Greater than twenty million Americans suffer from migraines, a vascular headache that can cause a disabling cascade of symptoms. Magnesium levels affect serotonin receptors, and also have an effect on nitric oxide synthesis and release, as well as on NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartic acid)
receptors—all brain structures and chemicals suspected to be important in migraines do to their role on blood vessels. In the brain, fluctuating serotonin levels can send blood vessels into spasm and aggravating the symptoms of a migraine. There is scientific evidence that supports magnesium can aid in the prevention and treatment of migraine and cluster headaches.
Magnesium is a safe alternative to try for those suffering from recurrent or disabling migraines or other types of headaches. Riboflavin is vitamin B2 and in super-high doses, it can help reduce the incidence of migraines by helping the brain cells utilize energy. Researchers have found that some people who get migraines may not have enough energy stored in their brain cells. Riboflavin helps the enzymes in the body tap into the energy stored in those cells.
***In a Belgian study of 49 people who frequently got migraines, researchers got good results with daily doses of 400 milligrams of riboflavin. At that dose, about half of the people in the study became migraine-free. Among the others, the intensity of pain was reduced by about 70 percent***
