Case Study: Muscle Cramps in an Elite AthleteAn athlete who cramped up severely each night after every performance tried every conceivable form of calcium, magnesium, potassium, and more to no avail. He still found himself tied into agonizing knots after an athletic performance. Enter the use of therapeutic supplements. This athlete needed an omega-3 supplement, an iodine-rich fuel for his thyroid and a liver extract to power-up his thyroid and hormones. These nutrients allowed his body to deliver the minerals to his muscles. This eliminated the severe cramping he had been experiencing and he was even able to train harder. Instead of hit-or-miss calcium supplements, he now includes therapeutic nutrients to balance his biochemistry.
