Magnesium & Migraines - There is a Relationship!

Do you Suffer from Migraines? Studies indicate that being Low in Magnesium may Contribute to Migraines.

Two double blind research studies have evidence showing that being low in magnesium intake can be a contributor to those folks who suffer from migraine headaches. If you are one of the millions of Americans who suffer from migraines, you could benefit substantially with high grade magnesium supplementation such as Active 8. In a study conducted by the Department of Neurology and Clinical Neurophysiology, Munich-Harlaching Clinic, in Germany; of 81 patients, researchers found that the frequency of migraine attacks were reduced by 41% in weeks 9-12 of the study. The number of days that the subjects experienced the symptoms of the migraines also significantly decreased in the group that took the magnesium supplementation.1

In a 1998 article research review by A. Mauskop and B.M. Altura, they stated "The importance of magnesium in the pathogenesis of migraine headaches has been clearly established by a large number of clinical and experimental studies." Researchers are still not exactly clear as to how low magnesium levels play a role in migraine development, but magnesium concentration in the brain affects serotonin receptors, synthesis and release of nitric oxide, the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors, and other receptors and neurotransmitters that are migraine-related . According to Mauskop and Altura in their review, as many as 50% of patients studied were found to have lowered levels of  magnesium in their system while experiencing an acute migraine attack. When these patients were given a high dosage of magnesium, it resulted in a swift and continuous relief of their acute migraines.2 

While Active 8 does not claim to diagnose or treat any disease and you should consult with your doctor if unsure as to whether you should take Active 8; these research studies indicate that it is possible that if you suffer from migraines that you could experience the same benefits of magnesium supplementation. Active 8 is primarily composed of the highest quality magnesium available in one of the most absorbable forms possible. It is 100% guaranteed, fully refundable if you are not satisfied for any reason. Click here if you would like to order Active 8.
