Definitely - magnesium is a muscle relaxant (as well as being responsible for over 300 enzymes in the human body). It has a particularly beneficial effect on enhancing sleep, hydration and muscle relaxation. If the spasms/pains do not improve after the use of 400mg/day for a week, you can safely conclude they were not caused by magnesium deficiency. However, deficiency of this mineral is surprisingly common.
