Yes, it does. Contrary to the popular misconception that potato has only carbohydrates, this vegetable is rich in potassium, vitamin C, vitamin B6, and magnesium. Eating potato can ease leg cramps because of these nutrients:

·     Potassium. A low level of potassium in your body can cause leg cramps. Potato is very rich in this mineral and can help build your potassium levels.

·     Magnesium. This is believed to ease muscles. This mineral regulates about 300 enzyme systems, which solves different subtle health issues.

·     Vitamin B6. This is also necessary for enzyme function and can help prevent leg cramps.
