Myasthenia Gravis | Life Extension

Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune disease that causes muscle weakness that worsens with activity and improves with rest. Normally, the neurotransmitter acetylcholine stimulates muscular contractions. In most patients with myasthenia gravis, the immune system produces antibodies that block the acetylcholine receptor in muscle cells.

Some integrative therapeutics, such as vitamin D3, astragalus, and creatine may provide benefits or ease symptoms of myasthenia gravis.
