Extra calcium and especially magnesium have helped somewhat for me. Nutritional docs say that we're all depleted in magnesium which causes major muscle clenching. A liquid form works best since we're also pretty compromised in our gut assimilation. Did you know that receptor sites are found all over our guts - the second brain, it's called. Anyhow, magnesium citrate or glyccinate is the recommended form. It may cause some loose bowels, but hey, druther than than constipation any day.
