Have you ever experienced the sudden, painful seizing of a leg cramp? The pain can range from anywhere between seconds to a few minutes, and the onset is typically rapid, and can happen during exercise, sleep or at rest. Although a cramp can come and go, they are normally an indication that there is a larger imbalance happening within your body. One of the main reasons for the same is deficiency in Magnesium

Fast&Up Leg Cramps

Magnesium deficiency

Magnesium deficiency is the first and primary reasons which can cause cramps in an individual’s body. While on side, calcium works to contract muscle fibers with the muscle cells, magnesium on the other hand triggers them to ease down. If an individual does not have sufficient magnesium, the muscles contract but struggle post relaxation. This prolonged contraction then acts as the stabbing and intense experience known as a muscle cramp.

Magnesium is the fourth most abundant essential mineral in the body. It plays an important role in activation of over 300 different enzymes in the body and is crucial in metabolism, hormonal reactions and muscle contraction. More than half of the Magnesium in the body is distributed between muscles and soft tissues. Which implies the other 50% of Magnesium is stored in the bones and very minimal amount is in the blood. Hence Magnesium deficiency sometimes get difficult to detect in a blood test. In skeletal muscle, Magnesium plays a vital role in relaxation. So when there is a deficiency the muscle will not be able to relax causing a cramp

There are also a number of cases where a change in an individual’s lifestyle and environment can also cause a deficiency, or increase your body’s demand for magnesium. Due to the fast lifestyle of many, the magnesium intake in an individual’s has noticeably been low. Instead of consuming magnesium rich foods like wholefoods people are opting for refine and processed foods. Apart from Wholesome food, you can get in abundance from green leafy vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds, and whole grains. Magnesium supplementation is also highly recommended as it has been proven to improve muscle relaxation.
