“Last summer I woke up about 5 days in a row with charlie-horses. I went to my physiotherapist who alleviated the problem with massage and he recommended a magnesium supplement. I had tried magnesium supplements before my bowels can’t tolerate magnesium orally. The assistant at the health food store recommended a topical supplement and I found Bolton’s Magnesium Chloride Balm. I rubbed it on my lower legs 3 times the first day, 2 times a day the next couple of days, and once a day for about a week. I was without cramps for several weeks.
The cramps did come back a couple of months later so I started the course of magnesium balm again and I now find that if I use it 2 or 3 times a week I have no recurrence. When I feel any tightness in my lower legs I rub the magnesium balm into them and I’m cramp-free.
I was talking about charlie-horses to a couple of ladies in my fitness class a few months back and mentioned I had found an easy and natural way to deal with them. One lady said she suffers terribly, and nightly, with leg cramps but she cannot take oral magnesium supplements. I explained to her that because topical magnesium supplements go nowhere the gut, they do not cause diarrhea. I gave her a small amount from my jar and she tried it. It not only did not affect her bowels, but it also cured the charlie-horses and her nightly suffering.
Next jar I’m going to try the Lavender Magnesium Chloride Balm as I am a lover of lavender.”
