Vitamins for headaches and migraines

Over-the-counter headache medications such as acetaminophen and aspirin are used by almost everyone at some point in their lives. These over-the-counter medications are easy to buy and can lend themselves to overuse or, even worse, abuse if not used correctly. Acetaminophen can also cause liver damage when taken in large amounts. Migraine medications are commonly prescribed to treat migraines because of their ability to target specific chemical pathways that are often dysregulated in the brain. Unfortunately, some of these medications often come with a whole new list of symptoms and cause frustrating or worrisome side effects.

Did you know that there are supplements that can address many underlying causes of frequent headaches and/or migraines.

  • Omega 820 (fish oil) can help prevent constriction of blood vessels and may prevent actions in the brain that lead to migraine attacks.
  • MagComplexcontains bioavailable forms of magnesium. Research has shown low levels of magnesium in the brain during a migraine attack. Magnesium is necessary for the proper functioning of the nerves. Magnesium deficiency and migraines are thought to be linked, making it an important vitamin for migraine aura and a natural remedy for migraines and headaches.
  • Digestzymesis a full-spectrum digestive enzyme blend containing specific enzymes such as Betaine Hydrochloride, Ox Bile Extract and Pancreatin targeting protein breakdown and fat absorption for maximum nutrient absorption. Food-induced headaches and migraines can sometimes be reduced by helping the system break down and digest sensitive foods more quickly.
