This product is a lifesaver for CFS patients

In 1997, I came down with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). I was out of work for most of 1997 and 1998 with the illness. During that time, I did find products that helped me cope with some of the mental (brain fog) issues associated with the illness but my energy levels were still lacking. In the fall of 2004, I started taking octacosanol which was part of a blend in another product. It was very expensive. After several years, I started buying Now Foods, Octacosanol, 5000 mcg, 100 Capsules and I have been using them daily ever since as part of my regiment to combat CFS. While I will never be 100% cured of this illness, the octacosanol has increased my energt levels and has allowed me to resume my life. If you have energy issues, I highly recommend this product.

But so far so good, I can at least tolerate this supplement. I'm trying it because I have Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, a disease with many similarities to MS. Have been reading Dr Atkin's comments on how Ca-AEP is the number one treatment for MS, and Octacosanol is number two.
