Migraines and Vitamin Deficiencies

31 October 2018 No Comment

I was sent an article last week by a Nutritionist I know (she’s an amazing Nutritionist, if you’re looking for one!) which talked about the link between migraine headaches and certain vitamin deficiencies. According to the article, “A high percentage of children, teens and young adults with migraines appear to have mild deficiencies in vitamin D, riboflavin and coenzyme Q10 — a vitamin-like substance found in every cell of the body that is used to produce energy for cell growth and maintenance.”

Now, to me, this is a bit of a chicken and egg situation. By that I mean they are not quite sure if you develop migraines as a result of being deficient in these nutrients, or whether it is the other way around.

But the reality is that it is an easy enough thing to test (blood test) and an easy enough thing to just take a supplement for a month to see. If you know anyone who has migraines please send them this as even if it only made a 10% difference in reducing the severity of their migraines they will thank you forever.
