    I'm new here, 70ish woman, achy and painy for several years. Have read on the web about malic acid, msm helping my aches. Anyone ever had any luck? I'm on SOOOO many drugs for other things, I hate to take another one. Even tried VIOXX and it was a disaster. Any ideas? Rockeyes

    Malic acid did nothing for me, so I just take the plain magnesium now, which is essential for us. For malic acid, I make sure I eat an apple every day as they are loaded with malic acid.

    I take MSM, which helps my allergies a lot, but that is all it has helped.

    I sympathize about the meds. Sometimes I feel like a walking pharmacy!
