I noticed it contains malic acid, also.  It sounds like a good combination of ingredients.
Thanks in advance for any input.

No, but I did a search, and found this >
PS, Interestingly, I hardly ever used to eat fruit.... or, so far as I know, much of anything that contained malic acid. In my new life / body, I eat a ton of fruit, so I guess this is another possible reason for my greatly improved condition.

On a mission to help at least one person with Fibro / IBS, knock it into submission like I have. More than one person would be even better though ;)

Thanks much, Fish. I appreciate that info!

I'm trying to eat more fruits/vegetables, also. It really does seem that I feel better when I do!

Have a great day!

I take a multiple vitamin from Walmart and add the malic acid/magnesium to it.  I take what the blind study showed was effective and I also posted about that in Fibro 101.  A little malic acid did nothing in the blind studies.  They had to reach a certain amount to achieve less pain.

Thanks for the info, Sherrine. :)

I sure wish that Puritan still had the 'old' form of the magnesium/malic acid, though I'm also anxious to try their 'new' one. But since it's not one of 'their' name-brand products, no BOGO applies, I'm told. I phoned Puritan today and told the lady that many of us with fibro like the magnesium/malic acid product, so maybe they'll have it back in stock soon. I hope so!
