FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions – How to Fix Muscle Cramps using CrampFix

What is in CrampFix™?

CrampFix™ is a supplementary sports food that includes a proprietary formula which helps high performing sports people to achieve their performance goals.

The all natural, vegan formula has a specific blend of astringency and pH level that provides reliable and rapid relief from muscle cramps by quenching neuro muscular fatigue.

Ingredients: water, vinegar, sugar, salt, potassium, calcium, magnesium & natural flavour.

Why does CrampFix™ have a strong taste?

One of the ingredients is acetate (vinegar) which has a very strong and dominating taste. Most athletes do get used to the taste after using the product a few times.

How is CrampFix™ different from other muscle cramp products?

CrampFix™ treats cramps rapidly through the nervous system, rather than by treating the actual muscle itself. The unique CrampFix™ formula acts as a sensory stimulant in the mouth and throat to send a signal to the spinal cord to block overactive nerve signals which are causing a muscle to cramp or spasm.

How do I know it does not contain any substances prohibited by ASADA or WADA?

The CrampFix™ formula has been tested for banned substances by LGC Laboratory in the United Kingdom. The testing program used is the Informed Sports banned substance test. If you require the results we are more than happy to provide these to you.

How does CrampFix™ work?

CrampFix™ works rapidly to fix and prevent muscle cramps by targeting the overactive nerves that are causing the muscles to cramp. We don’t know exactly what causes muscle cramps but we know how to fix them! There is an association between premature muscle fatigue, exercise induced muscle cramp, stimulation of sensory nerves and interruption of alpha neutron (nerves) firing.

A mouth-to-nerve-to muscle connection.

How safe is CrampFix™?

CrampFix™ is safe to use without affecting athletic performance, as long as consumption instructions are followed. Refer to label for instructions.

What is a safe amount you can consume?

You can safely consume at least 100ml per day.

How much do you need to consume?

To prevent cramps consume 10-20ml, approx 10 minutes before activity.

To rapidly relieve cramps consume 15-20ml when cramp strikes or at first signs of cramp.

What is the scientific evidence behind it?

There are several key studies supporting the effect. Dr. Kevin Miller of Central Michigan University has conducted research supporting the beneficial effects of acetate and ‘pickle juice’. The first clinical trial was conducted on electrically induced muscle cramps (EIMC) which convincingly proved that ‘pickle juice’ successfully and rapidly reduces EIMC when compared with water as a placebo.

CrampFix™ is a highly effective formula that took three years to develop specifically for professional athletes.

When should I drink CrampFix™?

Drink 10-15 minutes before activity to prevent cramps.

Drink when cramp strikes or at first signs of cramp for rapid relief. If cramp is not relieved after 60 seconds, repeat dose.

Should I drink it all at once?

Drink just 10-15ml to prevent cramps. Not the whole 50ml bottle at once. Keep the rest of the bottle for a later stage or after activity to assist recovery.

Can I keep an open bottle of CrampFix and how should I store it?

Simply screw the lid back on and keep it until you need to use it again. Due to the low pH level, CrampFix™ can be safely stored as long as the lid remains on and no foreign particles fall into the bottle. Check the Best Before date on the bottle.

Where can I buy CrampFix™?

Buy CrampFix™ online at www.crampfix.com.au or at selected stores throughout Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Korea.

Who makes CrampFix™?

CrampFix is made by Cramp Fix Pty Ltd at the Queensland, Australian based manufacturing facility.

How do I use Crampfix®?

Simply unscrew the tamper-evident lid and drink or swirl and spit 10 to 20ml in your mouth.

Is Crampfix® safe to use?

Crampfix® is made in Australia from all natural food sources and electrolyte minerals. It is not intended to replace water, carbohydrate or electrolyte supplements; rather improve the way these necessities are utilised during moderate and high intensity exercise. Please use as directed on pack.

What does Crampfix® taste like?

Crampfix® has a strong, tangy lemon flavour which some people may find quite overpowering initially. Keep a bottle of cold water handy to drink afterwards.

What is a muscle cramp?

A muscle cramp is a sudden and involuntary or contraction of one or more of your muscles. These contractions or spasms are painful and can occur in various muscles. The muscle or muscles gets tight and does not relax. CrampFix™ can help relax these tight, contracting muscles.

What causes muscle cramps?

Cramps are commonly caused by overuse of a muscle, dehydration, muscle strain or simply holding a position for a prolonged period. In many cases, however, the cause isn’t known. Some people cramp frequently, some never cramp at all.

Breakthrough Cramp Management

CrampFix® is a new formulated supplementary sports food especially developed to help athletes to achieve their performance goals.

CrampFix® provides the impetus athletes need to increase drive performance.

FIX CRAMPS BEFORE THEY START

Fix the NERVE (NOT the muscle)

CrampFix® treats muscle cramps through the neuro-muscular system.

