Leg cramps seem to strike when you are most relaxed and your body is healing. Find out here, how you can prevent night time leg cramps with a simple juice.
If you can get your leg to stretch out and relax, you can get a cramp to pass quickly. However, you may find it much less painful to simply prevent leg cramps in the first place by ensuring that you get enough potassium and magnesium from your diet.
Keeping your potassium and magnesium level stable is one of the best things you can do to avoid muscle cramps. Potassium and magnesium are the most prominent electrolyte found in your body, especially in muscle cells. Like sodium, it maintains homeostasis within the body.
When your potassium levels get too low, you may suffer low blood - potassium concentration. This often leads to weakness and muscle cramps. Your potassium levels may crash in case you sweat a lot or drink insufficient amount of water. Clearly, keeping your potassium and magnesium levels up is the important thing to avoiding muscle cramps. Drinking fresh juices high in potassium can naturally boost your levels.
