It depends on what is causing them.  Low potassium, for example, if you have that, eating foods rich in potassium, such as sweet potatoes, bananas, etc. would be good.  If you have cramps because you are taking a statin drug for lowering your cholesterol, you might talk to your doctor about switching to a different medication that is less likely to give that as a side effect.  Also, co-enzyme Q-10 is supposed to be good to take at the same time you take one of those medications to try to help with the muscles.  If you are having muscle cramps in a malaise sort of way, suffering from a virus, treatment would be rest, plenty of fluids, and taking ester-C vitamin and zinc to help boost your immunity, etc.  It depends on the cause.

In general the primary cause of such cause is low calcium, secondary to low levels of D3. A glass or two of milk and 1000 IU of D3 should solve the problem. A long-time treatment if quinine sulfate, which was sold over the counter for a hundred and fifty years for cramps in the U.S. until the FDA made it prescription about four years ago.
