June is Migraine Awareness Month

Did you know that Riboflavin has been shown in clinical studies to cut migraine frequency in half when taken daily?

Studies show Riboflavin can reduce the number of migraines suffered by over half

The 2014 theme for Migraine & Headache Awareness Month (MHAM) is “Dreaming of a World without Headache and Migraine.” Migraine Proof was founded on the idea that migraines can be avoided. We too dream of a world without migraines and headaches.

Migraine Proof was founded by migraine sufferers Dr. John Clark, MD and Lynn Urbanic a Pediatric Open Heart Surgical Nurse. Both of their lives have been impacted greatly by migraines. Being medical professionals one of our primary goals at Migraine Proof is to educate migraine sufferers of the many different forms of help that are available to them, including natural supplements. We wanted to use this blog post to focus on one of the ingredients in Migraine Proof and how it has helped many migraine sufferers already.

Riboflavin is commonly found in many foods as well as B complex supplements. Our bodies require Riboflavin for a wide variety of cellular processes and it is an important component in our bodies energy metabolism. Riboflavin has a characteristic bright yellow color when found in supplements and orange when found in solid vitamins. Because of this, Riboflavin is sometimes used as a food color additive.

Low mitochondrial energy may play a role in the cause of migraines. Riboflavin plays an important role in how our bodies get energy from carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Many clinical studies have shown that taking high doses of Riboflavin daily can significantly reduce the number of migraines one has. In one study the number of abortive drugs were also significantly decreased in patients that were taking high dose Riboflavin.

Migraine Proof contains 200mg of Riboflavin in one daily recommended dose, which is much higher than would be found in multivitamins, B complex vitamins or foods high in Riboflavin. Migraine Proof is intended to be taken twice a day like a vitamin. It is formulated to produce results within the first 30 days of use. Migraine Proof can be used with prescription migraine medication or by itself. Talk to your physician to see if Migraine Proof can help with your migraines and headaches. Be sure to help raise awareness of migraines this month by using the Twitter hashtags #MHAM, #BeatMigraines and #MigraineProof
