Treatment of the Week – vitalMAX for Restless Legs Syndrome
“A couple of years ago I started to suffer from involuntary twitching in both my legs. It came upon me whenever I was sitting still for long periods – such as a long car journey or when at the cinema. Some nights it was almost impossible to get to sleep – or stay asleep for that matter. It sounds stupid and other people can’t understand what it feels like. But they certainly get annoyed if I’m sitting near to them when it kicks off.
My doctor diagnosed Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) but there is little known about the problem and even less they can do to help. Then last winter I heard about a supplement called vitalMAX. It claims to help by increasing the natural level of dopamine – a neurotransmitter in the brain that controls movement and co-ordination. Within a month of taking the supplement daily, my RLS was significantly reduced. I ran out once and within a couple of days my RLS was back to full force, so I make sure not to let that happen again. Finally I can sit still, relax, sleep well – and take the family to see a film at the cinema without embarassing them.”
