For this study, the researchers examined migraine patients who were kids, teens and youngsters. The participants received treatment for the condition at the Headache Center. During the study, the scientists have found that many of the patients had mild deficiencies in vitamin D, riboflavin, and coenzyme Q10.

The authors of the research said: “Girls and young women were more likely than boys and young men to have coenzyme Q10 deficiencies. Boys and young men were more likely to have vitamin D deficiencies.”

The results of the study also show that deficiencies of coenzyme Q10 and riboflavin were found more in people with chronic migraines compared to those with episodic migraine sufferers.
