Why take Recovery e21 for leg cramps?

Leg cramps are usually caused by an electrolyte deficiency. Recovery e21 is the only product that provides an absolute range of electrolytes in adequate quantities of key cramp prevention elements in just one capsule.

Recovery e21 is organic, natural, bio-available and affordable. It delivers electrolytes in the right ratio and balance to ensure your body has the full complement of necessary electrolytes to prevent leg cramps.

Because its 114 elements are derived from a natural, single cell marine algae these elements are totally bio-available to your body when it needs them.

By comparison, synthetic electrolyte products require the body to break through the synthetic chain they create before the body can access them.

Often these synthetic compositions are often excreted before your body can use them.

Supplement Facts


Magnesium plays a significant role in the biochemical processes of the body, including muscle function and relaxation, cardiovascular function and production and flow of energy.

In addition to Magnesium’s role in many biochemical processes of the body, it also helps to conduct nerve impulses throughout the body to prevent feelings of fatigue. Recovery e21 contains approximately 15% of the recommended daily intake of Magnesium.


Sodium is essential for healthy acid-base balance in the cells of the body and for muscle contraction.


It is the most abundant electrolyte outside of the cell and also helps in preserving a healthy acid-base balance. It is essential for the efficient exchange of oxygen in the cells.


Calcium also plays a role in many of the body processes. It plays a critical role in nerve transmission, heart function, blood-pressure regulation and blood clotting.


Potassium is essential for muscle contraction (especially the heart muscle) and helps to support cardiovascular function. It is also the electrolyte which helps maintain water and acid-base.


“As soon as I saw Recovery e21 was natural and organic I decided to try it. I’m very careful about what I put into my body as I want to live independently for as long as possible in my own home. The good news is that I am now ahead on two counts, immediately. Firstly I have not had a foot cramp since the first day I took e21 and secondly, I’m glad that I’m not putting synthetic rubbish into my body in the vain attempt to prevent my cramps”

How can I prevent leg cramps?

Take Recovery e21 every day to supplement the electrolytes and minerals you lose through normal exercise and natural aging.

The truth is that you’re likely to run out of magnesium before any other electrolyte. In the United States most people just don’t eat enough natural foods containing magnesium such as nuts, pearl barley, spinach, oat-bran, pumpkin seeds and soya beans.

Compounding this problem is the consumption of alcohol and certain medications that flush magnesium from the body.

Magnesium is normally stored in muscle and bone and when required acts like a key that unlocks muscle cells, allowing potassium and calcium to move in and out as muscles need it.

Recovery e21 will prevent cramping because its organic magnesium is combined with a full spectrum of natural salts and minerals including organic potassium and this will relax the muscles.


“Yes John, I did receive the e21 sample.  It should be e21 100 because it did 100% of what you said it would. Most of the time after a hard days work and then coming home, running and doing my workouts plus training, my legs lock up.

Well last night after my workouts I could feel my cramps coming on and I was sore so I said well, this would be a good time to test e21 out… and it came through 100%.  I got a good nights rest and today I feel good, not sore and my legs feel great also.  Thank you.”

Why is Magnesium important in preventing cramps?

Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body and is essential to good health. Approximately 50% of total body magnesium is found in bone. The other half is found predominantly inside cells of body tissues and organs. Only 1% of magnesium is found in blood, but the body works very hard to keep blood levels of magnesium constant.

Magnesium is the key element to prevent cramping. One serve of Recovery e21 contains approximately 15% of the recommended daily intake of Magnesium. Magnesium is the key that unlocks the potassium in your body that allows the muscle to relax.

Cramping and electrolytes

Electrolyte is a scientific term for salts, specifically ions. The term electrolyte means that an ion is electrically-charged. The most well known electrolyte is sodium but it works in balance with other electrolytes being magnesium, calcium, potassium and chloride to maintain homeostasis.

Since many of the tissues in the human body require electricity to function, it stands to reason that the passage of these positive or negatively charged ions between the intracellular and extracellular fluids provide the charge required. Without the correct or adequate levels of a particular electrolyte, or indeed, a particular polarity, the tissues that rely on this transfer of energy to function correctly do not receive the power or energy they need, and they cannot function at their peak.

Humans need a wide range of different electrolytes in their bodies, as each is used for a specific purpose. For instance, sodium, potassium and calcium, are required for muscle contraction. Magnesium is needed for muscular relaxation. If there are insufficient levels of these flowing through the ionic channels in the cells, muscle contraction and relaxation will be poor and imbalanced which will lead to muscular cramping, fatigue and poor performance.

Recovery e21 will assist people suffering from these symptoms.

Recovery e21 contains a full spectrum of trace minerals – all natural and in balance

Recovery e21 is also a substantial source of the essential trace nutrients required for optimal cellular function. The pie chart shows the number of trace minerals unique to Recovery e21.

What lifestyle factors can affect leg cramps?

  • Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water every day
  • ensure you are receiving plenty of potassium and magnesium by eating a well-balanced diet
  • Fruits such as bananas, dried apricots and raisins contain high amounts of potassium
  • Nuts and soya beans are good sources of magnesium
  • Limit your intake of alcohol, tea and coffee
  • Limit your intake of sugar and fats
  • Seek balance in all things
  • Laugh a lot
  • Stretch before and after exercise is important.
  • Yoga and regular massage can help to keep muscles relaxed

Recovery e21 contains antioxidants as an added bonus

Beta-carotene is a pigment found naturally in foods and all living things. It is an antioxidant and protects the cells against oxidative stress.

Studies have shown that exercise increases oxidative stress and results in increased inflammation, muscle soreness and reduced post-exercise recovery. However, the good news is that supplementation with Beta-carotene along with other antioxidants has been shown to help maintain higher work outputs before fatiguing levels of lactate set in.

Recovery e21 is extracted from a living cell that contains some of the highest known levels of Beta-carotene. Each serving of Recovery e21 will provide you with 30mg of bio-available antioxidant protection to maximize your performance and enhance the functioning of your immune system.

Why do people get leg cramps?

There are different kinds of cramp that people suffer from such as night cramps, nocturnal cramps, athletic cramps, irregular cramps and heat cramps.

Cramps can be caused by a variety of factors such as:

  • Poor hydration techniques
  • Loss of electrolytes through sweating
  • Hard workouts and training
  • Hard physical outside work
  • Diuretic effect from coffee and alcohol
  • Living and working in a hot climate
  • Medical conditions including diabetes, poor circulation, hormonal imbalance and pregnancy
  • Or if you are an older person who may be experiencing leg cramps when taking certain drugs that depletes your body’s potassium and magnesium minerals.
