    Default Anyone tried magnesium for muscle cramps?

    Does it actually work?

    Yep, I find it works. I take calcium and magnesium. It may not stop the cramps, but it does help, in my experience

    IMO yes it is fantastic. I take Blackmores Bio Magensium for twitches more so than cramps and it really makes a difference. I also took it while I was breastfeeding and had vasospams and it made a massive difference.

    Yes it's not instant, it has to build up in your system over 3-4 wks, that's when I started seeing consistent results. I take it for RSL.

    I used to take it after a hard gym session, it made my muscles hurt/cramp less. I found the powder really good

    You can also get it by having a bath in epsom salts. Apparently the body absorbs the magnesium better through the skin.

    Yes, I am on both the blackmores magnesium and caltrate calcium tablets. Still get some cramps but no where near as many as I was. And im only 24weeks.
    You have nothing to lose from trying it.
