Found a link between the migraine and bacteria in the mouth
Link found between migraines and bacteria in the mouth
Migraine is a problem that afflicts millions of people: it is a chronic headache that can last several hours or even days. There are episodes in which migraine is preceded by some symptoms: such as tingling in the legs and arms, flashes of light, or visible black dots on the sides of the eyes, up to nausea and photosensitivity, in which case we speak of migraine aura. People who suffer from this pathology are well aware that there are certain factors that can worsen the condition: one of them is nutrition. A recent study, published in the scientific journal American Society for Microbiology, correlated migraines with bacteria in the mouth. A study conducted at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine (USA) was carried out by researchers based on the analysis of data from the American Gut Project, which found that migraine patients possess a significantly higher amount of microbes responsible of nitric nitrogen reduction (denitrification) compared to those who do not suffer from it.
For the project, observes Giovanni D’Agata, president of the "Rights Window", the scientists analyzed over 170 saliva samples and almost 2.000 of feces. According to the data that emerged, these bacteria play a very important role in the management of nitrates, which must be converted into nitric oxide in the blood. According to scholars, these bacteria play a very important role in the management of nitrates, which must be converted into nitric oxide in the blood.
In turn, monoxide causes an expansion of the blood vessels that makes circulation better; A procedure that is therefore useful for cardiovascular health. According to the results of the research, however, the overabundance of these bacteria can disintegrate nitrates too quickly, thus causing the blood vessels in the brain to dilate and trigger migraine. In light of this discovery, the researchers will soon propose innovative treatments to treat this common problem.
