Butterbur for Migraines

butterburIf you’ve experienced migraines before then you understand how painful and debilitating they can be. What’s worse is that there are very few remedies that provide relief without side effects. Luckily, research is proving that butterbur, an herbal extract, can cut the frequency of migraines by 50%. Derived from the leaves and roots of its shrub, butterbur provides anti-inflammatory relief without the unpleasant side effects that come with the more common migraine medications.[1]

Be advised that some butterbur products may contain pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs), which have been linked to liver and blood circulation problems. Avoid this issue by only purchasing certified butterbur that is free of PAs.
