Do You Get Cramps?
Too little potassium, calcium or magnesium in your diet can contribute to leg cramps.
Tikun Ormus is high in Magnesium and Potassium.
Night Time Leg Cramps
Night leg cramps are sudden, painful, involuntary contractions of muscles in your leg.
In most cases, night leg cramps involve your calf muscles, but muscles in your feet or thighs may cramp as well.
Most of the time, true night leg cramps occur for no known reason, and they are harmless.
However, in rare situations, night leg cramps can be associated with an underlying disorder such as peripheral artery disease or diabetes.
These are the normal activities which are recommended supposedly may help prevent night leg cramps: drink plenty of fluids, wear shoes with proper support, stretch your leg muscles for a couple of minutes before going to bed by flexing your foot up toward your head, massaging the cramped muscle with your hands or with ice, walking or jiggling the leg, or taking a hot shower or warm bath.
It is obvious to all of us who have experienced these excruciatingly painful and debilitating cramps, that the people who write this stuff have never experienced these cramps.
Rubbing ice onto your muscles is possibly one of the worst things you can do. You need to keep your legs warm at all costs.
Even a fan blowing on your legs can set these cramps off.
In Reality Though
In truth, for those of us who have suffered these extremely painful awakening jolts in the middle of the night, I can tell you that there are 2 things which do work.
1. Keep your legs and feet warm while you sleep (this critical).
2. Do leg stretching exercise morning and evening.
3. Also do TOE stretching exercise morning and evening.
4. Tikun Ormus is a product I was introduced to and it has had such a profound beneficial affect on reducing my cramps, within just 4 weeks, to almost zero, that I invested in the company.
Don't get me wrong, I still get mild cramps, but these are not like the cramps I was getting before where it felt like a tractor was tearing my leg off. These cramps are (so far) all cold related (like when I kick the blankets off) and they are so mild, I just pull the blankets back over me and go back to sleep.
And the best part is that there is no excruciating pain afterwards.
Keeping your legs warm is crucial to reducing cramping.
