Whether it’s the excruciating pain of a charley horse or a dull, achy pain in your neck, nearly everyone has had or will experience a muscle cramp at some point. These sudden, involuntary muscle contractions usually only last a few seconds but some can last much longer, making them temporarily debilitating. Over-the- counter medications like acetaminophen, ibuprofen, and aspirin can help with this discomfort but unfortunately over time those drugs can have serious negative side effects. Some of those side effects include GI bleeding, ulcers, or liver problems.  Most people who suffer from chronic muscle cramps tend to use over-the- counter drugs daily to help them get through the day. For severe muscle spasms, muscle relaxants are prescribed. What you may not know is that muscle relaxants are total body relaxers meaning they don’t actually target the muscles. In turn, they have a sedative effect. The good news is that there are more natural solutions to be relieved from this type pain! For example, getting adjusted regularly and possibly supplementing in MyoCalm.

MyoCalm is an all natural muscle relaxant, manufactured by Metagenics, that is made with calcium and magnesium. The calcium and magnesium will relax muscle contractions and will induced relaxation.  Passionflower is another ingredient included which has an anti-inflammatory effect. Additionally, MyoCalm does not have a sedative effect so you can continue to do what you need to during the day.
