Muscle cramps can be sudden and painful during performance exercise. Staying well-hydrated and stretching before performing endurance exercises can help prevent muscle cramps. Muscles contract when a nerve signal causes Calcium to enter the muscle cell. The muscle is poised to contract and the contraction happens suddenly. On the other hand, relaxation of the muscle requires energy. Magnesium, Glucose, and adequate blood flow are needed to deliver oxygen to the muscle cells to relax the muscle fibers that are contracted causing the cramp (see video). If you get a cramp, walk around, massage the muscle, and hydrate.


Low Magnesium and blood glucose as well as dehydration can lead to muscle cramps, so always drink 250 milliliters of a Sports Drink that has glucose and Magnesium every 15 to 20 minutes and take a sip whenever you are thirsty. Foods rich in magnesium include chocolate and green leafy vegetables. Maintain your body Magnesium as part of Balanced Nutrition for Optimum Performance!!
