People with ME/CFS have frequently been found to have a number of marginal nutritional deficiencies, including various B vitamins, vitamin C, magnesium, sodium, zinc, L-tryptophan, carnitine, coenzyme Q10, and essential fatty acids.[1]

Many people with ME/CFS take dietary supplements, including natural or herbal supplements, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and fatty acids. Most of these can be derived from a healthy diet but are available in pill form, sometimes in higher doses than that provided by a healthy diet. The Canadian Consensus Criteria states that the nutritional principles in Travell, Simons et al are helpful.[2]
