Symptoms and Causes of Migraines

Migraine headaches are diagnosed by their level of pain, number of attacks (at least 5, lasting up to 72 hours) and symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound. Migraines affect 3 times more women than men. Many sufferers can predict a migraine by the appearance of an “aura,” or changes around the peripheral of their vision. A migraine can be caused by stress, anxiety, bright lights, lack of sleep and hormonal changes. It is believed that women suffer more often than men due to the changes in estrogen and other hormone levels throughout their cycles.

Dietary Deficiencies

Another common cause of a migraine is dietary deficiencies, including low levels of the B vitamins and folic acid. B vitamins include vitamin B1 (thiamine), vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B3 (niacin/niacinamide), vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), and vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin).

Riboflavin and Folic Acid Can Help

Riboflavin (B2) is found in milk, eggs, meat and green vegetables, and has been shown to reduce the number of migraine headaches when taken daily (400 mg/day). In addition to riboflavin, folic acid has been shown to reduce the number of migraine attacks by 52%. Supplementation with a combination of folic acid (2mg), vitamin B6 (25 mg) and B12 (400 mg) was shown to lower the number of migraine headaches by 39%. This displays a significant improvement as a result of adding B vitamins and folic acid supplements.

Clinical Multi-Vitamin and LiverSupport & Detox

Natural Wellness’ Clinical Multi-Vitamin is an excellent source of all B vitamins and folic acid, as well as vitamins C, E and D3 – all of which are believed to contribute to the reduction in the number of migraine headaches. B vitamins are also vital to liver health and the detoxification process; Natural Wellness’ LiverSupport & Detox contains high levels of vitamin B complex and can be taken to ensure maximum levels.

Anyone who suffers from migraine headaches knows that they are debilitating and severely painful. Supplementation that includes a rich complex of B vitamins is a low-cost way of reducing the number of incidents of migraine attacks, giving sufferers a much needed respite from the pain.
