Yes, you can. Leg cramps are sudden involuntary contractions of the leg muscle. This can be caused by multiple medical conditions, including poor blood circulation and lack of certain minerals. Butternut squash has the following nutrients that help relieve leg cramps:

·     Potassium. Low levels of potassium can cause leg cramps, and this squash can supply enough potassium to bring your levels to normal.

·     Magnesium. This relaxes muscles and nerves. It also helps regulate over 300 enzyme systems in the body, thus curing several subtle health issues.

·     Vitamin E – This helps improve blood circulation and relieves leg cramps caused by poor circulation of blood.

Here are some butternut squash recipes that you can try.
