Tip of the Day

In a one-month open label trial, Bramwell et al (2000) gave 500mg per day of a blend containing 100mg ascorbigen and 400mg broccoli powder to 12 female FM patients. Patients showed a mean decrease in their physical impairment score and total fibromyalgia impact scores and an increase in the mean threshold pain level. However, the mean physical impairment score 2 weeks post treatment showed a significant return to near pretreatment level, and a larger, double-blind study is needed.
