Twitching :: Health and Disease :: Brain and Spinal Cord

Twitching :: Health and Disease :: Brain and Spinal Cord: "Nutritional Supplements

Neuromuscular function and muscle control require the minerals magnesium, calcium and potassium. A deficiency could be causing tics, trembling or cramping. The B vitamins reduce stress-triggered trembling by calming the nervous system. Vitamin B12 is often poorly absorbed through the intestinal tract and should be taken in a sublingual form. Calcium is also important for muscle growth and contraction and for the prevention of muscle cramps.

Daily dosages:

* Calcium, 1,000 mg

* Magnesium, 500 mg

* Vitamin B complex, 50 mg three times daily

* Vitamin B12 sublingual tablet, 100 mcg"
