Granions ® Muscle Relaxant
The granions ® solution is a formula combining mineral and vitamins in glass drinkable ampoules (content 2ml). it is a unique manufacturing process, created in 1945: the colloid. The mineral element is trapped inside an amylose-based solution for:
- Better absorption: protection of mineral elements gainst gastric acid – no need sunlingual use.
- Improved bioavailability (absorption in the duodenum) – improved efficiency
- Taste of minerals marked by amylose (sweet taste)
- A health supplement following a medicinal manufacturing process.
A complete formula that brings all the necessary ingredients to a proper muscle function and a solution to relieve cramps in:
- Manual workers
- Who have unbalanced level of trace elements, minerals and vitamins
- Pregnant women
- Adults (even to those who are not involved in sports)
- Elderly persons
What is a cramp?
- Painful, intense and unintentional contraction
- Comes from one muscle or a group of muscles
- Duration: 30sec – 10min, followed by unpleasant sensation
- Often occurs at night (restless nights)
- Physical activity (especially in case of bad or insufficient preparation)
- Some metabolic disorders, such as dehydration and dyskaliemia
- Excessive sweating which leads to loss of minerals
- Muscular overload (remaining in the same position for a long period of time)
- Cold temperatures
- Pregnancy (due to changes in the body including muscle stretch, dehydration, nerve compression and lack of minerals)
- Elderly persons (as we age, our muscles get weaker and nerves undergo some decay)
Potassium (k+) (insert picture on page 6 from PDF)
- Acts as a neuromuscular function: regulate contraction and relaxation of muscle.
- 98% of K+ is inside the cells
- K+ storage in the muscles (40%)
- Reduces muscles disorders
- Improves muscle tissue growth and enhance muscle strength
- K+ deficiency leads to cramps, muscle weakness and fatigue.
According to EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) as per journal 2010; 8(2): 1469, there is a well-established casual connection between potassium nutritional intake and a good muscle + neurological function.
Magnesium (Mg 2+)
- Intervenes in >300 enzymatic reactions: transmission of nerve impulses, therefore essential for physiological functions such as vascular tone, muscle contration and relation.
- Mg2+ storage in the muscles (27%)
- Reduces muscles Aches and spasms
- Calms nerves and anxiety
- Mg2+ deficiency leads to spasms, involuntary muscle movements, facial tics and overall fatigue.
- Ranomized, double blind, placebo-controlled
- 73 pregnant women
- Results: Decrease of cramps frequency – from 1 daily to 1-2 per week, and significant pain decrease.

- 1/3 of copper content of the body is in the muscle
- Plays a role in energy production
- An essential mineral for healthy muscle tone and function
- Supports connective tissue of the body
- Copper deficiency leads to muscle soreness and fatigue
- Selenoprotein W is essential for muscle function
- Maintain healthy metabolism
- Boost immunity
- Improves blood flow
- During pregnancy a woman should consume 60mcg daily, and 70mcg during lactation.
- Selenium deficiency leads to muscle weakness, poor immune function and cognitive decline
Group B Vitamins
Vitamin B1 (Thiamine)
- It is names B1 because it was the first B vitamin discovered.
- Intervenes in carbohydrates metabolism, therefore it provides energy
- Helps nervous system to function properly
- Essential to proper muscle function
- B1 deficiency leads to muscle wasting
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)
- Essential to sodium / potassium balance
- Essential role in brain metabolism
- Essential to muscke growth and repair
- Supports the absorption of B12
- B6 deficiency leads to muscle twitching
Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin)
- Participates to energy synthesis
- Supports normal function of nerve and blood cells
- Assist in metabolising protein and fat
- B12 deficiency leads to muscle weakness and generalised fatigue
Vitamin B6 and B12 are the most important B vitamins when it comes to muscle growth and recovery. Muscle fibres are made up of tiny protein filaments known as myocytes. The Vitamins B6 and B12, both have a direct role in protein metabolism of the muscle.
The result of the Vitamin B group put together, is improved blood flow and nutrients delivery to working muscles.
- Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled
- 28 patients, 3 months treatment
- Cramps intensity decreased by 86%. Decreased by frequency, intensity and duration.
