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.

Feverfew has been used for the prevention of migraines & headaches, arthritis, fevers, muscle tension and pain, Feverfew is also used to lower blood pressure, lessen stomach irritation, stimulate the appetite and to improve digestion and kidney function. It has been indicated for colitis, dizziness, tinnitus and menstrual problems. Besides vascular headaches, feverfew may relieve premenstrual headaches, which often are due to fluid retention and hormonal effects.

Studies have shown the use of feverfew may reduce of frequency and severity of headaches. It can be more effective than other nonsteroidal antiinflammatories (NSAIDS), like aspirin. The combination of ingredients in the feverfew plant that brings such effective relief. It works to inhibit the release of two inflammatory substances, serotonin and prostaglandins, both believed to contribute to the onset of migraines.

By inhibiting these amines as well as the production of the chemical histamine, the herb controls inflammation that constricts the blood vessels in the head and prevents blood vessel spasms which may contribute to headaches.
In many studies, both the intensity of the person’s migraines, and the frequency of them, were decreased as long as the person was taking feverfew every single day.
