Vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin, is produced by the body when sunlight strikes the skin. Sufficient amounts can help tame muscle spasms. While sunscreen is necessary to protect the skin from cancer, it also blocks the skin from the sun, preventing it from producing vitamin D to help the spasms. It may be easier to take a daily supplement of vitamin D3. Check your doctor on the dosage amount.
