Yes, it can. Chive belongs to the onion family, and a look at its nutrients will tell you that it can be immensely helpful in relieving leg cramps. The cramps occur due to sudden contraction of the leg muscles. This can be due to poor blood circulation and lack of certain minerals in the body. Chive can help you in the following way:

·     Potassium – A good level of this helps ease muscle contractions, and taking chive can help you maintain the potassium level.

·     Calcium – An important nutrient for the good functioning of muscles and nerves

·     Magnesium – Helps with regulating potassium levels and aids in absorption of calcium

All the above three factors can contribute towards relieving leg cramps. Here are some more natural remedies for leg cramps.
