Magnesium is a mineral naturally found in the foods we eat and it’s a required cofactor for more than 300 processes in your body. Because of magnesium’s role in optimal health, a deficiency can lead to numerous health conditions, including chronic migraines.
Given that roughly half the American population is deficient in magnesium, this is a problem that warrants further discussion.
Current scientific evidence indicates that up to half of all chronic migraine sufferers suffer from low magnesium intake. This can likely be attributed to the increased consumption of processed foods and declining soil conditions in America.
Fortunately, magnesium is relatively inexpensive to supplement and is usually one of the first remedies recommended when it comes to chronic migraine treatment.
