Magnesium for Natural Migraine Relief

Magnesium for Natural Migraine Relief

A common contributor to migraine headaches is low magnesium.  A magnesium deficiency can manifest in many ways because your body needs magnesium for more than 600 enzymatic reactions.  Thankfully, there is a simple fix.

Studies have shown that taking a magnesium supplement could be an effective way to prevent migraine headaches. 

One study of 81 migraine patients were given either an oral magnesium supplement or a placebo.  The group receiving magnesium experienced a remarkable 42% reduction in the frequency of migraine headaches. (1)

Another study showed 600mg/day of magnesium supplement had a remarkable reduction in attack frequency and severity as opposed to those taking a placebo. (2)

You can boost your magnesium levels through diet if the food is not a “trigger” for your migraines. 

A few healthy foods high in magnesium include:

  • avocado
  • leafy green vegetables
  • nuts - such as almonds and cashews
  • seeds - such as flax, pumpkin or chia
  • bananas
  • dark chocolate
  • Cultured yogurt

The easiest way to ensure you are getting enough magnesium daily is by taking a magnesium supplement.  Research has shown magnesium supplementation as an effective natural migraine headache remedy.  Magnesium supplementation (400-600mg/ day) has strong support for preventing and relieving migraines. (3)

Restore your magnesium balance and help prevent migraines by taking a magnesium supplement daily.  The most common side effect of magnesium supplementation is diarrhea, which is easily fixed by decreasing the dose.  Natural forms of magnesium are easier for the body to absorb.  The best magnesium supplement I have found that is easily absorbable is from Thorne

  • "This was my first chiropractic visit and I will definitely continue to see Dr. Venessa! The space is beautiful and clean. The person working reception was welcoming, knowledgeable and seemed happy to answer my questions. I was able to complete my paperwork before coming in so there was no wait. Dr. Venessa asked me some questions and did a sort of assessment before my adjustment. She kept me informed of what she would be doing and has a nice bedside manner so nothing seemed awkward. She finished my adjustment and I checked out. All in all I had a great experience in the office but what happened after was even better- my energy increased like crazy! At first I didn’t even consider it might have been from my adjustment. I was just talking with my husband when he asked if I thought it may have been from my chiro appointment so I googled it and apparently that’s common! So again, very happy with my experience and I will be back!"
