== == Leg cramps may be a sign that you are not eating enough of a certain mineral. Ask your Doctor about this problem. This is generally indicative of a lack of calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), or potassium (K) in the diet. You can distract these electrolytes best from whole foods/vegetables, rather than trying to get them from synthetic, isolated vitamins. Also, watch the amount of sugars in your diet, especially simple sugars/junk food. This junk keeps your body's insulin levels very high. A prolonged internal environment such as this causes insulin resistance. If your body starts becoming resistant to insulin, it loses the ability to store both calcium and magnesium. (It is a little known fact that insulin not only moves glucose into cells, but it is an anabolic hormone which stores Ca and Mg.)
