While there is limited information on the role nutrition plays in combatting the symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), a few studies have elicited some interesting findings. Since CFS can be a debilitating condition, causing extreme fatigue with no cure, any information on the role of diet may be beneficial for those battling the condition.

Fish and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

In some cases, CFS is considered a long-term side effect of a type of food poisoning called Ciguatera caused by fish (usually red snapper or grouper). Eliminating fish from the diet may prevent someone from ever initially developing CFS.

Treating Chronic Fatigue Syndrome with Probiotics and Chocolate

Evidence has shown that taking probiotics may reduce the “gut dysfunction” often associated with CFS. Interestingly, consuming real chocolate that contains cacao phytonutrients may reduce the symptoms of CFS as well.
