Melatonin: A common sleep aid naturally produced by the pineal gland, melatonin appears to have not only sleep promoting properties, but also anti-inflammatory properties given its similar structure to indomethacin, but without as many side effects. This provides two ways through which it helps migraineurs, and explains the benefits seen in case reports and studies. Interestingly, migraineurs may be deficient in melatonin.
Magnesium: Magnesium is a mineral that binds to excitotoxic channels in the brain, providing a means to decrease abnormal firing in migraine. It has many other actions, including stabilizing blood vessels, perhaps aiding peripherally through connections with the meningeal vessels and the trigeminal nerve. Studies show magnesium can reduce headache frequency and intensity, as well as reduce aura and photophobia (light sensitivity). Like melatonin, studies indicate migraineurs are deficient in magnesium. It is one of the best studied supplements in migraine.

CoQ10: CoQ10 is necessary for stabilization of mitochondria. It is through this action that it is thought to reduce migraine frequency and intensity, as seen in studies.
