Diet Rich in Omega-3s Linked to Fewer Migraines, Less Pain
09/07 - A diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids reduces the frequency and intensity of monthly migraine attacks, a new study suggests. In this interventional study, a diet high in omega-3 was associated with two fewer headache days per month, and a diet high in omega-3 and low in omega-6 cut monthly migraine days by four.
"This is the first moderate-sized, controlled trial showing that targeted changes in diet can decrease physical pain," study investigator Christopher Ramsden, MD, with the National Institute on Aging and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, told Medscape Medical News.
"With additional study, it may ultimately be possible to design better diets and integrate targeted dietary changes alongside medications to improve the lives of patients with chronic pain," said Ramsden.
