    If some cases of CFS are actually caused by mitochondrial failure, then I wonder how someone would do by megadosing literally every mitochondrial related supplement that is available. I realize this could be cost prohibitive for the long term, but it would be interesting to see what happened in the short term. Perhaps the could be mega dosed pre/post exersize or activity as well.

    The following supplements could be part of the megadosing experient.

    Creatine Monohydrate: 5 grams BID
    CoQ10 (or a lower dose of ubiquinol): 1000 mg BID
    D-Ribose: 7.5 mg BID
    Adb12: 4000 mcg BID (sublingual)
    NADH: 10-20 mg BID
    Transdermal Magnesium Cholride: 8 sprays BID
    Magnesium L-Threonate: 100 mg BID
    L-Carinitine (optionally NAC or LCF): 2 grams BID
    Pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ): 20 mg BID

    Also this assumes all critical EAA's, minerals, and vitamin intake is already accounted for.


    The following medications could also be used (optional):
    t3 slow release or regular cytomel (carefully titrating up to highest dose that dosen't cause hyperthyroid symptoms)

    Any thoughts on what to add to this list?

    Is this spelled correctly?: Magnesium L-Theorate: 100 mg BID

    thought it was threonate or something like that?

    You might want to read this thread on mitochondrial supplements--many members have discussed them there.

    Thanks, Sushi, I'll check it out. My main idea was the "mega dose concept."

    We have discussed the mega dose concept quite a bit on various threads. There was quite a bit of this discussion of this with Rich.
