TIP OF THE MONTH: Vitamin D for Reduced Migraines

It’s been offered that the inflammation and a reduced immune system may have a role in migraine headache. The role of nutrients – vitamin D, vitamin B12, alpha lipoic acid, CoQ10, magnesium, niacin, riboflavin, and riboflavin - in the supportive care of migraines is seemingly therapeutic. (3) A recent study reports that higher levels of serum Vitamin D (50 to less than 100 ng/mL) decreases the odds of suffering a migraine headache by 80% to 83% as opposed to levels below 20 ng/mL. (4) Ashburn migraine sufferers may want to consider enhancing their Vitamin D status in addition to their Ashburn chiropractic care plan.
