About 5 million Americans — most of them women — suffer from fibromyalgia, a chronic condition that's notoriously difficult to treat. However, sufferers can find relief from taking supplements containing malic acid.

Fibromyalgia is known to cause fatigue, pain and other symptoms such as sleep troubles and memory problems. Supplements containing malic acid, an organic compound found in fruits such as apples, could have potential benefits in treating this chronic condition.

Here are five benefits of malic acid to sufferers of fibromyalgia:

1. Pain relief: A small study published in 1995 found that taking malic acid in combination with magnesium helped alleviate pain and tenderness in fibromyalgia patients, according to About Health. Though several days of consistent consumption are necessary for the supplement to take full effect, it can start to reduce pain as quickly as 48 hours after the first supplement is taken, reports Acidpedia.

2. Increased tolerance to exercise: People who have fibromyalgia usually have a difficult time exercising because they often get exhausted quickly even through moderate exercise. According to Livestrong, malic acid has been found to increase tolerance to exercise in people who have fibromyalgia, which allows them to exercise for longer time periods or at higher intensities.

3. Increased energy: This is another benefit that has been reported among fibromyalgia sufferers taking malic acid. According to Livestrong, the energy increases because malic acid is an essential component in the Krebs cycle, which is the process through which our bodies convert food into energy.

4. Safety: Because malic acid is naturally occurring and is found in many fruits people eat safely every day, it is generally regarded as safe. No serious or dangerous side effects have been reported regarding those who take it, according to Livestrong.

5. Easy availability: Malic acid supplements are widely available for purchase online and are sold in many natural-foods stores, drugstores, and stores specializing in dietary supplements.
