Food Causes Headaches

 What causes a headache? Disturbed by sudden headache that does not go away? Do not blame circumstances, but try to pay attention to what we eat. Maybe there hubngannya with the type of food causes headaches before you consume.

Experts say, an orange and some other foods can trigger headaches when people are eating these foods has decreased enzyme. While this enzyme is essential for neutralizing amines or collection of nitrogen-containing organic compounds in food. Some foods have large amounts of amines, and without a doubt it is no enzyme headaches (even migraines) can be stimulated.

Eating 1-3 oranges may not be harmful. However, if we include people who experience frequent migraines, wiser if we can be aware of the impact that the food we eat is to prevent migraines. So we get a new theory, in which snacking foods can be a signal the occurrence of migraine. However, not only the food that every moment can be a migraine trigger, but other triggers, such as bright lights or stress is also a motivating factor headache occurs sooner.

Besides citrus, food and other beverages that can trigger headaches are:

1. Cheeses containing tyramine, which is a natural substance that is formed due to aging food. Proven high levels of tyramine can cause hypertension. This is not good, especially for people who are undergoing treatment with MAO inhibitors (a type of anti-depressant) to address their migraines. Cheeses that contain high levels of tyramine such as blue cheese, brie, cheddar, Stilton, feta, gorgonzola, mozzarella, muenster, Parmesan, and Swiss.

2. The food is marinated, processed, and canned foods also have a high tyramine content. Observe how your body reacts when you eat pickles, olive oil, and canned soup.

3. Once metabolized by the body, alcohol can also trigger headaches. Beware when consuming red wine, beer, whiskey, and champagne that have been identified as headache triggers.

4. Of the patients with migraine and headaches, we also found some popular foods that can also be the cause of their pain, such as peanuts or peanut butter, potato chips, pizza, kiwi fruit, plums, raspberries, bread, and biscuits.
