June 13 2016. A study reported on June 10, 2016 at the 58th Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Headache Society, held in San Diego, found deficiencies of several nutrients in a young population with migraine headaches.

In their poster presentation, Suzanne Hagler, MD, of the University of Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and colleagues note than a reduction in migraine has been observed or suspected in association with increased levels several nutritional compounds. The current study examined data from children, teenagers and young adults who had undergone blood testing for riboflavin, folate, vitamin D and CoQ10. A small percentage of the subjects were subsequently treated with nutritional supplements, if levels were found to be low.

Ninety-one percent of the subjects had vitamin D levels of 40 ng/mL or less and 83% had CoQ10 concentrations of 0.7 mcg/mL or less—levels at which the researchers indicated that supplementation is recommended. Dr Hagler's team discovered a greater likeliness of vitamin D deficiency in boys and young men with migraine and an increase in CoQ10 deficiencies among girls and young women with the condition. Chronic migraine patients were likelier to be deficient in riboflavin and CoQ10 than subjects with sporadic migraine.

Due to the fact that few of the patients received supplements to treat their deficiencies, the researchers could not evaluate their effectiveness in migraine prevention.

"Vitamin deficiencies may be implicated in the perpetuation of migraines, but the relationships are still poorly understood," Dr Hagler and colleagues conclude. "Further studies are needed to elucidate whether vitamin supplementation is effective in migraine patients in general, and whether patients with mild deficiency are more likely to benefit from supplementation."

Clinical trials show a reduction in migraine attacks amongst 48% of participants after 3 months of supplementation with 300mg ubiquinone CoQ10. Selecting a pharmaceutical-grade ubiquinone like the one used successfully in the clinical trials will increase your odds of successfully reducing migraines or relieving them altogether. http://healthandscience.eu/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=747:can-q10-supplements-prevent-migraines-us&catid=20&lang=us&Itemid=374

Ubiquinone vs Ubiquinol
Posted by: Sandy10m

Most of us with ME/CFS, FM, and migraines are not able to utilize the Ubiquinone because it requires an enzyme to process it to the usable form of Ubiquinol. The way I remember this is that "Ubiqui-none you get none and Ubiquin-ol you get all". Big difference between the two types.
