Magnesium Cures Leg Cramps

Thursday, 06 December 2012 09:53 AM EST

Question: I’m getting terrible night cramps in my calves on a regular basis. Is there a cure for this?

Dr. Cwynar's answer:
The most common cause of leg cramps at night is lack of magnesium. I recommend taking 1,000 mg of this mineral before bedtime. If this does not work, you can check for other factors. There are many other nutritional causes of leg cramps. The most precise way to identify which applies to you is the micronutrient test by SpectraCell Labs. They have a website (spectracell.com) with locations of blood draw stations. The test is typically covered by insurance if it is requested by your doctor.
