Many of us are tired. We seem to live a lifestyle that overloads us with self-inflicted demands and the drama of others. A little over three percent of Americans have a disease called myalgic encephalomyelitis. It is also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).
CFS is difficult to treat because the medical community has trouble classifying it from symptoms. You could have a foggy memory, sore throat, headaches, muscle pain, poor sleep, mood swings, depression, weight change and nearly another dozen symptoms.
Your physician might focus on the primary symptoms you have and prescribed something that is not effective against CFS. There are no pharmaceuticals that are successful in treating CFS.
However, researchers have found that roburins from the oak tree work well in reducing many of the symptoms associated with CFS. Human trials with Robuvit showed the following results: 18% reduction in weakness and exhaustion, 44% reduction in poor sleep, 29% reduction in foggy memory, 63% reduction in muscle pain, 51% reduction in joint pain, 13% reduction in headaches, and more.
Other impressive results in these tests were a 51% reduction in sensitivity to noise, foods, medications and chemicals, 38% reduction in dizziness, 58% reduction in depression, 49% reduction in mood swings, 40% reduction in weight change, and more. People felt better in the controlled group receiving Robuvit.
Oak has been used as far back as the Roman Empire to store wine. More recently, it has been used with whiskey, bourbon, sherry, brandy and more. We know oak is used for furniture, flooring, and veneers. Now you have another use for oak wood – to control the symptoms of CFS.
Don’t arbitrarily start munching on a plank of oak or buy a supplement if you are under medical treatment. Bring this information to your doctor. There might be an interaction with your medicines, It is always best to be monitored when making any changes.

That’s interesting information.
This is a very interesting development! Now there is something that has combined effect on so many symptoms of the CFG. I think more research should be carried out on Oak and probably some other herb or plant eventually leading to a more effective cure.
