Advice & Tips: I originally started this for spasticity and it does wonders for that. The very first morning after taking this a bedtime I awoke feeling muscles in my legs that I haven't felt in years. Unexpectedly I also found this eliminated my constipation problems I've had for years because of muscle weakness.
