|Almonds and Cashews are a good source of magnesium|
So when it comes to non-migraine pain, I do my best to stay away from the pills.
I've learned recently that nuts that are rich in magnesium, like almonds and cashews, are a great way to nip a headache in the bud if you catch it early.
Apparently magnesium is known to help relax blood vessels which is one way to stop a pesky headache from becoming unbearable.
According to Woman's Day Magazine (2 May 2016) "headache sufferers who upped their magnesium intake reduced attacks by 41.6 per cent".
Now if you're a fair dinkum migraine sufferer, the whole nuts thing may not help you, because some migraine sufferers note nuts as a trigger. Which stuffs this whole blog post totally.
But if it's just a plain old fashioned headache you've got, then perhaps give almonds and cashews a try! At the very least you'll be increasing your Vitamin E, copper, Vitamin B2, phosophorus, fibre, biotin and manganese intake.
This is just another way to help us all age positively.
