Can Ginger Treat and Prevent Migraines?

“Migraines: The one word that can make a beautiful day into the worst day you have experienced.”

For anyone you suffered from migraines, know they are not just a headache but a dark shadow of pain that follows you around and often not surrendering until you’re in bed in a dark room with zero energy and appetite.

Migraine is a complex condition with a wide variety of symptoms. For many of us the main indicator is a painful headache. Other symptoms include disturbed vision, sensitivity to light, sound, and smells, feeling sick and vomiting. Migraine attacks can be very frightening as it can last for hours, days or even weeks.

I suffered from migraines for many years and was given lots of different medication to help treat it but that just added unpleasant side effects to the mix, which is why I turned to natural remedies.

When we were formulated Super Curcumin, Ginger was a herb that was I keen to include due to the amount of studies and research that found Ginger to be effective in treating migraines.

One study showed that a mixture of ginger and feverfew could produce significant migraine relief in 63 percent of 208 patients within two hours.



The study was based on a 2005 migraine study in which 48 percent of patients became pain free and another 34 percent of patients reduced their migraines to only mild headaches after ingesting ginger and feverfew.

Top 3 Reasons why Ginger can prevent Migraines:

Number 1

In July of 2016, a study found that ginger significantly reduces a peptide called CGRP. CGRP is associated with triggering migraines, migraine drug killers work to block this peptide.

Why Block CGRP when Ginger can reduce from even being released in the first place?


Number 2

Ginger is well known for reducing oxidative stress.

Migraine sufferers have elevated levels of oxidative stress and oxidative stress is the largest migraine trigger.


Number 3

Inflammation is associated with migraines and anti-inflammatory medications are used to treat migraines

Ginger is well known to fight inflammation.


How to use Ginger to fight and prevent migraines?

Most of the promising research on the beneficial effects of ginger for migraine used supplements that contain ginger root extract or dried ginger powder. Therefore, ginger supplements are the most likely form of ginger to alleviate symptoms of headaches and migraines.

You need to look for 250mg of Ginger Powder or 25 mg of Ginger Root Extract to ensure you are getting the right amount. A 2014 study found that 250 mg of a ginger powder supplement decreased migraine symptoms about as well as the prescription drug sumatriptan.   Sumatriptan is a leading prescription migraine medication.  

Ginger is an ancient Chinese remedy and has been used to fight migraines for centuries, new research demonstrates that ginger may be one of the most powerful ways to treat and prevent migraines. It really can compete with multibillion drug companies.
