Magnesium for migraine and headaches

Over 150 different types of pain can be experienced within the head. Magnesium citrate can help alleviate such pain.

Who's never experienced sharp, throbbing or dull pressure? Headaches manifest themselves in many different ways, science knows more than 150 of them. Some people are sensitive to weather fluctuations, for example. Persistent stress or tension in the neck and shoulders might also trigger headaches.

Nearly 10 million Germans are affected by migraine. This chronic disease causes its victims enormous psychological strain as a result of intense headaches, nausea, and vomiting.

What is the trigger?

Headaches and migraines can have different causes. In addition to a genetic disposition, stress, lack of sleep, hormonal disorders and muscle tension are all triggers. Tobacco and alcohol are also classic headache triggers.

A magnesium deficiency often contributes to the development of headaches. Studies involving migraine patients have shown a clear deficiency of magnesium in the blood.

A magnesium deficiency leads to the over-agitation of the muscle and nerve fibres. The result is tension in the neck and shoulders, which then leads to a tension headache. Furthermore, this may cause a restriction of the vessels in the brain with the possibility of triggering a migraine.

On this basis, an adequate supply of the essential-for-life mineral magnesium is highly recommended for the prevention of tension-related headaches and as a migraine prophylaxis.

However it all depends on the correct active substance.

How does this work? Food products contain magnesium in an organic form, for example, as magnesium citrate. For this reason, nearly all Diasporal® products contain gentle-action magnesium citrate.

The German Migraine and Headache Society also recommends high doses of magnesium for therapy and prevention of migraines.

Magnesium - the natural therapy-alternative

Depending on the level of magnesium deficiency, high doses of magnesium are recommended for the prevention of tension-related headaches and as a migraine prophylaxis (2 x 300 mg magnesium per day).

We recommend 2 x 1 sticks of Magnesium-Diasporal® 300 mg, granules for oral solution, per day. This should be taken regularly for at least a period of 3 months. With normal kidney function, Magnesium-Diasporal® can be taken on a long-term basis.
