        <p>Correcting dietary insufficiencies may help reduce headache
frequency for migraine sufferers. Many migraine sufferers find relief
by adding vitamin supplements to their daily regimen.</p>
<p>Taking vitamin B2, also known as riboflavin, has been shown in
numerous studies to help reduce the number of migraine attacks people
suffer from. Initial studies involved a high dosage of 400mg. This is
two hundred times the amount of B2 in a typical diet. The high dosage
involved caused a rare side effect of vitamin B2 supplementation to show
itself; diarrhea.</p>
<p>In 2005, a new study measured the effectiveness of B2 at much lower
doses, only 25mg a day. This lower dose was just as effective at
reducing migraine frequency as the higher dose used in earlier
<p>Riboflavin has the potential to enhance energy production in brain
cells. Migraine sufferers tend to have impaired energy production in
cells in their brains and supplementing with riboflavin may help.</p>
<p>Magnesium, another nutrient important to energy production, is also
proven to reduce migraine frequency among sufferers. Diuretics,
alcohol, and chronic medical conditions all deplete magnesium in the
body. Adding magnesium-rich foods to their diet, things like spinach,
bananas, nuts, and whole-grain cereals, helps many migraine sufferers
restore this vital mineral to their system.</p>
<p>If dietary changes don't help, a dose of up to 400mg of magnesium per
day may help. Migraine sufferers should be careful not to overdo it
with both dietary changes and supplementation. Signs of magnesium
overdosing include drowsiness, lethargy, and diarrhea.</p>
<p>Another potentially helpful supplement is vitamin E. Vitamin E aids
in circulation and 400 IU (international units) daily helps many migraine
sufferers reduce the frequency of their headaches. Fish oil pills with
the right balance of omega-3 fatty acids are believed to lessen the
intensity of an existing migraine and help stave them off.</p>
<p>Consult with a doctor before adding any supplements to your regular
treatment plan.</p>
