Abstract: “Management of Fibromyalgia: Rationale for the Use of Magnesium and Malic Acid” by Guy E. Abraham, MD, FACN, and Jorge D. Flechas, MD, MPH

Drs. Abraham and Flechas postulate that Fibromyalgia symptoms are predominantly caused by enhanced gluconeogenesis with breakdown of muscle proteins, resulting from a deficiency of oxygen and other subtances needed for ATP synthesis. They present data supporting a critical role for magnesium and malate in ATP production under aerobic and hypoxia conditions, and indirect evidence for magnesium and malate deficiency in FM.
