With the power to stop you in your tracks, migraines often hurt on one side of your head and can also make you sensitive to light or feel nauseated.
What to eat:
Research has shown that riboflavin, or vitamin B2, can help reduce the incidence of migraines by up to 50 percent. Riboflavin improves your brain’s energy metabolism and its muscle cells, protecting them and helping them maintain energy. Aim for about 400 mg a day in foods like quinoa, crimini mushrooms, asparagus – even a glass of low-fat milk, which is about 30 percent of the recommended daily allowance.
