Cramps in general are caused from the muscle in that particular area becoming contracted and unable to release and relax. This can cause immense, intense pain and will more often involve older people but not necessarily. It can last from one minute to several minutes which can be excruciating. Basically is happens because you have a digestive imbalance of some kind, your body is not getting the right amount of a particular nutrient. Magnesium is more than likely the main culprit. The majority of supplements are constructed in some lab. However, we as humans should, in theory, get all our much needed nutrients from the food. In the real world, the so called natural food is deficient in some nutrients because of how the industry is more into the amount rather than the excellence and quality of their product. Processed food is a classic case of being nutrient deficient. Sometimes the cramps are caused because your body cannot absorb the magnesium rather than not getting enough of it. If this is the reason then a re- balance is in order by taking a homeopathic approach.
