What are Migraines?
Migraines are common, affecting 1 in 4 females and 1 in 12 males in the UK and should not be confused with a very bad headache. Although it may be severe, the headache is normally associated with other unpleasant symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and visual problems.
What is Feverfew?
Native to the Balkan Mountains, Feverfew is a flowering plant in the daisy family that has been used for over two millennia as a traditional herbal medicine. With its dainty yellow and white flowers, and its zesty-fragrant leaves (which are occasionally eaten or made into Tea), Feverfew makes a wonderfully decorative garden plant.
How does Feverfew tackle the symptoms of a migraine?
Feverfew contains a compound called parthenolide, which may prevent the constriction of blood vessels in the brain. When taken orally, Feverfew is also thought to benefit those with asthma, Psoriasis, tinnitus, and irregular menstrual periods.
