Let’s talk about foot and leg cramps at night, also known as nocturnal cramps. Nocturnal cramps can be very painful and even prevent you from sleeping.

Unfortunately, the cause of nocturnal cramps is unknown. But, a potential cause could be an electrolyte imbalance—a deficiency in electrolytes, such as magnesium, calcium, potassium, or sodium. But, sometimes, people will take electrolytes without noticing much of a difference.

Another potential cause could be a problem with your pH. If your body is too alkaline, you won’t be able to transport minerals properly. This can create a lot of different problems, including cramping. In this case, you could try just acidifying the body.

Potential remedies for leg and foot cramps at night:
1. Quinine (the natural version: cinchona officinalis, or tonic water)

2. Yellow mustard (1 tbsp. before bed)

3. Apple cider vinegar (2 tbsp. mixed in water about an hour before bed)
