Butterbur Extract Powder

It stopped 2 out of 3 migraines so far, best yet! I take only a tiny bit, maybe 50mg and hold it sublingually in my mouth and the threatened migraine fades away if I get butterbur early enough. Amazing! Toxins are in butterbur so be careful. Don't expect to use it day after day, only now and then.


Very Good For Allergy Symptoms!

This product so far has been very helpful for our allergy symptoms and our headaches!



Great product. I use it for allergy relief and headaches.
