Nearly a year ago, I wrote about the beneficial effects of butterbur in treating migraines. In clinical trials in both Germany and the United States, butterbur reduced the incidence of head cavity discomforts by up to 61%. In fact , according to doctors from the American Academy of Neurology and the American Headache Society, butterbur is as effective as many prescription medications in making make a difference in preventing migraine headaches.
Life Extension’s Migra-Eeze contains butterbur root extract standardized to provide 22.5 mg of petasins with each daily dose of two softgels. Riboflavin (vitamin B2) and ginger are included, based on the ability of these nutrients to exert functional changes that may also guard against head cavity discomfort.
