How are Digestion and Muscle Cramps Related?

Inefficient digestion - marked by things like gas, bloating, reflux, and even food in the stool - can often mean that digestion isn't working as efficiently as it should. Symptoms like these mean stomach acid is too low, and without enough acid it's tough to absorb minerals (electrolytes) for proper muscle function, and you can wind up with muscle cramps.

The fix isn't more pickle juice for your cramps!

Rather, by  improving digestion using digestive enzymes, you can increase stomach acidity, absorb those electrolytes, and put an end to muscle cramps!

Hi Rommel – I’ve not heard of anyone having fatigue and twitching after taking digestive enzymes. You might be sensitive to something in the formulation – probably a good idea to change what you’re taking and try something different.

after taking digestive enzyme, is it normal to feel tired and experience muscle twitching?
