Vitamin D Deficiency Increases Risk of Chronic Headache

Volume 7    |    Issue 11

If you suffer from chronic headaches, you've probably tried just about everything to solve the problem. But what if the solution might be incredibly simple?

According to a new study out of the University of Eastern Finland, the cause of many cases of chronic headaches could be a vitamin D deficiency.

In the study, researchers analyzed the serum vitamin D levels and occurrence of headache in approximately 2,600 men. All of them were between the ages of 42 and 60 years. Of these 2,600 men, 250 of them reported having headaches at least on a weekly basis. The researchers found that 68% of these men had a serum vitamin D level below 50 nmol/l. That's the level that's generally considered the threshold for vitamin D deficiency. And the men reporting these chronic headaches consistently had lower serum vitamin D levels than the others.

But the researchers didn't stop there. They divided the participants into four groups based on their serum vitamin D levels. What they found was telling. The group with the lowest levels had over a twofold risk of chronic headache compared to those with the highest levels.

The researchers also noted that the men had chronic headaches far more frequently outside the summer months (June-September).

So if you suffer from chronic headache, this study should tell you what to do — take more vitamin D. Most people can move above the 50 nmol/l level by taking 5,000 IU of Vitamin D3 daily. The solution really could be that simple.
