    There is a product called Fibro malic that was recommended a while ago and it does help as one of the supplements for us.

    Dr P has also taught us that Mg can be normal in the blood values yet intracellular Mg is low. is a must to be repleted.

    Dr Oz stated that all should take 250mg. so I take 250mg twice a day. (one for the normal in me and one for the sick and depleted person I am) BIG help for me. It is a trial and error thing, if all the other minerals and ions in your body are in alignment you can feel better. IT is just so hard to accomplish this.

    I take, Mg, Calcium, B Complex CoQ10 and fish oil as my supplements to my meds. It is part of the whole.

    Oh if it were only as simple as a few things. You should always try if you can.

    Thanks for sharing the malic acid again for the fmily to remember as an option in replacement.......
