  • Those People who get Migraines often have a Deficiency of Certain Vitamins in their Diets

It has been found that those people who get migraines often have a deficiency of certain vitamins in their diets.

Kids, adolescents and adults who undergo the torture of migraines tend to have a deficiency of vitamin D, riboflavin and coenzyme Q10. The third of these is found in every cell of the body and produces energy for cell multiplication and upkeep. While these deficiencies may be there, the studies on the matter are still a little unclear. More research needs to be carried out before it can be ascertained that such is indeed the case.

Whether vitamin supplements will help in those who suffer from migraines stil needs to be demonstrated. Yet there is something wrong with their health profiles and biochemistry otherwise why would they have any migraines in the first place. In migraine headache, vitamin D, riboflavin, coenzyme Q10 and folate deficiencies are held to be responsible for the painful condition. Girls and women were more likely to have coenzyme Q10 deficiency than boys and men. The boys and men tended to have vitamin D deficiency. Folate deficiency remained a moot point. Chronic sufferers tended to have coenzyme Q10 and riboflavin deficiencies. Those with episodic migraines didn’t though.

The picture is still quite complex. For one thing, most of the patients who suffer from migraines tend to receive treatment in the form of drugs and medicinal agents. To turn to vitamin supplements instead would be a bold step. Yet as they say, today’s errors become the truths of tomorrow. We can only wait and see whether a person with a pounding headache in the future would benefit from some vitamins instead of taking medicines that have nasty side effects.
