Your Genes May Just Be The Cause of Your Head Pain

Yes, your genes may be causing you a world of hurt, yet there is a solution if that is the case. A gene that has been known by the acronym, MTHFR (methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase), is now known to make people susceptible to migraine attacks when a mutation is present.

The great news is that a high-quality B complex that is rich in folic acid can be a natural solution for many sufferers of migraine headaches. According to Australian researchers, they found that B12, folic acid and B6 specifically can produce a two-fold reduction in migraine disability.

This is important news for all of us, since I recommend that everyone even with a little bit of stress in their lives increase their B vitamins, since when stress levels go up, upping the “B vitamins” often called the stress vitamins, helps a person stay calm, collected and coping. And now as a bonus, it may just help keep a headache at bay.

And if that was not a good enough reason to take a good B complex on a daily basis, a key additional benefit is that it will help keep your homocysteine levels in check, which when increased, increases your chance of losing your mind to dementia, losing your bones to osteoporosis and losing your heart to unnecessary damage…

“To be, or not to B”, now there is no question. We must all “B” vitamin supplement.
