Migraine Headache

Migraines are severe, throbbing headaches that may or may not cause nausea and sensitivity to light.

 

Supplement Considerations

High Potency Multiple Vitamin and Mineral

A high potency multiple vitamin and mineral should contain important levels of certain B-vitamins and magnesium, which have been shown to reduce the frequency and severity of migraine attacks.

Essential Fatty Acids

An essential fatty acid should contain the perfect combination of essential fatty acids to enable the body to make Prostaglandin-series 1 and series-3 hormones, which relax blood vessels and suppress inflammation – two important considerations in the prevention of migraine headaches. The Adëeva All-In-One Multi-Vitamin & Mineral contains boosted levels of antioxidants and B-vitamins that help facilitate the action of Nature’s Essential Oil in the synthesis of these important prostaglandin hormones.

 

Nutrients Formula for Migraine Prevention

A nutrients formula for migraine prevention should contain the natural herbs Butterbur and Feverfew. Butterbur produces anti-inflammatory effects that could prevent the blood vessels from constricting and initiating a migraine. Studies have shown benefit in reducing the frequency and severity of migraines using this supplement. The active ingredient in the herbal extract Feverfew is parthenolide, which specifically binds to and inhibits a protein that plays a role in the body’s inflammatory process. Parthenolide helps prevent excessive clumping of platelets and inhibits the release of certain inflammatory chemicals, which are factors in the production of migraine headaches.

 

Additional Supplement Considerations

Additional Magnesium

400 mg per day (Studies have shown that the intake of 600 mg of magnesium per day (from supplementation) can reduce frequency and severity of migraines. A High Potency Multiple Vitamin should contain 200 mg of magnesium, and thus an additional 400 mg from a magnesium supplement can help achieve the 600 mg. goal. Note that anyone with kidney disease must get approval from their physician or specialist before taking additional magnesium.
