How To Get Rid Of Leg Cramps

There’s some evidence that stretching helps. A small 2012 study found people who completed hamstring and calf stretches just before bed enjoyed a 59% drop in spasm frequency. Dr. Garrison says that, for many years, quinine pills were the go-to treatment And while they provided “a modest benefit”, he says, they also caused some dangerous side effects like an irregular heartbeat and too-low blood platelet counts.

Lack of magnesium Causes legs cramping.  Some studies show that nearly 70% of Americans don’t get enough of the mineral. Ensuring you have plenty of magnesium in your diet may help. Beans, nuts, whole grains, and leafy greens are good dietary sources. You could also try drinking more water during the day, especially in you’re exercising. One small group study found taking vitamin E helps muscle cramping.

Besides that, if the legs are exposed to low temperatures for a long time, the muscles will be stimulated, causing leg cramps. An inaccurate sleeping posture, such as prolonged prone, will cause a certain muscle in the calf to appear “passive contracture”, causing leg cramps. As our age increases, the level of estrogen in the human body will decrease, this will lead to osteoporosis, low blood calcium levels increased muscle stress, etc., which will also cause leg cramps.

Home Remedies To Stop Muscle Cramping

so, here are some suggestions what we can think of to stop leg cramps

  •  1. When you sleep, pay attention to cold and warm, don’t let the muscles of your legs get cold.
  • 2. Exercise time should not be too long, don’t let your legs get too tired.

  2. Heat the liquor with a higher degree of heat (do not let it burn), pour a few drops into the palm of your hand, then rub it up and down with the palm of your hand for 2 minutes, so that the skin of the sputum is red, which can promote muscles. blood circulation.
