Nicotinic acid + Mg: Niacin as nicotinic acid will help release the cramps. Muscle also gets depleted of minerals - magnesium, calcium, potassium. So take nicotinic acid start small and build up dosage range 50mg -max dose 5000mg for Niacin detox watch my video on how to do this @ http://drbrown.Tv minerals comes as cmp over the counter and use this until cramp relieved.

Strange question: Your skin tans when UVA and UVB wavelengths of light react with melanin released from basal melanocytes in the epidermis. A chemical reaction and energy release involving melanin results in darkening of the skin pigmentation. The only thing that is going to result in resolution of a tan is tincture of time. You just have to wait. Next time stay out of the sun or wear sun block.
