Study shows the 1 thing you should be doing to help your headaches
If you experience frequent headaches or migraines, you’re not alone. More than four million people suffer from daily chronic headaches. Your temples could be throbbing in pain. You could feel like crying. And 90 percent of sufferers are unable to function normally because of the severe symptoms.
If you experience frequent chronic headaches, you’re in luck. There’s a new trick to relieve the pain and cut down on the number of headaches you have per month.
Take Your Vitamins
A study published by the U.S. National Library of Medicine recommends individuals who suffer from frequent chronic headaches to take a daily vitamin B2 supplement. It’s that simple!
In the study, patients received 400 mg of riboflavin (vitamin B2) once a day for six months. The results were astounding, as the patients were experiencing half as many headaches as before the study. While the symptoms weren’t less severe, at least they weren’t suffering from migraines every day.
That’s an improvement, right?
How Much You Should Take
The study recommends you should only take a daily supplement. Pretty soon, the supplement will help decrease your headaches. But don’t increase your dose before speaking to a doctor.
But you’re in luck because vitamin B2 is found in many natural food products, including eggs, almonds, lamb, milk, yogurt, and spinach. Add these food products to your daily diet, and you’ll be receiving plenty of vitamin B2.
Other Ways To Help
There are plenty of other ways to help ease chronic daily headaches. You should get enough sleep, exercise regularly, reduce daily consumption of caffeine, don’t skip meals, and reduce stress.
Keep a headache diary to record what triggered your headaches. If you notice you woke up with a headache, that’s an indicator you didn’t receive enough sleep. If you notice symptoms after a long day at work, then you know you’re stressed. Keep track of what is causing your headaches, and this will help you determine the best strategy to ease the pain.
Oh, and of course, the vitamin B2 supplement. We can’t forget that!
