What is a Magnesium Migraine?

A magnesium migraine may be due to a low level of magnesium.

Ninety percent of people that are checked, that suffer with migraines, often have low levels of magnesium.

You need to take five hundred mg of magnesium a day through your diet and a supplement. This could reduce the amount of attacks you get.

But once one gets a migraine, one can't take a magnesium supplement, and take the headache away. It won't have that effect. Magnesium also works well with women as a preventive measure for those that get migraines as part of their menstrual cycle.
