The top 3 herbals I recommend for migraines include B2 400 mg/day, Coenzyme q10 >120 mg and magnesium. Now a proprietary med has put in all 3 and got 30% less headache days.
Gaul, Charly, et al.
Improvement of migraine symptoms with a proprietary supplement containing riboflavin, magnesium and Q10: a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, multicenter trial.
The journal of headache and pain 16.1 (2015): 32.
- B2 400 mg/day
- Co-enzyme q10 150 mg
- Magnesium 600 mg
- multiple other nutrients
- Reduced headaches days 6.2 to 4.4 (30% reduction)
- minimal intensity changes
- “No patient in the placebo group rated the efficacy as very good, whereas 18% of the patients treated with [active treatment] rated the efficacy as very good. Nearly half of the patients in the placebo group rated the efficacy as poor (43.9%) compared to only 29.1% in the active treatment group.”
Comments – would have hoped for more but did not directly deal with several triggers – diet, sleep, stress, neck and TMJ
