Inflammatory Bowel : There are many reasons for irritable bowel disorders. A systematic approach to discovering underlying conditions such as candida, pathologic bacteria and parasites, low serotonin levels and altered thyroid hormones may all contribute. Wheat consumption may actually harm the lining to the intestinal tract. I believe you need a comprehensive evaluation to discover your underlying issues.

Yes!: There can be muscle damage after a muscle cramp. Magnesium helps prevent muscle spasms and cramps if taken daily.

Prevention-Magnesium: Leg cramps are usually due to a magnesium deficiency. I would suggest 400 mg of either magnesium aspartate, magnesium citrate, magnesium glycinate, magnesium maleate or magnesium taurate to relieve this problem. Do not waste your time with other forms of magnesium. These are available over the counter. If you take too much magnesium, you will get diarrhea.
