Q. Mustard works for leg cramps. But I really don't like mustard straight up, especially at night.
Turmeric is the "active" ingredient in mustard. When I get leg cramps, I mix 1/4 tsp turmeric in four ounces of water and drink it down. Leg cramps subside in about one minute or less, faster than mustard and a whole lot more palatable.
A. Thanks for the tip. Some may find the taste of pure turmeric even more challenging than mustard, though.
