5 Foods That Reduce Headaches

Be it chronic headaches or general bouts, these foods are known to have positive effects on the pain

Headaches are not a joke. People suffering from migraines would relate to this. But you don't need to have this condition to get headaches. There can be times when you just feel your head paining for a reason you don't know. 

In such cases, if you want some easy remedies, turn to a diet that helps you sooth the pain. If the pain is persisting for too long, we advise you to consult a doctor. However, if you want some quick and natural fix to a paining head, this list is made for you. 

Here are the top 5 food items you can try to reduce your headache.  

1. Yogurt 

Though it feels like a simple measure, it is effective. Yogurt offers a high level of riboflavin - a part of the B vitamin complex that has shown to help reduce the pain of migraines in people who regularly suffer from them. Eggs also provide a level of vitamin B. 

2. Spinach 

Popeye was not a stupid boy. Spinach contains good levels of magnesium - which has been found to be effective in relieving migraines. When it comes to measurement, you get 24 milligrams of magnesium in just one cup. Regular magnesium intake has been shown to have the ability to reduce migraine attacks by 41.2 percent. 

3. Ginger 

This is has been a popular root when it comes to medicinal properties. People take it with kadak chai and the world is suddenly a better place. When it come to the effects, research says that ginger has the ability to block prostaglandins (neurotransmitters that play a role in painful swelling) that might cause slight swelling in the brain. This root can help fight migraines. 

4. Watermelon

One of the major causes of a headache can be dehydration. Water-rich foods are some of the simplest and the most effective remedies out there. Instead of popping a painkiller, go for a juicy watermelon to help you with your paining head. Other foods with high water content include berries, cucumber, melon, soups, oatmeal. 

5. Chocolate 

Yeah, a lot of girls out there will approve of this one. Chocolate has a high level of magenesim content - which helps relive a throbbing head. Mainly it works with relaxing muscle tension. You can take magnesium in pills too, but a natural diet is leans more on the healthier side of things. Go for dark chocolate.
