DON’T LET MUSCLE CRAMPS
CRAMP YOUR STYLE

Cramps occur when muscles are fatigued. The problem may be related to a nerve malfunction that prevents the muscle from retracting. Cramps are likely related to overexertion. Massage and stretching may be solutions. Other factors for muscle cramps may include inadequate conditioning, fluid loss and electrolyte imbalance. Be sure to drink enough fluids to keep hydrated throughout the day. Always drink enough fluids daily so that your urine is a clear pale straw color. Nutrition may be involved in muscles cramping.

Here are possible contributing factors:

Lack of calcium. Calcium plays an essential role in muscle contractions. Try to consume dairy products or other calcium sources (calcium fortified juice or non-dairy milk) at least twice a day.

Lack of potassium. Electrolyte imbalance, such as a potassium deficiency, may cause muscle cramps. Eat potassium-rich foods: fruits i.e. bananas, blueberries, cantaloupe, and orange juice. Vegetables i.e. white and sweet potatoes, asparagus, brussel sprouts, broccoli, spinach, kale.

Lack of sodium. Active people who restrict sodium intake during exercise may develop a sodium imbalance that could contribute to cramps especially if they are drinking lots of water without taking in sodium from food or drink. Sports drinks or salty foods may be needed.

Lack of magnesium. Magnesium is needed to relax muscles. It helps reduce leg cramps in the night. Rich sources include green leafy vegetables, whole grains, nuts, beans, legumes.

These tips may help with muscle cramps. Adding extra fluids, eating a well-balanced diet that includes low-fat dairy, potassium-rich fruits and vegetables and a sprinkling of salt may take care of the problem.


Please eat and drink responsibly
