9 Comments for the Restless Leg Syndrome Home Remedy

I found that a glass of orange juice gets rid of my restless legs. There is a large amount of potassium in orange juice. Potassium assists in muscle contraction and in maintaining fluid (water) and electrolyte balance in body cells. Potassium is also important in sending nerve impulses as well as releasing energy from protein, fat, and carbohydrates during metabolism.

Basically your body is starving for potassium so your muscles can work properly. When you run low on potassium you get restless legs.

I regularly eat bananas and when my blood is tested my potasium is always near the top of the range, but I still have RLS so I am loooking for other causes.

I heard you'd have to eat a banana 10 stories high to get the daily amount of potassium needed for the body. I've suffered from RLS for years Sinement, Requip and now I'm on Mirapex and it seems to be the best for me and with no side effects...

I have an old memory of potassium deficiency being a factor so will definitely try orange juice and the occasional banana. Thank you.

I'm pregnant and on a prenatal vitamin, drinking lots of water, and eating tums and I still suffer from RLS. I have enough potassium intake I'm still looking for solutions.
