We were told by hubby’s neurologist that Omega 3 and Vitamin B Complex is very good for TBI's?

They are! There is a lot of research about Omega 3 and it is also neuroprotective so very important.

Research also shows that around 50% of vitamin D reserves can be lost (used) following a brain injury and in turn this affects vitamin B levels.

Iron, folates and vitamin D are the three major areas of deficiency found however micronutrient levels are very rarely tested and doctors tend to treat the symptoms of deficiencies with drugs!
