All about Migraine Diet

Foods To Avoid For Migraine Relief:

> Foods high in Tyramine or Phenylethylamine:

While everyone has differing food triggers, Tyramine and Phenylethylamine are common food triggers in migraine cases.

Processed meats, nuts, seeds, and aged cheese all contain these amino acids.Tyramine is also found in red wine, which is a known migraine trigger.

> Nitrates:

Nitrates, found in cured meats such as bacon, hot dogs, and salami, are triggers that can cause migraine headaches. Vegetables such as spinach, lettuce, and radishes also have high levels of Nitrates.

> Sulphites:

Prunes, figs, Apricots, and certain grape juices are Sulphite rich, and may be migraine food triggers.

> MSG:

MSG ( monosodium glutamate ) is a flavor enhancer that is to be avoided in migraine treatment.

> Aspartame:

Also known as Nutrasweet, this artificial sweetener is believed to be a migraine trigger.

> Alcohol:

Excessive amounts of alcohol can cause migraine headaches because of the high levels of Tyramine that alcoholic beverages contain.

The Migraine Diet:

These are foods that have been shown to reduce the frequency, intensity, and duration of migraine headaches.

> Fish:

Eating fish that is high in Omega-3 Fatty Acids ( Pacific Herring, Mackerel, Albacore Tuna, Salmon ) will lower the production of Prostaglandins, chemicals that may cause inflammation in the body, which can be a major cause of migraines.

> Foods Rich In Magnesium:

Soy milk, seafood, and black beans all have high levels of magnesium, a mineral that is important for blood pressure, heart rhythm, and helps with migraine relief.

> Tryptophan:

Turkey, black-eyed peas, whole grains, and walnuts are high in Tryptophan. The amino acid Tryptophan contributes in the production of Serotonin, a neurotransmitter that reduces the frequency of migraines.
