Video: Effects Of Coffee On Migraine Attacks: Is There A Connection?
Affecting 15% of the population, migraine is an annoying condition accompanied by nausea and vomiting that could last up to a few days. But did you know that caffeine can contribute to these nasty seizures? So, scientists at Harvard University looked at the effects of coffee on migraine patients by finding a connection between caffeine and strong headaches.
The effects of coffee on migraine
Although some of the triggers for migraine have been revealed (change of environment, stress, fatigue, genetic predisposition), this worrying condition still remains shrouded in mystery. However, a team from Harvard University has made progress in discovering yet another factor linked to the onset of seizures. The study was carried out on 98 patients suffering from frequent migraine and aimed to determine whether coffee consumption promotes migraine attacks.
The people examined took notes for 6 weeks describing in detail the taking of medications, the consumption of coffee, alcoholic beverages and a whole host of other triggers of migraine such as stress, quality of sleep, physical activity, depression. And so on. But, ultimately, what are the effects of coffee on this painful condition?
So, looking at the data provided, the Harvard scientists concluded that consuming one or two cups of coffee daily is harmless and does not affect headaches. However, the risk of migraine increases from three cups a day.
