A Vitamin D Deficiency Is a Pain in the Head

Isn't sunlight a migraine trigger? It turns out over-exposure and under-exposure to the sun can be a pain in the head.

Ultraviolet light from the sun is an important source of vitamin D. There are many reasons why someone could be vitamin D deficient. Being exposed to very little sunlight is one cause of this deficiency. If you suffer from migraines, tension headaches, or frequent headaches, this could be the cause of your unpleasant symptoms.

Studies Confirm Headaches and Vitamin D Deficiency are Interrelated

In a recent study, researchers found that the group tested with the lowest levels of vitamin D had over a twofold risk of chronic headaches in comparison to the group with the highest levels of vitamin D. Another study gave patients doses between 1,000 and 1,500 IU per day and found that everyone in the study experienced significant or complete improvement of headache symptoms within four to six weeks.

The Importance of Vitamin D

Thanks to UVB radiation from the sun, the average serum vitamin D levels are higher during the summer months. Outside the summer season, people need to make sure that they get sufficient vitamin D from food or from vitamin D supplements.

Multivitamins and supplements are a great way to receive your daily recommendation of vitamins and minerals, including 100% of your daily recommended vitamin D.

Other Sources of Vitamin D

Vitamin D can naturally be found in several foods including:

  • Egg yolks
  • Fish
  • Cheese
  • Oysters
  • Fish

Foods that are commonly fortified with Vitamin D include:

  • Milk
  • Orange juice
  • Cereal
  • Margarine
  • Yogurt
