Migraine, also known as migraine headache, is a neurological disorder that causes, among other things, recurrent severe headaches. Natural vital substances can help relieve symptoms and reduce the frequency of attacks.

The headaches are piercing, plus nausea and vomiting, sensitivity to sounds, light and smells, and worsening with any physical activity, even movement. Do you know this feeling? Then you may be suffering from migraines. Migraine is a widespread condition characterised by a periodic, recurring, seizure-like, pulsating and hemiplegic headache that may be accompanied by additional symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light (photophobia) or sound (phonophobia). It is a type of primary headache where the pain itself is the main problem and is not caused by another underlying condition. 14.8 percent of women and six percent of men in Germany are affected by migraine, in addition to 13.7 percent of women and 12 percent of men with probable migraine.

Headaches accompanying migraines have been known since the Stone Age, and the ancient Greeks, Ancient Egyptians and Babylonians were concerned with getting this annoying condition under control. Many scholars over the next few centuries studied the treatment of headaches. The first comprehensive description of the symptoms of a migraine with a half-sided headache as well as sweating, nausea and vomiting was documented by Aretaios in the second century. He thus simultaneously distinguished migraine from other forms of headache.

"In some patients, a migraine attack is preceded by the so-called migraine aura, during which visual or sensory perceptual disturbances in particular occur. It occurs in about 15 to 20 percent of migraine attacks and is the decisive diagnostic criterion for distinguishing between a classic migraine with aura and a common migraine without aura," says Natura Vitalis founder Frank Felte (www.naturavitalis.de). The company from Essen has long been considered one of the leading manufacturers of natural food supplements and places the highest value on continuous further and new developments of health products on a scientific basis.

The treatment of migraine aims to relieve pain, reduce the frequency and severity of attacks and improve the daily life of the sufferer. Treatment can be medication or non-drug. Painkillers, triptans, antiemetics and preventive medications may be prescribed, depending on the severity and frequency of migraine attacks. "However, natural ways to reduce the duration, severity and frequency of migraine attacks also exist. These include coenzyme Q10, magnesium and vitamin B2 in particular. These are micronutrients that intervene in certain energy metabolism processes and can positively influence the course of migraine attacks. By the way, as non-pharmacological measures, those affected are also recommended to get regular sleep, reduce stress, reduce alcohol consumption and avoid trigger factors," emphasises Frank Felte.

Vitamin B (riboflavin) fulfils far-reaching tasks in protein and energy metabolism and has a positive effect on the so-called mitochondrial energy metabolism. If the mitochondria, the power plants of our body, are no longer fully functional, numerous diseases can result. Migraine is one of them. A study shows: Patients who received 400 mg of vitamin B2 daily over a period of three months had a reduced frequency of migraine attacks (from 3.8 to 1.8), and the duration and severity of the attacks were also significantly reduced by taking vitamin B2. In the test persons who received a placebo instead of the high vitamin B2 dose, the frequency of attacks was unchanged.

The Natura Vitalis product "Vitamin B Complex" (https://www.naturavitalis.de/Vitamin-B-Komplex-HOCHDOSIERT.html) brings together eight B vitamins, each in high doses, under orthomolecular aspects in one formula. "With this, we support the fight against migraine", Frank Felte points out.
