood thinner that helps get other supplements and drugs where they have to go (into brain, for example...)
-

Well, there's a few, but now I must sleep. Have as good a night as possible!

Vitamin...

I'm waiting for someone to say P5P - the active form of B6.

Sublingual (Source Naturals makes it...cheap), but if this is in a gelatin capsule it might work too:

P5P works WITH Mg and pyrophosphate (PPi)

Which one? Sublingual or the timed release? Timed release contains MORE.

If you take the sublingual form...only once a day or more often?

I think my son needs more than the 25mg sublingual.

I think he can't process B6 to P5P...the signs are all there.
