We all know the importance of getting our greens in to enjoy optimal health so it should come as no surprise that Popeye’s favorite type of greens can help alleviate migraines. Packed with B-vitamins, magnesium, and other important micronutrients, spinach should be on your plate if you wish to get rid of a migraine or a serious headache. These vitamins and minerals prevent and reduce the frequency of migraines due to their positive effect on the two main causes of migraines, impaired mitochondrial functions (the breakdown of nutrients to produce energy) and a high level of homocysteine, an amino acid.
In other words, eating spinach does your brain and body good so make sure to eat it regularly. Need recipe ideas?
