Can anyone tell me where I can get the malic acid and magnesium that everyone is talking about on this forum?  I would like to order it online, but am not sure what it is called, or how much to take.  Thanks for any info.

MOst of us go to You can order it there with the magnesium in it. It may not say that in the ad, but it is in there. I started out with one tab a day and gradually worked my way up to four a day. Two in morning and two in the afternoon. They have sales going on all of the time. buy one get two three. Now it is three for one which is the same thing.

Good luck on finding the malic/mag combo. I hope that it works for you.

Hugs, karen...

Karen's right, there's a good sale on Malic Acid at right now. Here's a direct link:
Start slowly and work your way up to 4 tablets a day and don't forget to take a calcium supplement too.

I just ordered this supplement for my daughter. It was buy one get two free. So for 3 bottles plus s/h it only costs $20. Very reasonable.

She is finally weaned from the heavy narcotics her stupid doc got her addicted too. She is finding that she is not having as much pain now that she is off the opiods. We think she had developed a opiod pain syndrome from being on such strong meds for so long. She is really excited to try the malic acid/magnesium after I told her the success so many have had with it. Thanks for sharing this information, we are so happy to try it.

I ordered the Malic Acid from Puritin for the deal of buy one get two free. It arrived not long after I made the purchase. The bottles are big so I believe this is a good deal. I'm up to 4 pills already and haven't noticed any change but I have been under a lot of stress so I don't think the supplements could help anyway. I'm sticking with it at least until things settle down and my life gets back to normal (normal for fibro normal anyway).

I checked out the prices for Malic Acid at my local stores before ordering from Puritan's Pride. While one bottle was cheaper at my local store, with the current buy one/get two free offer at Puritan - it was wayyyy cheaper at Puritan. Plus, on the day I placed my order. shipping was only $1.

I take more magnesium each day than is in 4 tablets of Malic Acid so I also bought some extra magnesium. My order was sent quickly and I loved the bargains.

I have a history of calcium oxalate kidney stones and two surgeries. Then I went to a nephrologist who put me on 25mg of hydrochlorothyazide a day and BINGO! No more kidney stones! Helped my high blood pressure and the side effect of the med is that you retain calcium in the blood stream and don't spill it into the urine. Now, post menopause I have mild osteoporosis in my spine and am on calcium and still no stones!

Talk to your doc. Might be worth a try.

Metagenics makes a product called Fibroplex which has magnesium and malic acid along with other minerals and B vitamins.

A few of my doc's have recommended this brand and supplement. High quality and not too expensive.

Some other brands have much higher levels of malic acid per tablet which my body doesn't tolerate. I'm only taking 1/2 tablet 2-3 times a day right now.
