In fibromyalgia, it is important to get the muscles to relax which will help reduce the pain that most patients feel. Magnesium works as a wonderful muscle relaxant. Omega 3 capsules can help fight inflammation that many people with fibromyalgia experience. Vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin, is important too – both for pain reduction and improving immunity. SAM-e (S-adenosylmethionine) is also beneficial for addressing pain in fibromyalgia.
