Migraines are severe, recurrent headaches generally accompanied by other symptoms such as visual disturbances or nausea. Migraines occur as a result of changes in the diameter of blood vessels to the brain and surrounding structures. Initially, the blood vessels constrict (narrow), reducing blood flow to these areas. Minutes to hours later, the blood vessels dilate (enlarge), leading to increased blood flow and a severe headache. Alcohol, low blood sugar and certain foods can also cause migraines.
Nutritional supplements can help ease the pain of migraines. Feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium) may inhibit inflammatory processes believed to contribute to migraines. Studies at the London Migraine Clinic have increased interest in parthenolide, Feverfew’s key component, for its role in helping to maintain normal blood vessel tone. Magnesium, CoQ10, fish oil and vitamin B complex may help in prevention and may help ease the pain of migraines.*
