In a study published in the medical journal Cephalgia in 1996, patients were given either 600 mg of magnesium daily for twelve weeks or a placebo. There was a significant drop in migraine frequency in the magnesium group. A study published in the medical journal Headache in 1991 showed similar effects in women with menstrual-related migraines. Recommended daily dose:
Take 150 to 200 mg of magnesium in the morning and again with dinner or at bedtime (use sustained-release magnesium if diarrhea is a problem).
