15 Nutrients for Migraine Sufferers
Reduce pain and intensity
Anyone who doesn’t realize that your diet has an impact on migraines hasn’t been paying attention—and that includes the medical community.
While they shrug their shoulders at the cause—and offer terrible suggestions like Botox, anti-depressants, and narcotics for prevention and treatment… they rarely provide solutions that make a significant impact on the duration or severity of the condition.
But if you want to find a lasting solution for migraines, you shouldn’t look to your doctor… just look in the mirror.
You see, migraines are highly impacted by lifestyle factors, and the only person who can fix that for you is you.
This latest study highlights that fact, providing 15 key nutrients that could drastically impact your quality of life if you suffer from migraines.
For this study, researchers looked at the impact of three dietary patterns on the two factors that matter most to those suffering:
Pain intensity and pain duration.
They evaluated 15 specific nutrients and found that all of them impacted at least one of these key factors.
The 15 nutrients were divided as follows into three groups:
Group 1 showed an inverse relationship between nutrient levels and pain intensity (meaning the lower the levels, the higher the intensity of the migraine pain):
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin K
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B2
Group 2 showed the lowest intensity in pain scores and the shortest duration of pain:
- Vitamin B1
- Vitamin B3
- Vitamin B9
- Total fiber
And the two in group three showed a positive association between higher levels and shorter duration of pain:
- Vitamin B12
- Vitamin D
The best way to maintain high levels of these nutrients is by eating the foods that contain them. And if you need an extra boost, you can add in supplements until your levels are adequate.
This is by no means the ONLY lifestyle factor that impacts migraines… but it’s an important one.
And it’s one you can start implementing today.
