Supplement Recommendations?

Supplement Recommendations?

I started Magnesium Citrate, Probiotics and Collagen Peptides yesterday. The magnesium is good for relaxing muscles, nerves, bone and heart health. The probiotics is to fix issues with my gut and has 8 billion cpu’s. The collagen peptides help my joints, hair, skin and nails. Any other recommendations would be greatly appreciated. None of my medications will interfere with any supplements I checked that out ahead of time. Thanks for your help, it’s greatly appreciated. πŸ’œπŸŒ»

so dr,s say fibro is caused by low seratonin which is why they start you on ssri,s which cause horrible side effects , so I started researching if there are natural ways to boost seratonin and discovered much to my surprise that 90 percent is made in the Gut !!!! ( I’m sure you Cynthia already know this 🀣) Not the brain which makes total sense as a lot of us were diagnosed after having a serious infection which we were all given hard core antibiotics for ( levofloxin in my case ) . So therefore if we heal our gut with probiotics and the things Cynthia mentioned macro nutrients etc it should greatly improve our symptoms right ???!!!

You may want to try Magnesium Malate instead of Citrate, as Malate helps with energy levels.

Thanks so much for this info April. I’m in the process of trying to treat my fibro naturally so this is super helpful. I have been doing tons of research as well. I also have endometreosis & inflammitory arthritis (diagnosed last April either Lupus or RA) I had pleurisy and was give an antibiotic when I was 13. I got better for a few days after taking the antibiotic then relapsed and had to take another stronger antibiotic. Shortly after was the start of my Fibromyalgia. What you’re saying totally makes sense to me. After the pleurisy I had mono, walking pneumonia, bronchitis several times and tonsilitis several times which were all treated with antibiotics. Kidney infections and uti’s from my Endometreosis which were treated the same way. I started refusing to take any antibiotics a few years ago beacuse they are so bad for your gut among other things. I hope and pray fixing our guts gives us all some relief with our symptoms. I hope you have a low pain and low fatigue kind of day πŸŒ»πŸ’œ Gentle Hugs and Positive Vibes πŸŒ»πŸ’œ

Surely Missyboo πŸ™‚ Vitamin D3 is very helpful, I have been on 100 mcg’s per day for about two years as well as 500 mg of Vitamin C for a healthy immune system. I also should see the sun more than I do. I hope this helps you πŸ’œπŸŒ» If you ever have any questions or need to talk, I’m here for you πŸ’œπŸŒ» I was diagnosed at age 13 and I’m now 37 so I have alot of experience with all of this. I hope you have a low pain & fatigue kind of day. Gentle Hugs & Positive Vibes πŸ’œπŸŒ»
