EFFECTIVE CANKER SORE THERAPY
In February, 2009, the Science Daily reported on a research study conducted by a team of physicians at the Ben Gurion University of the Negev that discovered that a nightly dose of Vitamin B-12 is a simple, effective, and low risk therapy for the prevention of Canker Sores.
It is estimated that 25 % of the general population may be afflicted by Recurrent Apthous Stomatitis (Canker Sores.) Until now there has been no effective therapy according to Ilia Volkov, MD who with her team conducted the research over a six month period.
According to the research “The average outbreak duration and the number of ulcers per month decreased. The levels of pain were also reduced significantly at five and six months of treatment regardless of the initial levels of Vitamin B-12 in the blood. During the last month of treatment a significant number of participants in the study reached ‘no apthous ulcer status’ (74.1%).”
The original article was published in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine,, 2009 and the American Associates, Ben Gurion University of the Negev (2009, February 15) Volkov, et al.
