Magnesium is an essential mineral that plays a major role in the functioning of the musculoskeletal system. When there is too much calcium and insufficient magnesium inside a cell, you can get frequent muscle contraction resulting in pain, twitches and spasms.
That is why Magnesium is great for RLS, as it helps with inflammations of the nerves, muscles and blood vessels. Magnesium deficiencies feed the fires of inflammation and pain in the legs and that is why applying magnesium directly to your legs at night works well to calm the restlessness. It assists not only your legs but the entire nervous system, by helping to relax you and reset your nervous system to a less anxious tone.
