That the composition of the gut flora or gut microbiota impacts our whole body has already been demonstrated repeatedly. According to a publication from 2015, marinating a healthy bacterial balance in the gut could also be a remedy for migraine.
While the exact causes of migraine have yet to be conclusively determined, some scientists believe that these might include gastric irritations, bowel disorders, or Helicobacter infections. A poor gut microbiota or inflamed gut mucosa could result in the brain being undersupplied with omega fatty acids, minerals, and trace elements, and – according to natural medical practitioners – this could, in the long run, cause hormonal imbalances and eventually chronic migraine.
During the study, participants received a mix of probiotics for twelve weeks – and reported a lower frequency of migraine attacks. More research in this area will be necessary, in particular placebo-controlled studies. However, the present results suggest that probiotic bacteria could be able to improve the gut microbiota and in this way reduce the frequency and intensity of migraine attacks.
