For the last few years, I'd experienced occasional nightly foot and leg cramps, but in the last few months they had escalated in both frequency and intensity to the point that I was often having to get up and walk around in the middle of the night to relieve them.
I did some research online and found conflicting advice as to how to alleviate these painful muscle cramps, but most indicated that some sort of nutritional deficiency was the cause, so I contacted my friend Julie James, a master herbalist and repository of nutritional wisdom. She suggested that lack of magnesium was the most likely culprit and recommended Ionic Fizz Magnesium Plus. She said that this form of magnesium is the most easily absorbed and easy to digest.
She was right. The very first night I tried this I had no leg cramps and have not experienced any since. The Ionic Fizz powder is dissolved in a small glass of water, and the flavor (raspberry lemonade, sugar free) is inoffensive. I usually take a dose in the early evening.
If you've been experiencing nightly foot and/or leg cramps, you might want to give this a try.
