Do Your Children Have Leg Cramps?
Vitamin D works by attracting calcium from the intestines and making sure it gets into your bloodstream. Vitamin F or polyunsaturated fatty acids do their job by taking the calcium and making sure it gets to the tissues. Do you have dry skin?
I mention vitamin D because many children suffer with leg cramps and growing pains. Most children really do not get enough calcium in their diets anyway-then they eat food that creates a loss of calcium, including soda, French fries, and chicken nuggets.
Leg cramps at night and severe, consistent, cramping in the legs should be a red flag that calcium metabolism is off. When you do not have enough calcium, you have a greater possibility to get the flu! More than four million children do not get enough Vitamin D. We can help, you’ll be glad you did!
