For Migraine Headaches?
April 3, 2014
No one knows for sure what is happening when migraine occurs. One theory is that some migraines are the result of blood vessels constricting (getting narrower). L-Arginine seems to be a helpful vasodilator (makes blood vessels open wider).
Another theory is that some migraines start off with blood vessels dilating. This supplement would be likely to aggravate such migraines.
Another theory is that some migraines begin with blood vessels constricting, and then they dilate. Again, this supplement might make them worse.
This is why treating migraines requires some trial and error. Some neurologists can help you to make intelligent decisions about what to try first.
According to the National Institute for Health, "Taking L-arginine by mouth along with the painkiller ibuprofen seems to be effective for treating migraine headache. This combination sometimes starts to work within 30 minutes. But it’s hard to know how much of the pain relief is due to L-arginine, since ibuprofen can relieve migraine pain on its own."
