Vitamin B-12

This component is vital for erythropoiesis, i.e. manufacturing red blood cells, enhancing nerve pathways, and boosting DNA synthesis and folate required for metabolism. People with fibromyalgia generally have a low B-12 level, which manifests in the form of a frail immune system, numbness and tingling, and excessive tiredness. You have to take sufficient B-12 nutritional supplements, sublingual B-12 under the tongue, or injections with B-12 in them. Ideally, injections inserted directly into the muscles once a week at an interval of 6 weeks is recommended.

Magnesium

Magnesium is the most abundant mineral in our body and is involved in 300 body chemical activity. More than twenty percent of the overall magnesium content in our body is stored in muscle tissues. Hence, it is a vital mineral which supports our muscles, energy production and overall health. When intracellular magnesium level is low, it produces symptoms similar to fibromyalgia such as body weakness, tense and stiff muscles, muscle spasm and pain, low energy levels and fatigue. Magnesium is also needed for conversion of 5-HTP to serotonin, a mood and sleep regulating hormone, which fibromyalgia patients also lack. To increase magnesium levels, natural supplements can be administered, or you could also take magnesium glycinate that helps the muscle to make more energy because it contains malic acid. Take 5-HTP along with magnesium supplements so the rate of its conversion to serotonin increases.
