Applications and Properties:
Migraine:50 mg of a standardized petasites extract twice daily for 12 weeks.
Mechanisms:The active constituents of Petasites have an antispasmodic effect on vascular walls and appear to have an affinity for cerebral blood vessels. Petasites' ability to reduce smooth muscle spasm suggests it may be a useful therapeutic tool in treating urinary disorders, menstrual cramps, migraine headaches, kidney stone disorders, obstruction of bile flow, as well as other liver or gastrointestinal disorders associated with smooth muscle spasm.The anti-inflammatory properties of butterbur extracts are attributed to inhibition of lipoxygenase activity and down-regulation of leukotriene synthesis, and are primarily due to the petasin content.
It is estimated that 240 million people worldwide suffer 1.4 billion migraine attacks each year. Current therapeutic options are often not effective or are accompanied by troublesome side effects. New research reveals that an extract of the ancient medicinal plant, Petasites hybridus (butterbur), can reduce the frequency, duration and pain of migraine attacks by up to 60% with a degree of safety and tolerance superior to most pharmaceutical drugs.
Dosage:50-100 mg twice daily,Petasites extracts standardized to contain a minimum of 7.5 mg of petasin and isopetasin.
Safety and Toxicity:
Suggestions:When used to treat migraines, administration is prophylactic and supplementation should be carried out daily for a few weeks and then tapered until migraine incidence begins to increase. Before taking Butterbur, tell your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