Instead of treating the cramping muscle itself as most commonly done, CrampFix® treats the overactive NERVES.

Just minutes after taking CrampFix®, muscle cramps anywhere in the body are rapidly released.

CrampFix helps athletes TAKE CONTROL of muscle cramps. Rapidly.

HOW IT WORKS

  1. Muscle fatigue combined with overactive nerve signals cause muscles to cramp.
  2. Drinking CrampFix® stimulates sensory nerves in the throat.
  3. A signal is sent through the spinal cord to inhibit the overactive nerve signals.
  4. The overactive signals going from the nerves to the cramping muscle are interrupted.
  5. The CRAMP IS RELIEVED or PREVENTED.

THE CRAMPFIX® FORMULA

CrampFix® contains all natural ingredients including vinegar, salt, sugar, water, natural lemon flavour, magnesium, potassium & calcium.

This proprietary formula has just the right blend of astringency, pH and mineral content that provides rapid and reliable relief.

GLUTEN FREE, VEGAN, WADA/ASADA COMPLIANT, ALL NATURAL

MADE IN AUSTRALIA

HOW TO USE CRAMPFIX®

  • Drink 10ml (2caps), 5-10 minutes BEFORE exercise to prevent muscle cramps.
  • Drink 15-20ml at FIRST SIGNS of cramping for rapid relief.
  • Drink 10ml AFTER exercise to prevent post exercise muscle cramps.

The First Time I Have NOT Cramped Over 42.2km!

CHRIS – 9 Time Marathon Runner – Gold Coast Marathon  2017

Hi Jan,

I wanted to thank you for being at the GC marathon last weekend. It was great to discuss your product at the expo and then see it on course.

I have completed 9 marathons, 8 of which I have cramped somewhere late in the race.

Much to my pleasure I completed marathon #9 with no cramps.

I had a bottle of cramp fix before the start and again at the 38km mark (from you – thanks) and it is the first time I have not cramped over 42.2km!

As per my call yesterday happy for you to use my comments.

I’ll be ordering again soon!

Thanks again and all the best with the business.

Cheers
Chris

Targeting Nerves to Treat Muscle Cramps Shows Promise Over Hydration and Electrolytes

The sports medicine community and athletes often contribute exercise related muscle cramping to dehydration or an imbalance of electrolytes. However, in an astonishing study performed by a professor of sports medicine and the director of Ironman South Africa in 1997, the conclusion was drawn that exercise-associated muscle cramping due to dehydration or electrolyte imbalances is a misconception. [1] This conclusion was drawn after the director followed 1300 runners during the competition.

The Science Behind Why Electrolytes and Hydration Don’t Help Muscle Cramps

Electrolytes and hydration must make their way through the bloodstream in order to have an effect on muscle cramps. This process takes much too long to provide relief. In fact, it takes one hour for electrolytes,[2] 30 minutes for bananas, [3] and five minutes for water. [4] For athletes, this amount of time can hinder performance due to the lack of relief of their muscular cramps.

But what about using these methods to prevent cramps rather than using them to stop cramps once they start? Even as a preventative, these measures are still not an effective choice. Researchers performed sweat testing of laborers in shipyards and mines 100 years ago. What was found was that the sweat contained high levels of chloride, which makes up half of the salt content in your sweat. This resulted in leading scientists to believe that it was the absence of this electrolyte causing muscles to malfunction rather than dehydration. [5]

Neuromuscular Fatigue and Muscle Cramps

The reason behind why electrolytes and hydration has little to no effect has to do with the neuromuscular fatigue theory. This theory believes that the issue is not with the muscles; it has to do with the nerves that control the muscles. Furthermore, the theory states:

●       Muscle contractions are initiated by a nerve, referred to as the alpha motor neuron.

●       This neuron receives messages from your brain, known as conscious movements, and also from your spinal reflexes (unconscious movements).

●       Spinal reflexes stop muscles from stretching or loading in excess.

●       Neuromuscular fatigue causes an elevation in firing from the reflexes that protect against stretching, which results in excessive muscle contractions (cramps).

Treating Cramps Through Nerve Targeting

If you’ve ever experienced a brain freeze from drinking or eating something cold, you know it’s uncomfortable. This reaction is caused by the nerves in the mouth and esophagus being topically stimulated. CrampFix uses a unique blend of ingredients which targets these nerve receptors in a person’s mouth and throat, which provides near immediate relief to your body’s neurological response. In addition, since CrampFix does not go through the bloodstream, the product relieves muscle cramps and also prevents them within 60 seconds of taking it.

CRAMPFIX HAVE ABSOLUTELY NAILED THE PRODUCT!

Alex Price recently competed at the Ironman OZ in Port Macquarie. Along with competing Ironman events himself, Alex is also an AIS Elite Triahtlon Physiotherapist, and a Triathlon/Running Coach.

Alex had the opportunity to use CrampFix® at Ironman Oz and is planning on keeping it in his nutrition kit leading into Ironman Busselton, WA later this year.

