I wrote a Blog the other day about suddenly realising my cramp had gone completely and I could stretch to my hearts content quite safely. I was sure it was Vit D which had done the trick but MARZ gave me a link to a site which suggested:
If you are taking Vitamin D, it's important that you understand the Magnesium and Vitamin D connection in order to avoid vitamin d side effects and to maximize absorption. Nutrients don't work alone, and when it comes to taking vitamin d, it's important that you take magnesium and vitamin d together and not JUST vitamin d alone in large doses as this can lead to what people BELIEVE are vitamin d side effects, but are really just magnesium deficiency symptoms that have been induced because of how vitamin d 'uses up' magnesium in its conversion to its 'active form' in the bloodstream from supplements and sunlight.

I am in the throes of sticking to my YorkTest diet which means for me...no gluten,wheat,yeast,egg and a few other things. This makes life difficult to say the least and I have been eating my home-made Hummus at almost every meal, and always as a snack. Hummus is made mainly from chickpeas and chickpeas are STACKED with magnesium.
So is it the two together that is taking my cramp away? I have been on the Vit D some months and the Hummus for about a month and the cramp has stopped in about the last month soooooooooo it is likely to be the two together. I'm not stopping either to find out! if anyone has a similar experince I would love to hear from them.
Thank you MARZ for pointing me in the right direction.
