The symptoms of migraine headaches — nausea, throbbing pain, light and noise sensitivity 一 can make it hard to manage daily life. Not to mention, migraine attacks can last up to 48-72 hours, taking you out of commission for days at a time.
Although prescription medications can help prevent migraine attacks, they come with potential side effects, such as dizziness, confusion, weight gain, and dry mouth . The good news is that there are many lifestyle adjustments and alternative strategies you can take to alleviate migraine pain.
As a headache and pain management specialist, Dr. Benjamin Taimoorazy has developed a nutritional supplement to help possibly stop migraines before they develop. And the best part 一 this supplement is available online (www.getmiguard.com) and also here at Beverly Hills Migraine and Pain Management Institute in Beverly Hills and Northridge, California.
Here’s what you need to know about MiGuard and migraine relief.
Migraines and nutrition: what’s the link?
While you might have a list of migraine triggers (chocolate, red wine, cheese, bright lights, MSG, etc.), it’s important to know what’s happening in your brain to cause a migraine in the first place. Researchers have found that individuals are more likely to experience a migraine (whether they are exposed to a trigger or not) if:
- The brain has increased oxidative stress
- The brain has decreased antioxidant levels
A lack of specific nutrients can contribute to both oxidative stress and low antioxidant levels in your brain 一 two conditions that impact the health of your brain down to the very mitochondria in your brain cells. Mitochondria are the powerhouses in your cells, and if they are negatively affected, this can trigger a cascade of events that leads to migraines.
That’s where nutritional supplements come into play. The right supplement can help support your brain cells and stop the cascade of events that lead to migraines.
What is MiGuard?
MiGuard is a drug-free, nutritional headache supplement that helps prevent headaches before they start. MiGuard is:
- An over-the-counter nutritional supplement packaged in vegetarian capsules
- Made from non-GMO, vegan, and certified gluten-free ingredients
- Easily and quickly absorbed by your gastrointestinal tract
- Non-habit forming
MiGuard contains all-natural ingredients that have been demonstrated by the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) and the American Headache Society (AHS) to potentially prevent and treat migraine headaches. Examples of these ingredients include Feverfew, Ginger, Vitamin B2, Alpha-lipoic acid, Magnesium, and Coenzyme Q10.
Not only does MiGuard contain the highest quality of natural ingredients, but it’s also produced with high standards in a pristine FDA-registered facility right here in the United States.
How does MiGuard work?
MiGuard may decrease your brain’s sensitivity to migraine triggers, and may interrupt the cascade of neurological events that leads to your headaches.
Vitamin B2 is an essential antioxidant vitamin that promotes healthy cell activity. This vitamin may help prevent migraine attacks by boosting your mitochondrial energy reserves. And because people with low energy reserves in their mitochondria are more likely to experience headaches, fortifying these energy reserves is a good step toward preventing future headaches.
Another study showed that taking ginger and feverfew together can help control migraines, and MiGuard contains both. Magnesium has been shown to reduce migraine significantly Together, these ingredients create a powerful defense against migraine headaches.
Is MiGuard right for you?
Nutritional headache supplements are just one approach to reducing your number of migraine days each month. You might consider a nutritional headache supplement if:
- You want a drug-free headache treatment
- You have chronic headaches and migraine attacks that interfere with your quality of life
