Migraines can be prevented with vitamins, study says

Migraines can be prevented with vitamins, study says

The biologists say mild deficiencies in vitamin D, coenzyme Q10 and riboflavin can provoke a migraine. The recent study reveals that many children, teens and young adults are suffering from migraines because of vitamins disbalance in their organisms. 

During the 58th Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Headache Society in San Diego, scientists and therapists proved the importance of well-balancing system in the organism. The deficiencies of riboflavin, coenzyme Q10, vitamin D can provoke the migraines even at young persons and children, says Dr. Suzanne Hagler, a Headache Medicine fellow in the division of Neurology and colleagues from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.

The study led by Dr. Hagler, involved patients of different age with migraines, almost all of them had disbalance of key vitamins. The checking of their baseline blood levels showed needed vitamins and migraine medications set, that the patients had taken if the levels were low.

After examination their data by scientists, it became clear the difference between the male and female set of vitamins. Mainly, women and girls had not enough of coenzyme Q10 at baseline, but men and boys suffered from vitamin D deficiency. Important to note, that all these people had taken riboflavin and coenzyme in the case of episodic migraines.
