Do you frequently suffer from migraines?
Supplementation of CoQ10 has been found to have beneficial effect on the condition of some patients suffering from migraine headaches. A study in 2005 found that CoQ10 treatment for migraine reduced attack frequency, headache days and days with nausea by the third month of treatment. The supplement has been used effectively in the prophylaxis of migraine, especially in combination with a daily supplement of magnesium citrate 500 mg and riboflavin (vitamin B12) 400 mg.
