They state that correcting vitamin D deficiency is important when treating these conditions since it’s not too costly and delivers big results in terms of quality of care and cost. (5) A further review of studies done regarding vitamin D and headache revealed that there is a link between vitamin D levels and headaches (the strongest link was between vitamin D levels and migraine). Researchers suggest that headache sufferers, particularly those with migraines, may reduce the incidence of headache by supplementing with vitamin D. (6) Simple!
