hi maggie i'm on my 2nd bottle of Doctor's Best benfo. take 4 caps (600 mg) a day. 1 in morning, 1 before my afternoon nap, and 2 before bed w/ my ldn. i am sleeping better and the spasticity seems better also. i may increase dosage. my husband also rubs my feet and calves with magnesium oil. i'm completely w/c bound, so spasticity relief and better sleep is a real plus for me.
i don't know if you saw a previous post where i mentioned that Drs Best brand uses the raw ingredients from Japan, which is supposed to be the original, superior form of benfo. other brands come from China and aren't the same quality as Japanese. what brand do you take?