“Excited to start a partnership with the team at @crampfix! I have suffered with cramps on and off, especially during long days out and in Ironman’s and have always made my own pickle juice ‘brew’ to combat this. However these guys have absolutely nailed the product, as many athletes found out when they tested it out at Port Mac IM! And, it’s Australian made and owned!

Looking forward to having them in my corner working towards Busso this year.”

Do you know what ‘Randonneuring’ is?

Meet Jong Ha Park! He is part of Korea Randonneurs, and is the most well known within the community.

According to Wikipedia:

Randonneuring (also known as Audax in the UK, Australia and Brazil) is a long-distance cycling sport with its origins in audax cycling. In randonneuring, riders attempt courses of 200 km or more, passing through predetermined “controls” (checkpoints) every few tens of kilometres. Riders aim to complete the course within specified time limits, and receive equal recognition regardless of their finishing order. Riders may travel in groups or alone as they wish, and are expected to be self-sufficient between controls. A randonneuring event is called a randonnée or brevet, and a rider who has completed a 200 km event is called a randonneur.[1] [2] The international governing body for randonneuring is Audax Club Parisien (ACP), which works with other randonneuring organisations worldwide through Les Randonneurs Mondiaux (RM). Randonneuring is popular in France, and has a following in the Netherlands, Belgium, United Kingdom, Italy, Australia, United States, Canada, Brazil and India.

(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Randonneuring)

There are more than 10,000 registered “Randonneurs” in Korea, and upon introducing them to Crampfix, it is the best item they have tried so far.

CrampFix – “man it lives up to the name!”

“You won’t be disappointed!” – Suki Bloom, 2017  Gatorade Triathlon Series Champion 25-29 yrs.

“I’ve found that since starting a liquid only race nutrition plan, I suffer from cramping and tight muscles more frequently than I used to. UNTIL NOW! I was fortunate enough to try a little product called @crampfix and man it lives up to the name.

I’ve been using it preventatively rather than when things start to go pear shaped (a small dose every 30-60 minutes) and not only have I had ZERO cramping but I’ve found my muscles can stay a lot more relaxed for a longer period.

It looks like the team at CrampFix will be at @IMCairns (expo and running aid station). So if you’re looking for a new cramp ease product, or want to give it a go, get in touch with the team, PM me, or visit the stall at the expo!

You won’t be disappointed!”

Suki Bloom is currently training for her first Ironman event in Cairns on 11th June 2017. After commencing triathlon in 2016, her credentials to date include:

  • 2nd Age Champ 25-29yrs at the Tweed Enduro 2017
  • Age Champion 25-29yrs Gatorade Tri Series (3 x Gold, 2 x Silver, 1 x Bronze)
  • Bronze in Queensland Tri Series
  • Duathlon World Qualifier 2016

“It’s genuinely a great product! People just want something that works :)”

Rapid Cramp Relief & Prevention Drink for Athletes

Did you know that contrary to popular relief, hydration and electrolytes on their own can’t always prevent or relieve muscle cramps?

For athletes, muscle cramping and fatigue can severely impede performance, which is why husband & wife team Jan and Michelle set out to develop a remedy in 2015 after hearing about the effects that acetate or vinegar can have on cramps.

The remedy they developed is CrampFix; an all natural, concentrated formula that works rapidly through the nervous system to stop the overacting nerves that are causing muscles to cramp. While using acetate or vinegar to manage muscle cramps isn’t an idea that’s often heard about in the mainstream media, Jan and Michelle decided to look further into it after hearing about particular research from the USA that mentioned American Footballers were having some success managing muscle cramps with these ingredients.

Ironically, Jan and Michelle were familiar with acetate given that it was often used in their condiments factory. Given familiarity with the ingredients & through further research, they decided that CrampFix would initially focus on providing cramp relief to rugby players in Australia.

In the initial trial, the Western Force rugby union team used the early version of the product and it showed great success. Following the trial with the Western Force, CrampFix started to be used by the GWS Giants AFL, the Cronulla Sharks and the Melbourne Rebels. Once it was proven that the product does indeed work effectively, the next step was looking at how CrampFix could be marketed. At this time it was apparent that with the target audience being athletes that suffer from muscle cramps, developing a sports supplement drink would be the best course of action.

With a background in food manufacturing, including ice cream and condiments, and with a broad range of business skills that include marketing, product development, finance management and accounting, Jan and Michelle felt confident they had the key skills that are needed to launch this new business venture. They continuously draw from their experience and they are dedicated to making CrampFix a name known throughout the entire athletic community.

CrampFix works by stimulating the sensory nerves in the throat, which then sends further signals to the nerves. Much of the research regarding acetate/vinegar and how they play a role in preventing and relieving muscle cramps is still not widely known. There is definitely skepticism out there but once athletes try CrampFix, they seem to be hooked on the undeniable results!
