What is Restless Leg Syndrome? (RLS)
Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is a common condition which causes pain and discomfort and prevents healthy sleeping patterns in sufferers. If you often feel an urge to move your legs when sitting or lying still for a long time, experience a “funny”, uncomfortable, creepy or itchy sensation in your legs when at rest or have ever woken yourself or your partner up during the night with jerking movements of your legs you may very well have Restless Leg Syndrome or RLS. These symptoms are usually most troublesome at night though they can also occur during long stretches of inactivity, such as car trips, airline travel, in meetings, or when watching movies. Voluntarily moving the legs usually brings temporary relief from the unpleasant sensations.
Periodic Limb Movement of Sleep (PLMS or PLM) is a similar condition, but occurs during sleep. People suffering from PLM are not always aware of their problem although it does sometimes wake them up. Often the problem is reported by their sleeping partner who is kept awake by the involuntary movements during sleep. While not all people with RLS experience PLM, many people will have both conditions, although RLS remains the most troublesome to the sufferer.
What causes RLS & PLM?
Although a single cause for Restless Leg Syndrome and Periodic Limb Movement has not been identified, these sleep disorders have been associated with several other conditions including pregnancy, obesity, neurological conditions, diabetes, ADHD, nutritional deficiency and kidney disease. People with these conditions are far more prone to RLS and PLM, though the symptoms often resolve when the underlying condition is properly treated or comes to a natural end.
Deficiencies of minerals, notably magnesium deficiency and iron deficiency anemia are also implicated in causing RLS and PLM. Environmental and other toxins including alcohol, cigarette smoke, caffeine and certain drugs like antihistamines, anti-nausea drugs, blood pressure medications and certain prescription antidepressants can also cause or worsen symptoms.
Because these conditions sometime run in families, researchers are currently investigating a genetic link as well.
The Natural Way: How can LegCalm help?
LegCalm is a 100% safe and effective natural remedy for treating Restless Leg Syndrome and Periodic Limb Movement. Presented in convenient capsule form, LegCalm contains a selected combination of herbal and homeopathic ingredients working together in synergistic fashion to relieve and prevent the symptoms of RLS and PLM. Regular use can help to support the nervous system and relieve the symptoms of these troublesome sleep disorders as well as address the underlying causes.
A diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables with protein derived mainly from white meat like fish and chicken is a heart friendly diet that will help to support healthy and efficient circulation throughout the body, including the legs. If you feel restless for fast food, high in fat, sugar, salt and synthetic ingredients, spare a thought for your heart before you give in! Drink plenty of water and avoid caffeinated drinks, alcohol and cigarettes. Putting your legs up now and then to relax is not a bad thing, but make sure to include regular exercise every day – even if it is just walking that extra block to work or taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Your legs will thank you for it if you rest less and walk more. Natural remedies can also be of great benefit in supporting healthy limbs and cardiovascular functioning without the risk of side effects or addiction.
LegCalm contains the following therapeutic herbal & homeopathic ingredients in a 100% vegan friendly vege-capsule.

- Mag phos (6C) is one of the 12 Biochemic Tissue Salts and is very useful in the treatment of spasms, muscle contractions and twitching and is an excellent aid in preventing involuntary limb movement. Mag. phos. also addresses deficiency of Magnesium which is known to be associated with Restless Leg Syndrome and Periodic Limb Movement.
How has LegCalm helped others?
'My husband has had PLM for years and although it doesn’t always bother him much, his jerking wakes me up a LOT. In the last several months his symptoms have deteriorated and he began having trouble sitting still even when watching TV for a short time. He felt uncomfortable and had difficulty relaxing. I found your natural remedy for restless legs on the web and suggested he give it a try. After just three days I slept through the night for the first time in ages and now, two weeks later, he has absolutely no trouble with restless legs. If I had known the solution to his problem would be so simple, safe and effective I would have bought LegCalm years ago!' - Lilian
'Your LegCalm Formula has really been a miracle for me - no more hideous, crawling feeling in my legs every time I lie down to go to sleep at night!!! I really didn’t know what to do with myself at night and I would twist and turn in bed and kick and shake my legs trying to get comfortable and relax enough to fall asleep. I was always tired in the mornings and often felt I couldn’t function 100% at work due to my sleep being so interrupted every night. LegCalm has changed all that and now I barely know myself - I sleep peacefully without restlessness at all and can sit still through an entire dinner party without having to get up constantly to relieve the funny feeling in my legs. I introduced people I know through an online RLS support group to your remedy and have had great feedback from those who have tried it! Thank you for a great product.' - Victoria
"This has helped me get a good nights sleep..." - Rudy
