Food supplement containing live bacteria
Migraines are often accompanied by digestive symptoms and there is a clear link between the prevalence of migraines and many digestive disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and gastroesophageal reflux (GERD).
Hannah said, “Low levels of beneficial bacteria in the gut can damage the lining of the digestive tract and lead to a leaky gut.
“Leaky gut is a risk factor for inflammation, and it is believed that inflammatory compounds derived from the gut may act on the trigeminal nerve (a major pathway to pain) in the brain and trigger migraine attacks.
“Live bacteria dietary supplements are considered beneficial for their ability to support healthy microbial balance and gut lining health.
In fact, a recent clinical study found that the 14 live bacterial strains in Bio-Kult Migréa significantly reduced the frequency and severity of episodic and chronic migraines in just eight weeks.
According to Hannah, it has been found that the level of magnesium in the blood is reduced in migraines.
She said, “Sick versus non-sick, and research suggests that magnesium deficiency can contribute to seizures (especially in menstrual migraines).
“Magnesium is easily depleted by intense exercise, stress, alcohol, and other factors, and many people may ingest less than optimal amounts through diet.”
Leafy green vegetables like spinach, Swiss chard, kale, and kale are great sources of magnesium. So try to eat at least one to two servings a day, the nutrition therapist said.
Hannah added, “Studies show that magnesium supplementation also has the ability to significantly reduce the frequency and severity of migraines and help reduce tiredness and fatigue (which are often associated with seizures).
