Nutrition plays the key role in all our bodily processes. The lack or excess of it contributes to the problem. In toe or leg cramps the culprit is the lack of calcium, potassium and sodium in your body. Ninety-nine percent of calcium can be located in bones and teeth. The smaller portion of calcium can be found in the blood, which helps in muscle contraction. Low level of potassium and sodium accompanied by excessive dehydration stimulates muscle cramps.
Dietary sources of calcium include milk and dairy products, broccoli, and sardines. Banana, avocado, and green leafy vegetables are richest sources of potassium. Sodium is widely distributed in most of the fruits and vegetables we eat.
