The herb butterbur has been used traditionally by herbalists for a variety of health conditions. It appears to be especially helpful for spasms, swelling and inflammation. Research has suggested, used over a four month period, that butterbur can be useful in reducing the duration and intensity of migraine headaches by half - likely because of the spasm-, swelling-, and inflammation- reducing capacity. This formulation does not contain pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs) which can be harmful to the liver.
