Stop migraines by taking these nutrients with magnesium
Last week, I told you how magnesium could save your life if you have a heart attack. This wonderful nutrient can help lower your blood pressure, ease constipation, and reduce diabetic symptoms. Now there’s evidence it can reduce the frequency of migraines if you take it with three other nutrients.
The researchers conducted this new study on children. But it will work just as well on adults. The researchers gave a group of school-aged children a combination of gingko biloba, CoQ10, riboflavin (vitamin B2), and magnesium. They found that the four-nutrient cocktail significantly reduced the frequency of migraine attacks. Their frequency dropped from 9.71 per month to 4.53 per month. That’s a greater than 50% reduction in attacks.
I always prefer to look for the cause of migraines first. These can include a toxic diet, food allergies, stress, etc. But some people need immediate relief. Certainly, if you have a real problem with migraines, and your doctor is pushing toxic drugs on you, consider these incredibly safe nutrients. Gingko is great for nourishing brain vessels. Magnesium helps normalize arteries in general and helps blood flow. CoQ10 is great for brain health. And B vitamins are critical for cell metabolism.
Take 60 mg twice daily of gingko extract, 100 mg daily of riboflavin (please take with other B vitamins), 100 mg daily of CoQ10 as Ubiquinol, and up to 1,000 mg of magnesium. Start with 250-500 mg daily, as larger amounts can cause loose bowels.
Yours for better health and medical freedom,
