Magnesium is... great for headaches

Did you know that Magnesium is not only helpful in relaxing your muscles but can actually help with headaches too?

Headaches can be a sign of stress: hunched shoulders, tight neck muscles – we all know the effects stress can have on our bodies. But did you know that the tension can actually spread to the dozen muscles of our scalp and create headaches?⁣

Magnesium can lessen the tension and help muscles relax which helps ease tension headaches. Magnesium is not only great for helping with tension-related headaches but also with migraines, PMS headaches and post-traumatic headaches.

1️⃣ Magnesium relaxes the blood vessels and allows them to dilate, reducing the spasms and constrictions that can cause migraines⁣.

2️⃣ Magnesium regulates the actions of brain neurotransmitters and inflammatory substances. When unbalanced, those play a big role in migraines⁣.

3️⃣ Magnesium inhibits excess platelet aggregation, preventing the formation of tiny clots that can block blood vessels and cause pain⁣.

4️⃣ Magnesium relaxes muscles and prevents the build-up of lactic acid which can worsen the pain⁣.
