Magnesium for muscle cramp supplements are effective t for alleviating muscle cramps and can be used as effectively for children, teens and adults.

Before I started taking magnesium for muscle cramp, I was a regular sufferer of body cramps. And body cramps can be terrible. I do not know if you have ever woken up in the middle of the night with awful leg cramps or your toes stuck together from a cramp. It is absolutely awful and it can happen at any time, out of the blue.

Magnesium can prevent these cramps. Sports people often take magnesium supplements because they are susceptible to muscle cramps and women who are going through menopause also often take magnesium to prevent muscle cramps. Muscle cramps are not just afflictions of sports people or middle-aged women though; they can affect anyone and they are horrible!

Magnesium in powder form

I take my magnesium supplement in powder form as I have found this effective for me, and I buy multiple sachets at a time. My children prefer to take the magnesium capsules as they don’t like the taste of magnesium sachets, although I honestly cannot taste a thing when I drink them. It is a personal preference and you can take the powders, capsules or pills. Read the instructions before you start taking magnesium so you know what or how many you should take daily. Magnesium is inexpensive and really is a wonder supplement. For me, it helped not just with my body cramps but it seemed to help me sleep at night; I can be a terrible insomniac, and I felt more settled and balanced with it. And I should not use the past tense, as I still take magnesium daily. I have not had a muscle cramp for a long time.

Natural magnesium

If you prefer not to take supplements then you should ensure that you eat foods that are rich in magnesium. These would include dark green leafy greens, nuts, bananas, whole grain foods, low-fat milk, yoghurt, and then anything in the legume family. Sometimes though, a good diet is actually not enough and this is why there are supplements, natural ones, for pretty much everything. Ask your doctor what they recommend you take, as they know your body better than you, and if you don’t have a doctor then chat to the local pharmacist or pop into a health store. You can also use the internet to research, just always be careful which sites you look at, and you can shop from a natural health store.

Magnesium for me is the kind of thing that I always have in the bathroom cabinet, for me and for my children. It is inexpensive and is always a good thing to have. If you are a sufferer of body cramps, try magnesium for muscle cramp and let us know how it works for you.
