Pounding Headache? Reach for this Potent Mineral

In All Health Watch, General Health

We’ve all been there…

The moment a pounding headache digs in and makes you feel like you’ve been hit by a truck!

Your head is throbbing in pain… you’re extra sensitive to light… you have trouble seeing… and you even feel like vomiting!

If this has happened to you, you’re not alone! In fact, it’s reported that half of all people in the WORLD experience headaches.

Most folks reach for over-the-counter medicine for relief… unfortunately, that relief NEVER comes quick enough!

But you don’t have to suffer any longer.

Today, I’m here to tell you that fighting back against a pounding headache doesn’t mean you need to cross your fingers in hopes that an OTC remedy works…

It turns out, all your body needs is a little more of this potent mineral.

Magnesium: The Natural Headache Remedy

Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body and it is necessary for countless functions, including blood sugar control and nerve transmission.

However, you might be one of the millions of Americans not getting enough of it… even WITH a healthy diet.

See, evidence suggests that magnesium deficiency is more common in people who get frequent migraine headaches, compared to those who don’t.

Studies have shown that treatment with 600 mg of oral magnesium citrate per day helped reduce both the frequency and severity of migraine headaches.

And in one study, supplementing with just 1 gram of magnesium provided relief from an acute migraine attack more quickly and effectively than a common medication.

Compare that to ibuprofen — a common OTC medication used to treat headaches. The recommended dose of ibuprofen is 400 mg every four hours.

That’s a whopping 2,400 mg in a day… all for relief that may NEVER come!

Magnesium is widely available both as a supplement AND in countless foods.

Reliable magnesium supplements can be found at health food stores and online retailers. And foods like pumpkin seeds, spinach, and even mouthwatering dark chocolate are chock full of magnesium.

So, the next time you feel a pounding headache coming on… don’t reach for OTC meds… give magnesium a try!
