Migraine headaches can often be associated with discomfort, nausea, emesis, photophobia and visual sensory changes, and are linked to a number of genes, including those involved in regulating the vascular system. Most simply, migraine headaches are thought to be associated with mitochondrial dysfunction in cells. The mitochondrion is the powerhouse of all cells, as it is the location of energy production in the body. Regular supplementation with CoQ10, an electron carrier, as a prophylactic is believed to restore mitochondria dysfunction, leading to a reduction in migraine frequency. Magnesium and riboflavin play an important role in this process, as these nutrients are required for the proper function of ATP-synthase and as a source of cofactors in the electron transport chain, respectively.
