Butterbur Overview

NOW Butterbur is actually a combination of two medicinal herbs, butterbur and feverfew herbs. If you've ever researched herbal approaches to migraine headaches, you'll immediately recognize both butterbur and feverfew as perhaps the best-studied herbs for migraines and certain other types of headaches. While not a treatment for migraine headaches, butterbur and feverfew may be able to reduce their frequency and severity with daily use.

Butterbur Description from NOW
Butterbur (Petasites hybridus) is a native shrub of Europe, North America, and Asia that has been used by the herbalists for centuries. Modern scientific studies have demonstrated that Butterbur supports healthy blood flow to the brain and healthy neurological function. Petasins, the active constituents in Butterbur, have been shown to play a role in minimizing the frequency and severity of neurological discomfort triggered by bright lights and stress that occasionally occurs in healthy individuals. In addition, Butterbur may help to maintain balanced seasonal immune responses. NOW Butterbur is free of harmful levels of Pyrrolizidine Alkaloids (PA's), so it is safe to use regularly.

Consistently halves my head-ache frequency

Everyone's migraines are different, and the medicine that works for me might not work for you. What should help everyone, however, is keeping a log of your daily head-aches and what medicine or activity you are testing. My neurologist gave me a list of supplements to try for two weeks each, and both butterbur and feverfew were on the list. The first supplement I tried seemed to work at first, but by the end of the first week, no difference. I chose NOW Butterbur with Feverfew because it happened to have two supplements I was supposed to test. Taking two pills a day halved my head-aches within a week, and after a year, two pills/day still works. My blood work-ups at the Dr's office, including kidney and liver, are all normal, so no long-term problems from the formulation, either. The one problem was when I ran out of the stuff. I thought I didn't need it anymore because a week later, I still had only 2 - 3 head-aches a week. Then the last of the effect must have vanished, because I was back to every day. Ordered a three-month supply and the benefit was back within a week. I'm not saying butterbur and feverfew will work for you. My personal advice: Start your head-ache log (if you haven't got one already), then buy one bottle of NOW Butterbur and Feverfew to try a couple times a day. If those medicines work for you, the NOW brand is great quality at a good price. If they don't work, try other things: Exercise, more sleep, diet, B2, etc. And very best of luck getting your health back.
