LEG CRAMPS - CURES AND PREVENTION

Natural Ways to Cure and Prevent Leg Cramps - More Than Home Remedies

If you get a leg cramp (or charley horse), the quickest way to get rid of it is to walk on the leg. If the person can't get up and walk on the leg, either heat or ice along with massage will help. But, staying in bed and stretching the leg will sometimes help.

You can use a mixture of half apple cider vinegar and half water externally. Use the mixture to wet a towel, heat it in the microwave for 20 seconds (be careful it is not burning hot), and place it on the area that is cramping.

Drinking two ounces of natural apple cider vinegar has been reported to relieve involuntary muscle contractions or cramping in 35 seconds.

But, if you get leg cramps often, the best thing is to prevent them from happening in the first place.

Taking calcium and magnesium supplements (or calcium magnesium combination) and eating a banana daily prevent most leg cramps. If this alone does not do the trick, these will help increase circulation: Vitamin B Complex, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. And, zinc helps your body absorb the calcium and regulate the B vitamins.

Leg cramps caused by insufficient fluid intake are prevented by drinking about eight glasses of water each day. They can also be caused by some medications, such as statins.

Leg cramps that occur during or after vigorous exercise can be prevented by eating a few bites of something salty and drinking at least half a glass of water before, during and after exerting yourself.
