Does Magnesium Help With Migraine Headaches?
Hey everyone, today I will share my thoughts on Magnesium and how it has helped me with reducing Migraine Headaches to where I hardly get a Migraine now.
I don’t know about you but I will do anything I can to prevent migraine headaches. I used to get them very often and very bad as well.
A few weeks ago, I started taking Magnesium tablets just so that I would help reduce stress and help my muscles to be more relaxed.
However, I started reading on the container label that in order to prevent migraines, I should take 2 capsules in the morning and 2 capsules at night.
I started taking as per directions and I have not had a Migraine since then (2 weeks now with no Migraines!).
Most of the time the migraine would wake me up at 4am and I remember thinking….”Oh no…I am going to have a horrible day today”.
For me personally, when I get a migraine, it triggers nausea and vomiting. Taking panadol or Nurofen does nothing for me, in fact if I drink water alone, my stomach will not hold it in and I will throw up.
I end up vomiting 3-4 times and have to lay down, close my eyes and just hope to feel better soon.
I can tell for sure when it is a migraine because pain killers don’t work and I get nausea and vomiting.
As you can see in the image below, a headache is usually not localized, pain killers will help get rid of a headache and nausea and vomiting is not associated with headaches.
So if you suffer from Migraines make sure you try Magnesium, it has helped me so much and this is why I am sharing my experience with you.
Other health benefits of Magnesium are:
1. Magnesium is involved in hundreds of biochemical reactions in the body.
About 60% of magnesium is in your bones while the rest is in your muscles, soft tissues and fluids, including blood.
Every cell in the body contains magnesium and needs it to function.
Magnesium helps with…
– Energy production
– Protein formation
– Gene maintenance
– Muscle movements
– Nervous system regulation
Studies suggest that around 50% of the people in the US and Europe get less than the recommended daily amount of magnesium.
2. Magnesium may boost exercise performance
When you exercise you may need 10% – 20% more magnesium as opposed to when you rest, depending on the activity.
Magnesium helps to move blood sugar into your muscles and dispose of lactate which can build up during exercise and cause fatigue.
3. Magnesium fights depression.
Magnesium plays a critical role in your brain function and mood. Low levels of Magnesium in your body are linked to an increased risk of depression.
Some experts believe that many cases of depression and mental illness are caused by the low magnesium content in modern food.
Supplementing with this mineral may help reduce symptoms of depression and in some cases the results can be dramatic.
4. Magnesium has benefits against Type 2 Diabetes.
Studies suggest that about 48% of people with type 2 diabetes habe low levels of magnesium in their blood.
This can impair insulin’s ability to keep blood sugar levels under control.
People with a low magnesium intake have a higher risk of developing diabetes.
One study which followed more than 4,000 people for 20 years found that those with the highest magnesium intake were 47% less likely to develop diabetes.
There are more benefits I can list but to keep the post as short as I can, I will stop here for now 😊
