What Is It?
The primary symptom of fibromyalgia is muscle pain, although it is often accompanied by fatigue, mood changes, sleep difficulties and memory problems. The cause is often unclear, but several nutrients have shown good success in improving its symptoms. Advanced Fibromyalgia Support is the first fibromyalgia product to provide high doses of several of the most effective and commonly used supplements to help reduce the symptoms of fibromyalgia, including d-ribose, magnesium malate and 5-HTP. Advanced Fibromyalgia Support is in powder form, making it easier to get effective doses of each ingredient.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: Advanced Fibromyalgia Support is designed to improve quality of life by reducing muscle pain, improving mood and sleep, and increasing energy. The compound found most effective and best tolerated is 5-HTP. With 5-HTP, people have reported better mood, better sleep and less pain with 100-300 mg a day. Magnesium reduces muscle pain, cramps and brain fog, and helps with sleep, while malic acid improves energy production. D-Ribose increases energy, reduces post-exercise pain, reduces brain fog and fatigue, and improves sleep. People have also reported fewer knots and trigger points in their muscles.
Who Should Take It?
Advanced Fibromyalgia Support is designed to help those suffering with fibromyalgia to lead a more normal, good quality lifestyle by reducing pain and increasing energy.
Forty-one patients with a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia Syndrome and/or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome were given D-ribose, a naturally occurring pentose carbohydrate, at a dose of 5 g three times a day for a total of 280 g. D-ribose, which was well-tolerated, resulted in a significant improvement in all five visual analog scale (VAS) categories: energy; sleep; mental clarity; pain intensity; and well-being, as well as an improvement in patients' global assessment. Approximately 66% of patients experienced significant improvement while on D-ribose, with an average increase in energy on the VAS of 45% and an average improvement in overall well-being of 30%.
