Migraine revisited (2)-the role of nutrients in treatment


To minimize the frequency of migraine attacks, migraine triggers need to be identified and avoided .It is recommended that migraine sufferers stop smoking, get sufficient sleep (but not oversleep because oversleep may serve as a migraine trigger), and minimize stress. Nutrients that may be effective prophylactic agents for migraine include the following:

Magnesium


Studies have shown that up to 50 percent of migraine patients suffer from magnesium deficiencies during an acute attack.take magnesium citrate 160-mg capsules at night before bed



butterbur herb


Butterbur root.
Several studies found butterbur root ( Petasites hybridus) is an effective prophylactic (pencegahan) agent for migraine.take 50 milligrams (mg) up to three times daily




feverfew herb

Feverfew.
Feverfew ( Tanacetum parthenium) preparations have been studied for migraine prophylaxis in several trials.take 100 mg daily

Riboflavin.
Riboflavin (vitamin B 2) has been used as a prophylactic measure for migraine.take 100 to 200 mg daily with food.

Coenzyme Q10.
Several studies have demonstrated effectiveness of coenzyme Q10 in reducing the frequency of migraine headaches.take 100 mg up to three times daily

S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAMe). generally, between 400 mg and 1600 mg orally daily

Probiotics—3.5 billion of Lactobacillus group, 1 billion of Bifidobacterium group, and 0.5 billion of Streptococcus thermophilus.

kulit manggis mengandungi bahan aktif xanthones yg mempunyai property 'natural cox-2 inhibitor' (painkiller) dan anti-inflammatory. so mmg bagus utk pesakit migraine.
