Muscle cramps, muscle spasms, tics and twitches. All these are usually caused by imbalances and vitamin and mineral deficiencies. For all those dedicated to physical exercise and physical activity, know that there is a way to heal from these painful and debilitating challenges.
First, natural supplementation and a good, healthy, clean diet have always shown promise in strengthening the body against deficiencies.
So what actually causes these uncomfortable symptoms of muscle spasms, tics and twitches? A metabolic insufficiency of iodine, vitamins E, D, and B6, magnesium, calcium, trace minerals, potassium, and a lack of sufficient HCL in the stomach. Silicon and vitamin C deficiency causes poor collagen formation, which is vital to muscle elasticity. Some food allergies to colorants and preservatives may also be involved in muscle cramps and muscle spasms. Another factor is a side effect from taking certain high blood pressure medication. Some high blood pressure medications have sodium imbalance that upsets mineral salts in the body.
Leg cramps are painful, uncomfortable, uncontrollable spasms and twitches that usually occur at night as a result of poor circulation.
