    Vitamin B Complex for Headache

    Headache can be brought on due to the deficiency of B vitamins, namely pantothenic acid, B-1 (thiamine), B-12 and B-6 (pyridoxine) and can be cured by taking these vitamins. When taking any of the B-vitamin factors separately, it is absolutely essential to add the entire B-complex range to one's diet in some form such as Brewer's yeast, liver, wheat germ, etc., otherwise too much of one factor can throw the other factors into imbalance, resulting in other problems. Actually, the entire B complex group itself serves as protection against headaches, including migraine.
