    Silver - here is what you need for your muscle cramps. You will have to read the whole thing to see which is right for you. Basically it will be one of Vitamin C, Lecithin, Magnesium, Vitamin E.

    ps: if you drink a lot one night and then get leg cramps it is always lecithin which helps the liver eliminate toxins.


    the search i did was: 'lecithin cramps'

    w w w.acu-cell.c o m/dis-mus.html

    Provided there are no neurological or neurodegenerative causes such as multiple sclerosis, cerebral
    palsy, stroke, or spinal cord injury - extra calcium is usually the solution for muscle spasms or muscle

    cramps in many nocturnal cases. The extra requirements for calcium may be a result of high protein or

    phosphate levels (kidney disease, poor diet), hormonal diseases or imbalances, nutritional imbalances

    (high Mg/Ca ratio, low pantothenic acid), celiac disease or other intestinal conditions that interfere with

    calcium absorption, prescribed medications that promote calcium loss, random self-supplementation

    of the wrong vitamins and minerals, and others. (see also Acu-Cell Nutrition "Calcium & Magnesium").



    When high calcium is suspected but no resources are available to measure cellular calcium levels

    (serum calcium cannot be used for that purpose), an acidifying approach may be tried such as taking a

    very large amount of Vitamin C for a few days. If the muscle spasms or cramps get worse, then at least
    one can assume that calcium was likely on the low side, and one needs to increase its dietary intake,

    and/or use calcium supplementation.

    If on the other hand the muscle cramps or spasms improve, then calcium is likely too high and requires

    co-factors to make it more bioavailable by supplementing either magnesium, or a phosphorus source

    such as lecithin, a higher daily intake of Vitamin C, or one could increase one's protein intake as
    another option.



    Consuming foods or beverages containing lactic acid is another acidifying strategy to reduce muscle

    cramps when working out, despite the buildup of lactic acid in muscle tissue during strenuous exercise
    being actually a common cause of muscle spasms or cramps. This happens from insufficient oxygen
    not being able to oxidize lactic acid, which would otherwise get rid of it from muscle. Inosine and
    creatin supplements also help to reduce the buildup of lactic acid in muscle.

    As exercise tolerance increases from repeated training, it takes increasingly longer before lactic acid

    is produced in muscle, so there is less of a chance of muscle cramps to develop. Lactic acid is found

    in a number of foods and beverages, and it is also commercially added to increase their acidity (olives,

    sauerkraut, cheese, beer, soft drinks, pickles...). Lactic acid-containing drinks can serve as a valuable

    fluid replacement for athletes before, during, and after competitive training and exercise.



    One-sided leg cramps or spasms can help with the decision of what to supplement, whereby the left
    side is usually indicative of calcium, while the right side is generally an indication of magnesium being

    needed, although some individuals require a calcium / magnesium combination for relief as a result

    of both being low. If right-sided muscle cramps respond to calcium (rather than to magnesium or other

    acidifying strategies), then dehydration is suspect, and extra sodium may be additionally required.



    Spasms or cramps in the toes can develop from a number of causes, including tight shoes, lack of

    circulation, and sitting in a particular position (car, plane, theater) for longer periods of time. Briefly
    exercising one's toes, or a short walk usually provides relief, however if nutritional imbalances are a

    contributing factor, then the sidedness may also provide a clue of which minerals may possibly be a
    factor, with the left side corresponding to an overly alkaline cellular environment (requiring an increase
    in phosphates or magnesium), and the right side corresponding to an overly acidic cellular environment
    (requiring more sodium or calcium). This is opposite from the mineral requirements involving left-sided

    or right-sided only muscle spasms or cramps in someone's calves for instance.



    If poor circulation causes muscle cramps, Vitamin E might be a good choice for its blood-thinning and

    vasodilating properties. Gingko biloba also provides a blood-thinning effect and may be considered.

    Sodium and/or potassium imbalances tend to become more of a problem during, or after physical
    activity, but less so during rest, so for exercise-induced leg cramps or muscle spasms, their addition

    in the form of a sports drink, or through extra Sodium / Potassium supplementation in tablet form may

    be a consideration. However, sufficient hydration (taking in enough fluid) is equally important before,

    during, and after a workout!

    I've never heard of "Keihan's "family" thread"? Is that a catagory on this site? I would love to share the pics.

    I'm hearing so many excuses and stories about "Hurricane Katrina". I'm from England and is shocked by the lack of help from the Gov'. I heard one reporter on Nancy Grace say, "It's like genocide in Africa". I would like to volunteer sometime...But find it hard to trust Red Cross. I heard that RD will be giving the money, dontated, to servicemen, and the rebuilding of the pipelines for oil not to New Orleans residents or for their benefits..etc..
    It sounds like a man made disaster, folks knew about it since the 90s. And how can water travel uphill?
