If you get painful cramps in bed or after exercising then it could mean that you are lacking in magnesium.
Apparently dietary intakes are falling in the UK as we eat more processed food. Yet magnesium is essential for strong bones, teeth and muscles – plus it helps to regulate blood pressure and control blood sugar levels.
My twin started experiencing night cramps and her doctor suggested increasing her magnesium, so she ate a lot more bananas and spinach and it did the trick for her. You can also get magnesium from roasted pumpkin seeds, almonds, peanuts, Brazil nuts and sesame seeds as well as wholemeal bread, spinach, broccoli, bananas and brown rice.
