We’ve all had those famous nightly charley horses that come on suddenly and make us cringe with pain. What causes these nightly leg cramps? The most common problem is a mineral deficiency in magnesium and/or calcium. Magnesium is very important in regulating the muscle’s ability to contract and relax. Calcium is well known for its ability to maintain strong bones, but it is also needed for the function of muscle cells. Having a deficiency in one or both will make you susceptible to nightly leg cramps! The adult RDA (recommended daily allowance) for magnesium is 270-400mg per day and for calcium it is 1000mg per day. 
If you suffer from nightly leg cramps try some magnesium supplements to help relax those muscles and get some good sleep!
