With previous research showing that vitamin D levels in psoriasis patients are seven times lower than in healthy people, there is growing evidence that this micronutrient can potentially play a key role in reducing symptoms of the condition.

For the most effective treatment, however, additional nutrients are also important. Illustrating this, the Dr. Rath Research Institute has published an impressive case report of a 36-year-old woman who had suffered from severe psoriasis since she was 22. The disease was present everywhere except for the face, and the patient had been using topical creams for 14 years with no significant improvement.

While continuing her usual treatment, the patient improved her dietary habits and started taking a specific combination of micronutrients that included vitamin C, lysine, proline, and others in synergistic proportions. The increased intake of micronutrients helped to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation, as well as improving the body’s immune response.

During the second month of taking the micronutrients, the patient started noticing that the psoriatic patches on the upper half of her body were healing. Improvement continued and although the leg lesions were the last to heal, at the end of six months the patient reported complete healing of all the psoriatic plaques.
