The occurrence of migraine among adults is widespread, and it is more prevalent among women at 3:1 ratio, according to a clinical study. In the US, an estimated 37 million individuals suffer from migraines. Unfortunately, the cause of this condition is still unknown; however, experts linked migraine to genetics and free radicals.
The recent report from the Sun, a UK newspaper, reported on free-radicals as one of the triggers to migraine. The reported said that a researcher, Dr. Borkum, from the University of Maine, found out that oxidative stress, also termed as biological rust, causes wear and tear damage to the DNA. The oxidized molecules – the free radicals – destroy the protein and the rest of the cell structures, which can trigger migraine.
Oxidative stress is activated by dehydration, noise, sleep disturbance, some chemicals found in the food, infection, alcohol, and possibly the artificial sweeter aspartame. (See link below)
Could the result of the research pave the way to treat migraine?
The result of the research is a step towards a migraine cure, although further studies were recommended.
Oxidative stress, which is directly linked to cellular damage, is delayed by antioxidants. The main role of an antioxidant is to prevent damage in the cell. These antioxidant molecules can safely terminate the chain reaction before an important molecule is damaged, according to Rice.edu.
Potent Antioxidant from American muscadine grapes.
Topping the list of antioxidants is vitamins C, then vitamin E and beta carotene. Although, these are found in food – particularly fruits and vegetables – some people don’t have easy access or the time to buy fruits and vegetables.
One potent antioxidant is the Muscadine grape, which is abundant in the Southern states of Florida, Georgia and North & South Carolina. It was clinically proven that the Muscadine grape has the highest content of revestratrol of any American grape. Resveratrol is a member of a group of plant compounds known as polyphenols that can counter the effects of the free radicals.
Antioxidant Supplement from North Carolina muscadines.
Muscadinex is a dietary supplement that contains a high amount of polyphenols, includingrevestratrol, ellagic acid and quercetin. Although antioxidants are found in fresh fruits and vegetables, the body might not be getting the daily dietary requirement from these fruits and vegetables that are high in Vitamins C, E and beta-carotene.
Dietary supplements come in handy for most busy folks, who don’t have the time or inclination to eat the right fruits and vegetables. The dietary supplement offered by the Muscadinex MX1 contains 100% pure Muscadine Grape Seed & Skin at 650mg per capsule. The bottle has 60 capsules, so can give a morning and evening boost of the muscadine superfruit for a full month.
The effects of migraine can diminish the sufferer’s ability to perform the activities of daily living, like work, school, hobbies and other important parts of the day. Now, that the clinical study revealed that and the oxidative stress or free radicals could be among of the causes of migraine, an antioxidant may provide the relief of the pain and other signs and symptoms of migraine.
