If you suffer from fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), or myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), your life may feel like an ongoing struggle of nasty symptoms aggravated by fatigue. Just cooking daily meals can exhaust you. But you also know that if you don’t get adequate nutrition, your condition can worsen.
Digestive functioning is often compromised in people with autoimmune disorders, so they are unable to absorb all of the nutrients from their food. With poor digestion and absorption, even if you are eating a healthy diet, you may not be getting nourished properly. This lack of nourishment adds to your fatigue, interferes with your body’s ability to heal, and may cause you to become underweight.
One answer is to supplement your normal diet with a high quality supplement shake such as Absorb Plus. Absorb Plus is an all-natural way to lessen or even eliminate some of the most common symptoms and side effects of fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue – including weight loss or gain, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, and infections.
