Magnesium for Migraines-Is it Enough?

Under: Migraine & Headache


Numerous studies support the use of magnesium as a supplement for preventing migraine headaches. In fact, yet another study just published in the Journal Neurosciences found that serum levels of magnesium were substantially lower in migraine sufferers than in the general population of people who didn’t get migraines.

In fact, the researchers found that as serum levels of magnesium decreased the frequency of migraine attacks significantly increased.

Magnesium supplementation in the correct forms and amounts has to be part of any healthy regimen for migraine sufferers. But is it enough?

The answer is yes, for some sufferers, and, no, for many other sufferers.  The reason for this is that there is not just ONE malfunctioned or dysfunctional mechanism or imbalance that is known to cause migraine attacks.


Vasospasm, inflammation, stress, and nerves are just a few of the possible contributors to our resultants of migraine attacks.  So while magnesium certainly plays a role in helping to address or balance some of these contributing factors, by itself, it doesn’t work for every chronic migraine sufferer.

This is probably why we have received literally hundreds of letters asking why MigreLief worked for a particular user when taking the individual ingredients, at the same doses did not. ***

MigreLief Ingredients:  

1.  MAGNESIUM (OXIDE & CITRATE) – 360 mg (daily dose)
2.  RIBOFLAVIN B-2  – 400 mg (daily dose)
3.  FEVERFEW (Puracol – proprietary whole leaf and extract)  – 100  mg. (daily dose)

All 3 ingredients in MigreLief are listed in The American Acedemy of Neurology’s Evidence Based Guidelines for Migraine Prophylaxis

Research studies show that almost half of all migraine sufferers have low blood levels of Magnesium, which is critical in controlling vasospasms (the contraction and dilation of blood vessels in the brain which occurs during migraines).  Migraine sufferers also suffer mitochondrial energy deficiencies, which Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) can improve when given in high dosages.  The plant material Feverfew has been shown to reduce platelet aggregation, which can lead to vasoconstriction. All 3 ingredients have been recommended for years by many doctors and top headache specialists based on the clinical studies behind them.

We just don’t know which individual factor or combination of factors is casual in each different migraine sufferer.  The presence of 3 natural medicines in MigreLief, each with 3 different mechanisms of action, seem to cover ALL of the bases for a majority of chronic migraine sufferers, not just one or two.

There may even be synergies between the 3 ingredients that comprise the effective triple therapy in MigreLief that we just can’t completely explain.
