Do Nutritional Supplements Really Work?
Several different energy producing and anti-oxidant supplements might be beneficial for reducing the symptoms of fibromyalgia, according to research published over the past few months. You may already be taking supplements to build strength, provide fuel to your cells, reduce your pain, or increase your energy.
For the most part, many supplements have little or no side effects and some are reasonably inexpensive. While the various research studies are promising, the Fibromyalgia Network wants to know if any of the supplements have brought about significant improvements in the way you feel. We are interested in finding out whether you have tried supplements in the past year and what improvements in symptoms (if any) they provided.
We understand that budgets are spread thin and would like to determine which supplements are most cost effective. Results of this survey will be posted in a future eNews Alert for Members, with an abbreviated report in the Latest News section of the Fibromyalgia Network website. Check back for results at a later date.
