What we think
Are muscle cramps and spasms slowing you down and keeping you up at night? If so, we can help...
You've just finished a tough workout and you're glowing from the rush of endorphins. You pat yourself on the back, thinking I'm a beast- when suddenly your calf muscle contracts sharply. You look down and see what looks like bugs writhing and wriggling under your skin. Your muscles are going haywire! You try to stretch it out, rub it out, walk it out... ANYTHING it out. But, the spasms get worse. You hobble home, praying the cramping will go away and not pop up again later. The last thing you want is to be up all night with twitchy legs.
Has anything like this ever happened to you?
If you're an endurance athlete, you've probably experienced bouts of muscle cramping and spasms ranging from annoying to painful that often strike immediately after your workout (even worse, before you're finished!) and can keep you up all night long.
Why NSAIDS are not the answer...
Unfortunately, many athletes resort to popping ibuprofen, aspirin or other NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) or even prescription muscle relaxants in order to alleviate the pain and cramping. These meds are generally not a great solution, especially for endurance athletes, as they can lead to GI issues like leaky gut and even GI bleeding (which could then contribute to anemia), rare but potential liver toxicity, cell tissue damage and, perhaps the most alarming is hyponatremia (low sodium concentration in your blood). Prescription muscle relaxers have side effects like drowsiness and dizziness and can be habit forming.
BUT, the good news is that there IS something you can take that's very effective at relaxing your muscles and alleviating cramping by working with your body's natural processes (not AGAINST them) AND it also has no dangerous side effects. In fact, it has the added benefit of easing anxiety AND helping you get a better night's sleep...

What causes muscle cramping?
Exercise-induced muscle cramping can be caused by dehydration, especially a depletion in electrolytes like magnesium. The other cause for cramping and spams is triggered by muscle overload and fatigue (i.e. training hard).
In a nutshell, after you've pushed your muscles to the limit, the part of your neuromuscular system that signals contractions can go into hyper mode while the part of your neuromuscular system that stops contractions goes on pause 🙄, which results in haywire signaling and bombards your muscles with the message to contract, contract, contract... while the signal to tell them to relax has been temporarily impaired
How can I prevent/stop muscle cramping?
The first and most important thing to do to prevent cramping post (and during) exercise is to stay hydrated. We recommend using an electrolyte-rich hydration mix like Skratch (our fav!) during your training.
The next step to address cramping and spasms is to halt the screwy messaging that's telling your muscles to contract with no counter-messaging to tell them to stop. This is where SwissRX Muscle Relaxation comes in.
What makes SwissRX Muscle Relaxation special?
This unique formula features gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and glycine, (which are shown to dampen the neuron activity in the brain and central nervous system) PLUS a potent blend of established traditional botanicals and magnesium that work together to serve as a quick response supplement for muscle relaxation and relief of cramping and spasms
GABA is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain and regulates other neurotransmissions to prevent overstimulation. It has a calming effect on haywire signaling, resulting in reduced cramping and spasming.
Glycine is one of three amino acids needed for the synthesis of creatine, which supplies energy to nerve and muscle cells. Elevated amounts of glycine are found in the muscles, skin and other connective tissues. Glycine is also an inhibitory neurotransmitter, which works much like GABA.
Cramp bark powder has long been used to alleviate smooth muscle discomfort. Studies have confirmed that cramp bark promotes a relaxant effect.
Dong Quai is a perennial botanical native to China and Japan, Dong Quai is effective at easing post-exercise muscle soreness, and has long been used medicinally for smooth muscle tension.
Vitamin B6 is required to convert glutamic acid to GABA in the body. Vitamin B6 is also a cofactor in many cellular biochemical reactions, including the release of glucose from glycogen and that of amino acid metabolism, including transamination, deamination and decarboxylation.
Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body and participates in about 300-350 enzymatic reactions in nearly all tissues. Deficiency is common and results from poor dietary intake, poor absorption and excessive losses through urine, stool and perspiration. Magnesium is very important for regulating the influx of calcium into the muscle cells. When magnesium is depleted, calcium can remain in the muscle cell area longer, causing muscles to cramp.
How We Take It:
1-2 capsules three times per day or as recommended by your health care professional.
The SwissRX Story
We set out to find a supplement company we could trust for the world's top endurance athletes: a company that has the same obsession with quality and performance as our athletes do. Our quest led us to SwissRX. SwissRX takes a "spare-no-expense" approach to procuring the highest quality Pharmaceutical Grade Ingredients. Only 3% of supplement companies go through the rigorous testing required for pharmaceutical grade labeling, SwissRX happens to be one of them. But they don't stop there; whenever possible, they use the exact ingredients used in medical studies, the same ones that many other companies point to in research, but don't use due to their price. We love SwissRX because our athletes can rest assured knowing that they are getting the identical ingredients that were proven to be effective in previous studies.
Simply stated, SwissRX products work better because they contain better ingredients.
