Tackling Migraines With Ginger

Posted on: 02 Sep 08


Nearly six million people in the UK suffer from migraines with 190,000 attacks occurring every day*. Two out of three sufferers are women** and, in total, migraines cost the UK around £1 billion per annum***.
Since physicians do not fully understand the cause of migraines, sufferers frequently remain abandoned by their healthcare practitioner. As a consequence of this lack of understanding, the condition is not straightforward to treat and where preventative orthodox drug treatments do exist, many are associated with unwanted side effects - not ideal when used on an ongoing basis.
Research with national charity Migraine Action, amongst extreme migraine sufferers has found that the Nature’s Best ginger supplement produces excellent results when tackling the debilitating symptoms of nausea and vomiting associated with migraines. Nearly two out of three of respondents (63%) felt that the course of Nature’s Best unique ginger extract resulted in a positive outcome and 39% reported excellent or good results****. Evidence shows that ginger has anti-inflammatory effects and anti nausea effects, as well as the ability to reduce the ‘stickiness’ of the blood through its action on platelet activating factor.
Dr. Sam Christie, published women’s health expert, comments, “Migraines are debilitating headaches that can have a negative impact on one’s quality of life. Migraine Awareness Week is an excellent opportunity to raise awareness of the severity of migraines and its prevalence in the UK, especially among women. Our research showed that a particular extract of ginger, high in compounds called gingerols, can have a very positive effect if taken regularly by sufferers.”
Lee Tompkins, Director of Migraine Action comments, “We recommend ginger to help migraineurs who are looking for natural products as part of their migraine management plan. Our members tell us that a ginger supplement is especially effective at combating the nausea associated with migraines.”
Nature’s Best is offering free advice to Migraine sufferers and a free 30 day trial pack of Ginger as part of the Migraine Awareness campaign.
Nature’s Best High Strength Ginger Extract usually costs just £7.95 for 3 month’s supply. However to coincide with Migraine Awareness Week, Nature’s Best is delighted to offer sufferers the opportunity to try a special 30 day Free Ginger Trial Pack for just a £1 contribution towards p&p.
