Magnesium and Vitamin B2 Injections for Migraines.
The ideal medication for prevention and treatment of migraine would have no side effects, no risk, would be safe in pregnancy, as well as being highly effective while remaining inexpensive. Magnesium comes closer than many interventions on all these fronts. Studies have shown that between 68-75% of Americans are Magnesium deficient.
Our Magnesium injections contain Magnesium, Vitamin B2 and our proprietary vitamin blend to naturally eliminate headaches before they arrive. Magnesium along with Vitamin B2 is the most natural way to get rid of a headache.
Magnesium: A chronic lack of magnesium in the body yields many consequences – including low energy levels. Symptoms of magnesium deficiency include fatigue, weakness, anxiety, irritability and headaches. Research on red blood cells has shown that lower levels of magnesium can make the cells more fragile – leading to a decrease in available red blood cells. Red blood cells are vital for increasing your energy levels because they deliver needed oxygen to tissues. A 2002 study also revealed that low magnesium levels disrupt the body’s efficiency for using energy stores. The researchers assessed the effects of dietary magnesium restriction during exercise in postmenopausal women. They found low magnesium levels led to higher oxygen use and higher heart rates during exercise. This suggests magnesium helps to optimize the use of oxygen in order to burn calories and feel more energized, and a lower level of magnesium hinders that process.
Vitamin B2: Several studies suggest that people who get migraines may reduce how often they get migraines and how long they last by taking riboflavin.
If you answer yes to any of the following questions, your headaches may be a result of low magnesium intake:
1) Do you drink carbonated beverages?
Most dark colored sodas contain phosphates. These substances actually bind with magnesium inside the digestive tract, rendering it unavailable to the body. So even if you are eating a balanced diet, by drinking soda with your meals you are flushing magnesium out of your system
2) Do you regularly eat pastries, cakes and other desserts?
Refined sugar is not only a zero magnesium product but it also causes the body to excrete magnesium through the kidneys. The process of producing refined sugar from sugar cane removes molasses, stripping the magnesium content entirely.
3) Do you experience a lot of stress in your life?
Stress can be a cause of magnesium deficiency, and a lack of magnesium tends to magnify the stress reaction, worsening the problem. In studies, adrenaline and cortisol, byproducts of the “fight or flight” reaction associated with stress and anxiety, were associated with decreased magnesium.
4) Do you drink coffee, tea or caffeinated beverages daily?
Magnesium levels are controlled in the body in large part by the kidneys, which filter and excrete excess magnesium and other minerals. But caffeine causes the kidneys to release extra magnesium regardless of body status.
Magnisium/B2 Injections are recommended 1-2 times per week.
