I see leg cramps or "charlie horses" respond quickly to supplementation of calcium magnesium. That's about as simple as I can say it. The complex issue for most people is which supplement or which brand to take to stop the night time cramping. I can get confused myself, and so I use the one referenced below because I have seen it work effectively time and again on countless patients.

Before you think I am fully endorsing Douglas Brands, I should tell you that I am not recommending their other calcium supplements (though many may be fine). I can say that I have switched to other brands or supplements due to various reasons, and my patient's cramping did return. So the lesson seems to be that even vitamin pills within the same manufacturer products may be created with inequal quality. Click on calcium magnesium for one that works for sure.
