Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) and Migraine: the Bridge over Troubled Mitochondria
Professor Bruno Colombo is a neurologist at San Raphaele Hospital, part of the University of Vita-Salute, Milan, Italy. He has found a defect in mitochondria can reduce the threshold for migraine attacks. He has found riboflavin, a cofactor in oxidative metabolism, may be able to overcome this impaired function of the mitochondria.
Riboflavin, or vitamin B2, is an important micronutrients found in milk, eggs, organ meats, malted barley, leafy vegetables and particularly, yeast.
Migraine is a common, painful and ultimately disabling condition. It is characterized by recurrent, moderate to severe headaches. Migraine symptoms vary widely between individuals. Attacks may last from four to 72 hours with highly variable frequency. Other clinical symptoms such as blurred vision, vertigo, or hallucination may accompany the headache attacks. 54% of migraine patients report that migraines have a major adverse effect on both their home and work lives.
