OK
Then the problem might be a relative nutrient deficiency and the most likely culprits are
magnesium: should be supplemented daily, 600 to 800 mg. Magnesium taurate
B vitamins A B-100 complex, sustain release, daily.

CoQ10, 100 mg 2 to 3 times a day
Acetyl L carnitine, 500 mg three times a day
D-ribose, 5 grams per day

The last 3 help replete ATP in the mitochondria.

The first 2 are most likely deficient.

600-800 of each?
Mag. Taurate
B Vitamins?
a B-100 complex?
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 5 years ago.
Magnesium 600 to 800 mg per day.
1 B-100 complex once a day.

magnesium taurate is a good form of magnesium orally.
A B-100 complex is a mixture of b vitamins.
