Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is a disorder of the nervous system which causes a very strong urge to move your legs. It can also be accompanied by pain, throbbing and other rather unpleasant symptoms. The symptoms of RLS often become much more noticeable when you are inactive like sitting or lying down. For obvious reasons, this makes sleeping incredibly difficult for those affected by this disorder. Unfortunately, this lack of proper sleep can lead to increased agitation and need for caffeine making RLS worse.
There is a lot of evidence that a lack of magnesium in the body is related to RLS. Taking a daily dose of magnesium can help you acheive better quality and quantity of sleep as well as reducing the symtpoms. When our bodies are stressed, calcium enters the cells and makes the muscles tense up. Magnesium’s job is to push that calcium back out of the cell so the muscles can relax. When we don’t have enough magnesium to push all the calcium out of our cells, our muscles stay tense much longer and this can lead to pain and/or restlessness.
Natural Vitality has produced a supplement named Natural Calm. This “anti-stress drink” works to balance the calcium and magnesium levels in our bodies reducing stress and letting us feel more relaxed. This drink doesn’t just work for those with RLS symptoms. Too much stress in our lives can lead to more severe diseases. Calm reduces the amount of damage being done by replenishing us with the electrolytes we need to return to a relaxed state quickly after a stressful situation.
Previous treatments for RLS have included muscle relaxers, opiods and sleep medications. All of these can be harmful and, as we all know, opiods can be highly addictive. Try a bottle of Calm and see the results for yourself.
