Top Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFIDS) Researchers and Physicians Find Nutritional Supplement to Reduce Muscle Pain and Fatigue in Some Cases

  [ 85 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Source: CFIDS Association of America • www.ProHealth.com • October 1, 1994


Chronic Muscle Pain and fatigue caused by CFIDS has been effectively treated with a combination of malic acid and magnesium hydroxide. Leading physicians have found that patients treated with this safe nutritional supplement have reported improvements with muscle pain and fatigue, and have had an increase in exercise tolerance and stamina.

The effectiveness of this supplement combination has a sound scientific base. Malic Acid, a fruit acid extracted from apples, is essential in the formation of ATP, which is our body's source to energy. Malic acid has the ability to allow the body to make ATP more efficiently, even under low oxygen, or hypoxic conditions Magnesium is a mineral which is required for normal enzyme activity, including those enzymes which function in energy transfer.

A recent study in the Journal of Nutritional Medicine postulates that muscle pain and fatigue are predominately caused by the breakdown of muscle proteins due to a deficiency of oxygen and other substances needed for ATP production. Further, the study presented data supporting the critical role of magnesium and malic acid in ATP production under hypoxic conditions.

Jay Goldstein, M.D, a prominent doctor treating patients with the substance claims that "...there is no marker to predict which patients will get these positive results; Fibromyalgia pain may respond within 48 hours while fatigue may take about two weeks." He also finds malic acid to be safe with little toxicity, and may work where more standard treatments have failed.

Paul Cheney, M.D., a North Carolina clinician and leading researcher, has found that the malic acid/magnesium hydroxide supplement may help improve energy and endurance, and decrease muscle frequently seen in CFIDS and Fibromyalgia.

Daniel Peterson, M.D., an Incline Village, California doctor and one of the Original CFID researchers, reports 40% of patients who tried the supplement benefited from it. Most physicians start their patients on the malic acid/magnesium hydroxide supplement slowly, working up to six, and in some cases, twelve capsules daily, Recommended to be taken on an empty stomach, it is considered non-toxic although some people may experience slight intestinal problems. For people who cannot tolerate it on an empty stomach, it may be taken with food or the dosage may be reduced.

This new product is rarely available in health food stores but is available through Physicians who prescribe nutritional supplements.
