Home remedies for leg cramps

Post  forumtester on Mon Mar 26, 2018 3:45 pm

One of the most common causes of leg cramps is a lack of potassium in your body’s system. To add this beneficial electrolyte to your body, you can take a supplement. Or you can add plenty of potassium-rich bananas, apricots, tomatoes and raisins to your daily diet. Potassium is also good for your heart. One homemade remedy for leg cramps is to drink an Apple Cider Vinegar Cocktail. Mix up two teaspoons of vinegar in a small glass of water; stir in a teaspoon of honey and drink it down. The Apple Cider Vinegar is full of potassium, and beneficial vitamins and minerals to help ease your leg pains. Or you can rub your leg muscles with undiluted Apple Cider Vinegar instead.

Make sure that you drink plenty of water every day to keep your body properly hydrated.

Take a hot shower before you turn you go to bed to help loosen tight muscles. Better still, take a hot bath soaking your legs for several minutes; then gently massage your legs with your fingers to further relax the muscles and increase blood circulation.

Once you get a muscle contraction you need to exercise to stretch it away. Performing some simple exercises can also help keep your legs from cramping up either in the daytime or nighttime. To loosen the muscles in your legs stand up and push your left leg behind you as far as you can reach. Bend your foot so your toes are pointed behind you. Hold this position to the count of twenty. Then, move your foot back and forth several times. Now, move your left leg in front of you as far as possible; repeat the process. Do this five times, then change legs and repeat the entire process.

Another homemade remedy for leg cramps is to drink two or three cups of chamomile tea every day. Chamomile contains an amino acid called Glycine. Glycine is known for its calming effects on the nervous system, as well as on the muscles in your body.
