Is magnesium a contributor to muscle cramps in the legs and back?

A: muscles need three minerals to work efficiently, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. If any one of these things becomes unbalanced, you may experience muscle aches, pains, or cramping. Normally stored in muscle and bone, magnesium acts like a key that unlocks muscle cells, allowing potassium and calcium to move in and out when needed as a muscle does its job.
