Last year I started getting leg cramps every morning when I woke up and also sometimes when I drive. My fitness instructor said I needed to stretch better, but that did not help at all. I then did some research and calculations to find out that I was deficient in Magnesium. Being the health freak I am, I decided to go the natural route and eat almonds since they have 20% Magnesium. Love eating them plain as they are.
