Below is an excellent article discussing the use of natural supplements as preventatives for migraine featured on nationalmigrainecentre.org.uk.

“Many natural products, vitamins, vitamin like chemicals and plant remedies have been tried in order to prevent migraine. The ones we discuss in this factsheet are those which have at least some research studies to justify their use. This doesn’t mean that other things don’t work, but we often lack research evidence for them. Unfortunately with limited funding for research available, the studies that have been done are often both small and few in number. This means we do not have as much information as we need in order to make firm treatment recommendations. The advice in this guide is based on the research that is available, but inevitably this limits the quailty of advice we are able to give.
“In this factsheet we consider plant remedies Feverfew and Butterbur and the chemicals Magnesium, Coenzyme Q10 and Riboflavin (Vitamin B2).”

N.B. I presently take Magnesium, Saw Palmetto and Fish Liver Oils specifically for my migraines. After this article I plan to add CO Q10 and Vitamin B2.
Be sure to speak with your doctor before adding any supplements to your diet.
