- Magnesium: Magnesium deficiency shown by many fibromyalgia sufferers leads to recommended supplement intake of this mineral. It has been demonstrated that patients taking these supplements have fewer episodes of pain. They are advised to take magnesium with malic acid.

There are magnesium malate preparations which have both components.

- Grape seeds: Grape seeds extract may enhance the antioxidant action of vitamin C. The usual dose is 200 mg daily divided into 2 doses.
- Saint John's wort: St. John's wort extracts standardized with hypericin at 3% are used to decrease the sensation of pain and treat depressive symptoms that accompany this syndrome.
