Butterbur: An Overlooked Herb for Allergies Migraines and Asthma

 Butterbur is often an overlooked option  that can help reduce the symptoms of allergies, migraines, and asthma.

It is a perennial shrub that grows in wet, marshy ground in Europe and parts of Asia and North America.

Butterbur contains petasin and isopetasin, ingredients known to reduce muscle spasms and inflammation.  Research suggests that the plant contains compounds that prevent blood vessel inflammation, a possible migraine trigger.  According to a 2004 study published by the American Academy of Neurology, patients taking butterbur root extract had their migraine attack frequency drop by almost 50 percent over four months of treatment.

Butterbur root extract can be taken as an infusion, a tincture or a capsule.

This herb should never be used by pregnant women or anyone who has liver or kidney disease.
