Paragon Vitamins metabolic testing & analysis can show you which vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients can provide relief for restless legs

It usually strikes in the middle of the night or while you're watching TV and trying to relax.  It's an irresistible need to stretch or move your legs, and there's no relief from the feeling until you do.  After you kick or shake out your legs, they are ok for a minute or two, and then the sensation strikes again.  Trying to get a proper night sleep with Restless Legs is next to impossible.

 

There are actually drugs prescribed that try to control Restless Leg Syndrome, but there are also effective & natural ways to safely manage help eliminate it altogether.

Paragon has been successfully helping doctors and our elite athletes address Restless Leg for years with our testing.  It is often caused by overwork of some kind... leading to potential deficiencies of iron (ferritin), Vitamin B6, magnesium, and /or tyrosine, which can lead to over contraction of muscles and erratic nervous system function. 

Restless leg is also often made worse by tight thigh muscles that need additional stretching (and magnesium and B6 to allow them to relax).  Pregnant women & people who exercise a lot often experience it.  Both regular exercise and growing a baby consume a lot of energy and nutrient, thereby consuming higher amounts of magnesium, iron, B6 & the other B vitamins, and often, tyrosine - necessary to support normal nervous system function & muscle firing. 

The premium nutrients in Paragon "Restless Leg Boost Packs" help address  potential deficiencies by providing the most bio-available and active nutrients: Carbonyl iron, vitamin B6 (as pyroxidine & P5P), the best magnesium available (as aspartate, malate, orotate and oxide), and tyrosine (which along with B6) supports dopamine synthesis and nervous system function.

If you don't supplement magnesium, you may benefit by reducing calcium-rich foods which can lead to calcium / magnesium imbalances & cause over-contraction and muscle spasms; decreasing refined sugars and alcohol - because they deplete the magnesium needed to prevent Restless Leg; stretches which focus on the legs: quads, gluts, hamstrings & calves; and managing stress levels through moderate exercise, yoga-style end-of-workout relaxation of muscles, and/or meditation. All of these are designed to help relax and release muscles and calm the nervous system which should also help turn off those restless legs and let you actually get some rest!
