NutriJuice Max: Muscle Cramps

Updated: Jun 3, 2020

Muscle cramps are painful, involuntary contractions caused by an imbalance of electrolytes (sodium, potassium, calcium, or magnesium), lack of water, or insufficient blood flow to the muscle. Cramps can be triggered by over exercise, very cold temperatures, dehydration, or any muscle irritation that causes pain. The pain impulse travels to the spinal cord, which responds by sending back impulses that create more pain, setting up a vicious cycle.

Beneficial Juices

  • Celery, carrot, and beet green – good sources of sodium.

  • Swiss chard, kale, and carrot – good sources of potassium.

  • Kale, collard green, and watercress – good sources of calcium.

  • Collard greens and parsley – sources of magnesium.

  • Asparagus, carrot, and spinach – sources of vitamin E.

  • Red pepper, kale, and collard greens – sources of vitamin C.

NutriJuice Max suggested juicing recipes for preventing muscle cramps:
