Leg cramps can be cause by dehydration...water provides a vehicle for nutrients called electrolytes. Electrolytes include minerals such as sodium, potassium and calcium. Water helps disseminate these minerals throughout the body and into blood, tissue and organs. It is necessary for lubricating joints. Thirst, dry mouth, dizziness, headache, muscle weakness and cramps are common for mild or moderate dehydration...
Eat foods rich in vitamin D tofor treat leg cramps. Vitamin D assists in bone health and joint pain.
Vitamin C supports the immune system, is good for the joints and your heart...Take Vitamin C to heal already damaged tissues, eat berries to reduce inflammation. Other foods to reduce inflammation are Green Peppers, Cucumber, Sweet Potatoes, Celery, Zucchini
Read Dr, Mark Hymans book "Ultra Metabolism" which is a wealth of knowledge...I bought it at Walmart online
