Dosage Compound Class Frequency Dates Notes
Abnormalities of magnesium metabolism have been reported in people with Raynaud's disease. Magnesium deficiency results in blood-vessel spasm, which may be helped with supplementation.
Studies show, people with Raynaud's disease who were given L-carnitine showed less blood-vessel spasm in their fingers in response to cold exposure.
The herb Ginkgo has been reported to improve the circulation in small blood vessels and reduce pain in people with Raynaud's disease.
Fatty acids in evening primrose oil (EPO) inhibit the formation of prostaglandins, which promote blood vessel constriction. One study found that supplementing with EPO reduced the number and severity of attacks.
3gVitamin B3 (Niacin)
3 to 4 grams daily of inositol hexaniacinate. A variation on the B vitamin niacin, inositol hexaniacinate has been shown to reduce arterial spasm and improve peripheral circulation.
4 grams of EPA per day. Supplementing with fish oil may reduce the severity of blood-vessel spasm.
