With orthomolecular vital substances against migraine
Migraine is a disease affecting the nervous system. Around 10% of the population suffer from this disease, with women being the most affected. Symptoms of migraines include half-sided headaches, nausea and sensitivity to light and sound, whereby the effects are individual and a distinction is made between various forms of migraine.
Unfortunately, the mechanisms of a migraine attack have not yet been conclusively clarified, meaning that this disease is not medically curable. However, it is known that migraines can be triggered by key stimuli, including stress, certain foods and environmental factors.
It is also known that the right combination of micronutrients can help to reduce the duration and intensity of a migraine attack and significantly reduce the number of migraine days in the long term.
A recent study shows that a micronutrient combination of magnesium, riboflavin (vitamin B2) and coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone), among others, reduces the number of migraine days by almost 50%. A reduction in the intensity and duration of migraine attacks was also observed.Migraine: increased homocysteine levels in the blood
A randomised double-blind study from Australia also found a link between migraine frequency and the concentration of homocysteine in the blood. Homocysteine is an amino acid that can accumulate and damage the blood vessels. A sufficient intake of B vitamins (folic acid, vitamin B6 + vitamin B12) can lead to a reduction in the homocysteine concentration in the blood. In this study, supplementation with a vitamin B complex led to a reduction in homocysteine levels and a significant decrease in migraine attacks compared to a placebo group. The severity of headaches was also significantly reduced.In addition, oxidative stress increases significantly during a migraine attack and more micronutrients are consumed. It is therefore advisable to take a combination of radical scavengers or antioxidants (e.g. vitamin C + E, Q10) that counteract oxidative stress. L-carnitine and magnesium have also been shown to have positive effects against migraines as cellular energy providers.
Omega-3 fatty acids also play an important role in migraines due to their regulating influence on inflammatory processes. Iron deficiency anaemia has often been detected in menstrual migraine, which is an indication that iron is helpful in this form of migraine alongside vitamin E and magnesium.
Micronutrient-based therapy based on the principle of orthomolecular medicine can therefore help to significantly reduce the frequency, intensity and duration of migraine attacks.
Our product Nutri-Plus Migrade combines all the micronutrients listed in just one product and is therefore the ideal companion for migraine patients.
Studies show that migraine patients can have disorders in energy metabolism or increased energy consumption in the brain. In addition, the state of excitation of the cells is increased in migraine patients. As a result, there is a higher energy requirement, which can lead to an energy deficit. The result is migraine attacks.
Nutri-Plus Migrade provides exactly the nutrients that the brain and other body cells need to meet this additional demand and prevent migraine attacks.
