In 2009, a literature review of preclinical and clinical studies of any type on food triggers, vitamins, supplements, and migraine headaches was performed. This study found that the identification of food triggers, with the help of food diaries, is an inexpensive way to reduce migraine headaches. Finally, the authors recommend the use of the following supplements in the preventative treatment of migraines, in decreasing order of preference: magnesium, petasites, hybridus, feverfew, coenzyme Q10, riboflavin, and alpha lipoic acid.
