The Body Composition and Nutritional Neuroscience lab at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is recruiting adults between 18-64 years with Multiple Sclerosis for a study that investigates the importance of nutrition for eye health and thinking ability among persons with Multiple Sclerosis. Participation involves taking a daily nutrient supplement for 4 months and involves two in-person testing sessions. Assessments will include completion of questionnaires, eye scans, computer tests of attention and memory, and a small sample of
blood. Participants will be compensated for their full participation. Compensation may be available for travel.
