Numerous studies have shown that nutritional approaches can play important roles in the prevention and control of migraine headaches. Nutrients shown to be particularly helpful include vitamin D, vitamin B6 and folate, and omega-3 fatty acids.

Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) supplements have been found to be especially effective. In a study published online in the Journal of Clinical Pharmacy and Therapeutics in 2017, researchers examined a total of 11 clinical trials involving doses of up to 400 mg per day. They concluded that riboflavin is a “promising therapeutic modality in the prevention of migraine headaches.”

In reality, however, riboflavin has been known to be effective against migraines since as long ago as 1946. To learn more, including why the world hasn’t been told about this for more than three-quarters of a century, see this article on our website.
