Butterbur: For hundreds of years Butterbur (Petasites hybridus) has been used against many diseases. Modern indications are the prophylaxis of migraine, tension headache, spasms of the urogenital tract, gastrointestinal tract, and bile duct.
Butterbur extracts possess analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, and vasodilatory properties. Standardized butterbur extract has been shown to be safe and effective for preventing migraines and was recommended by the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) and the American Headache Society (AHS).
Magnesium L-Threonate: Studies have found that people who have migraines tend to have lower levels of magnesium than people who don’t get headaches. Research suggests that magnesium stops certain chemicals that cause pain. What’s more, a drop in magnesium levels also seems to cause blood vessels in the brain to narrow or constrict, which may also play a role in migraines. Magnesium L-threonate is the only form of magnesium proven in a study to cross the blood-brain barrier.
Feverfew Leaf: The feverfew herb continues to undergo extensive scientific investigation of its parthenolide content, and how it normalises the function of platelets in the blood system by inhibiting platelet aggregation, reducing serotonin release from platelets, and blocking the formation of pro-inflammatory mediators that can cause blood vessels to swell. 70% of the patients in these studies report fewer attacks of migraines and less painful attacks when they do occur. Researchers believe that feverfew prevents the spasms of blood vessels in the head that trigger migraines. This herb also relieves the inflammation associated with arthritis.
CoQ10 from Arjuna Bark: CoQ10 appears to be a good migraine preventive. An important finding from studies shows that taking CoQ10 is extremely well-tolerated and may be particularly effective in the treatment of migraines, including childhood migraines.
Ginger: Few studies to date have proposed ginger derivates for migraine relief. A recent study evaluated the efficacy of ginger in the ablation of common migraine attacks in comparison to sumatriptan therapy. The effectiveness of ginger powder in the treatment of common migraine attacks is statistically comparable to sumatriptan, without the negative side effects.
Milk Thistle: Milk Thistle is a well-known and studied herb that enhances liver function and stimulates regeneration of hepatic cells when mild to moderately damaged. Due to the liver’s role in detoxifying the blood, and the role of toxins in the blood stimulating inflammation and abnormal contraction of the blood vessels, milk thistle has been shown to reduce the number of migraine attacks in chronic sufferers, possibly pointing to a link between digestion, elimination and the inflammation in the blood vessels.
