If you have ever experienced muscle cramping, you know they can be very uncomfortable and painful. It doesn’t last long but the brief time that they do last is long enough!
Research studies have shown that these cramps are correlated to several factors, but one of the most common being dehydration and electrolyte imbalances. Specific electrolytes such as potassium, sodium and magnesium have all been shown to prevent muscle cramps.
Sodium helps to transmit nerve impulses throughout your body and helps muscles contract and relax. Sodium and potassium together help regulate muscle and nerve function. The two along with calcium, chloride, phosphate, and magnesium are known as electrolytes and they help support fluid balance (electrolyte balance) in your cells.
The frequency and degree to which your muscles contract depends heavily on having the right amount of potassium in the body as well. When you don’t get enough potassium in your diet, or when the movement of potassium through the body is blocked, your nervous and muscular systems can become compromised. Low potassium levels can also reduce your energy and endurance. If you experience muscle spasms, or cramping it’s usually your body telling you you’re low on potassium, and it’s time to get your levels up!
