LOS ANGELES, June 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Parents often feel helpless when it comes to their child's chronic migraines. Migraines are often incapacitating to children and can strike suddenly with extreme head pain, often accompanied by nausea, abdominal pain, dizziness and vomiting. About 10% of school-age children get migraines and half of the 38 million people in the United States who suffer migraines had their first attack before age 12.
"Many side-effect prone prescription medications are difficult for adults to tolerate much less children," states Curt Hendrix, M.S., C.C.N., C.N.S., Chief Scientific Officer of Akeso Health Sciences and creator of MigreLief Triple Therapy with Puracol™. "Long-term use of OTC drugs such as aspirin, acetaminophen and ibuprofen are known to have negative consequences in adults and children so I wanted to give parents an option to use a nutritional approach with dietary ingredients shown to help maintain normal brain cerebrovascular tone and function."
The original daily maintenance formula known for over 15 years as "MigreLief Triple Therapy with Puracol™" put Akeso Health Sciences on the map as a great nutritional option recommended by neurologists and headache specialists throughout the United States. In 2013, Akeso introduced MigreLief+M for women with hormonally related migraines. By adding Children's MigreLief and fast-acting MigreLief-NOW to their migraine product line-up, Akeso has increased awareness of non-drug options for migraine sufferers.
Children's MigreLief contains a patented "Triple Therapy" approach to maintaining normal cerebrovascular tone and function. Nutritional deficiencies, inflammation and vasospasm can independently and together contribute to migraine occurrence, frequency and intensity.
Akeso MigreLief contains Puracol™, a proprietary blend of two unique feverfew sources, magnesium (oxide and citrate) and riboflavin (B-2). Children's MigreLief contains the same ingredients as Original MigreLief with dosages and pill sizes adjusted to meet the needs of children age 2-11.
"It can take from three weeks to three months for Original or Children's MigreLief to reach maximum benefits when taken daily," says Hendrix, "Therefore, I wanted to formulate a dietary supplement that both adults and children could take right away, 'as-needed' and in 2014, I formulated MigreLief-NOW."
MigreLief-NOW contains Cerevasc™ ginger, Puracol™ feverfew, magnesium and a special form of boswellia extract. "Not just for migraines," Hendrix explains, "MigreLief-NOW can also be taken for 'on-the-spot' nutritional support for many types of headaches and overall comfort."
Akeso Health Sciences formulates drug-free, condition-specific dietary supplements addressing the nutritional needs associated with many of the major health concerns people face today.
