INVENTED BY A NOBEL-PRIZE WINNING NEUROSCIENTIST/ENDURANCE ATHLETE AND HIS FRIEND, A NEUROBIOLOGY PROFESSOR AT HARVARD

Off the coast of Cape Cod,

Dr. Rod MacKinnon and his friend, Dr. Bruce Bean, were deep sea kayaking in the winter when they were both seized with life-threatening muscle cramps. They experienced such debilitating pain that neither could steady their kayaks.

While they survived the excruciating moment, it flipped the switch on their curiosity – why do we cramp? What is the cause? What is the cure?

Over the next five years, Rod and Bruce worked to unravel the mystery, and discovered this surprising truth: when it comes to preventing muscle cramps, it not about treating the muscle, it about treating the nerve.
