4 Powerful Nutrients for Fighting Migraines

Healthy Fats
Adding certain kinds of fats into your diet may help reduce inflammation, which is thought to exacerbate migraine pain. Omega-3 fatty acids, which are most concentrated in fatty fish, and the monounsaturated fats found in olive oil have both been shown to reduce the frequency, duration, and severity of headaches. I recommend eating fresh wild salmon high in omega-3s at least two times per week and adding other omega-3 foods (eggs fortified with omega-3 are a versatile choice) as a regular part of your diet. Try to use olive oil or canola oil when cooking and baking.
