Migraine and Tannin

A few people have found that they can prevent their migraines by avoiding food that contains tannins.

This web site tells their stories. It explores the relationship between migraines and tannins. We hope to encourage research into this relationship.

Sometimes, migraines are a sign of something seriously wrong. If so, you may need medical attention, and you may need it fast. Do not let this site delay you in seeking medical help.
