Magnesium for migraine

Magnesium is effective in preventing migraine headaches according to a new study published in the last issue of journal Magnesium Research.  The researchers found that patients treated with magnesium, compared to those treated with placebo, had fewer migraine attacks and the attacks were milder.  In addition, magnesium treated patients had improved blood flow in their brains, while those on placebo did not.  This is just another confirmation of previous findings of the efficacy of magnesium in the treatment of migraine headaches.  Since magnesium is very inexpensive and extremely safe, every patient with migraine headache should be given a trial of magnesium supplementation.

    Yes, it is possible that taking a magnesium will help relive your migraine auras. Besides magnesium, you may want to ask your doctor about taking CoQ10, omega-3, feverfew, boswellia, and other supplements. You can try one or two or even three of these at a time since each supplement may take a month to show effect.

    I get Migraines(Basilar) where I lose my sight. I was thinking about using Ultra Mag Magnesium as I don’t know where to turn for answers. Ultra Mag has Taurinate, Citrate, Malate, Glycinate & Succinate in it. Would this stop me from losing my sight?

    Interesting! This maybe one of the several alternative treatments for preventing and relieving migraines. The pain and irritation that comes from migraines can really excruciating that most of the time it interferes your day to day activity. Its good that there are now a lot of natural treatments for migraines that are effective.
