Magnesium is a mineral that is essential for many functions in the body and has been shown to play a role in migraine headaches. Low levels of magnesium have been associated with an increased frequency and severity of migraines, and magnesium supplementation has been found to be helpful for some people with migraines.
Migraine headaches are thought to be caused by a combination of genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors, and magnesium is believed to play a role by modulating neurotransmitter release, regulating vascular tone, and reducing inflammation. Research has shown that magnesium supplementation can improve symptoms in some people with migraines, although more research is needed to fully understand the relationship between magnesium and migraines.
It is considered a useful supplement because it has a relatively low risk of side effects and is well-tolerated by most people. Magnesium supplements can be taken orally, and can be found in a variety of forms. Magnesium citrate is preferred due to rapid and easy adoption without side effects.
