The real reason that could be behind night-time leg cramps
“Hypochlorhydria is a condition that occurs when your stomach isn’t producing enough acid to breakdown foods properly and for the absorption of minerals and nutrients from food.
It’s this sub-optimal stomach acid production that could be causing your unexplained night-time leg cramps. And the older you are, the more likely you are to experience it.
While sub-optimal stomach acid production can be due to many causes like, severe food allergy, viral infection, over indulgence in alcohol and auto-immune disease, it’s also an inevitable result of getting older.
In the 1930s, researchers at the Mayo Clinic did gastric analysis by intubation for individuals at every decade of age (except for children and those over 90).
They reported that, while teenagers rarely, if ever, have sub-optimal stomach acid production, by the time you’re 60, you have a 50/50 chance of having developed this problem.
And since sub-optimal stomach acid can lead to reduced absorption of over 20 essential nutrients including amino acids, vitamin B12 and folate, it’s best to check with your doctor so he can test your stomach acid production.
If sub-optimal stomach acid is your problem, you could literally add years of better health to your life by solving this problem.
