Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Supplements
While there are no medications specifically designed to treat chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), supplements can help you to manage your illness.
There are several vitamins and supplements that will help you to feel better even though they’re not a cure.
Magnesium is a mineral that has been shown to help ease some of the fatigue from chronic fatigue syndrome.
You can take it alone in the form of a supplement or you may want to take it in combination with calcium.
Fish oil supplements that contain omega-3 fatty acids can also be beneficial.
Fish oil supplements are great for heart health, but what many people don’t know is that they can improve your serotonin levels as well.
That’s the chemical in your brain that helps you to feel happy.
In fact some studies have shown that fish oil is as effective as antidepressants in improving serotonin levels and mood.
You should make sure to talk to your doctor before taking fish oil to make certain it won’t interfere with other medications you’re taking.
Vitamin D can also be critical in helping you to have more energy. It’s a good idea to get your vitamin D levels tested to see if you have a deficiency.
Taking vitamin D every day can help you to have more energy and a stronger immune system.
DHEA is a supplement that helps your nervous system to work better.
Many people with chronic fatigue syndrome have found that DHEA helps to reduce symptoms and make chronic fatigue syndrome more manageable. This is especially true if you feel like you’re mood has been affected by CFS.
St. John’s Wort and SAM-E are supplements that can also help to improve symptoms of depression that can often come from having a chronic illness.
You may find that these supplements help you to manage your life better and keep you from slipping into depression.
Ginseng also helps you to have more energy. This herb has been used widely in Asian countries to help people fight fatigue and has recently become more popular worldwide. This supplement is widely available in pill form.
You may also get benefits from taking coenzyme Q10, or CoQ10. This is a chemical that helps your cells to produce more energy.
It actually comes from the parts of cells that create energy and many people report great improvements in energy from using it.
All of these supplements are readily available and easy to find.
And while most of them are free from side effects, it’s always a good idea to talk to your healthcare provider before you begin taking any type of vitamin or supplement.
