Muscle cramps, or spasms, are uncomfortable and involuntary muscle contrations. Muscle cramps can occur in any of our muscles, but are especially common in the extremities, such as the legs, calves or feet. A muscle spasm can last from seconds to minutes, or even longer. While muscle cramps are common and short-lived, they occasionally cause a great deal of discomfort and can interfere with sleep or daily activities

  • About the Ingredients

     

    Magnesium has been used in a number of different medical applications to relax muscles. For example, magnesium on its own and in combination with malic acid may improve the muscle pain of patients with fibromyalgia.(ii) Magnesium’s role in controlling muscle tone may help prevent menstrual cramps as well.(iii)

     

    Calcium deficiency may occur from insufficient dietary intake or vitamin D deficiency. Lack of this important nutrient can lead to muscle spasms, especially nocturnal leg cramps. While hypercalcemia (abnormally high levels of calcium in the blood) can cause leg cramps, hypocalcemia is a much more common cause of cramps.(iv) Calcium ions are relaxant to skeletal muscle, and are reduced by phosphates (such as those found in commercial soda). Pregnancy, lactation, and menopause are times when additional calcium fortification is especially important. Other populations that may need additional focus on calcium intake either via diet or nutritional supplementation include vegans and those with malabsorption diseases (Celiac, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, SIBO, etc.).

     

    Phenibut is also called 4-amino 3-phenylbutyric acid, a compound developed and researched in Russia. Phenibut is similar to the brain chemical GABA which is an inhibitory neurotransmitter with utility in reducing anxiety and promoting relaxation.(v)

     

    Chamomile flower has a long history of use by herbalists for reducing spasms, particularly those of smooth muscle, such as in intestinal colic.(vi) Chamomile is traditionally thought of as being relaxing and is classified by herbalists as an anti-anxiety and anti-inflammatory herb.

    Lemon balm (also called Melissa officinalis) has similar properties to chamomile: relaxing and soothing to the nervous system, along with relaxant properties in the intestinal tract.(vii)

     

    Passionflower is also known as Passiflora incarnate. This plant has been traditionally used as a pain reliever and anxiety reducer.* When combined with valerian, passionflower has been shown in research studies to help reduce symptoms of anxiety.(viii)
