Headaches and migraines can be a result of a multitude of triggers such as stress. However, some foods can actually serve as a trigger as well. Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is an additive used to enhance the flavor of foods that often leads to headaches. It is used primarily in Chinese food, so go easy on the Chinese if you are prone to developing migraines.
