Have any studies been done that link low magnesium levels in the blood and muscle stiffness or cramps. I notices when I upped my magnesium citrate intake, my muscle stiffness in the morning was minimized.
Hi, ! There's been a fair amount of research on the positive effects of magnesium on muscles/muscle cramps. Studies have shown that magnesium intake can definitely help with muscle cramps. Here's one piece from this site that discusses the benefits of magnesium (and other ways to help with muscle spasms) -- https://multiplesclerosis.net/living-with-ms/prevent-muscle-spasms.
