Vitanica Butterbur Extra - 120 Capsules
Why We Recommend
The first thing to know about butterbur is that it's best to choose a butterbur supplement like Vitanica's that is free of potential liver-damaging pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs). When free of PAs, butterbur can be a safe, powerful and non-drowsy treatment for migraines, asthma, allergies and skin infections. This popular herb naturally blocks leukotriene (LT), the inflammatory chemical that is responsible for triggering allergic reactions like sneezing and coughs. What we like about Vitanica's proprietary formula is that it's strengthened with ginger, feverfew and other important nutrients to support brain chemistry and normal blood flow in the brain.
The force behind the Vitanica brand is Dr. Tori Hudson, the nationally recognized naturopathic doctor, author, speaker and researcher. We've known Dr. Hudson for a long time and she is our go-to expert when we want insights into women's health issues. As we would fully expect, her Vitanica herbal supplements are among the most respected in the industry, notable for their purity, bioactivity and therapeutic benefit.
