Feverfew 340mg $28.99 $37.99
Feverfew displays a number of properties and has historically been used in a number of ways. In modern times, it is best known for reducing the frequency of headaches when used in small doses on a regular basis. The main constituent has been called parthenolide, which is one of a group of chemical substances known as sesquiterpene lactones. It is this component that appears to be useful in the relief of headaches.
Migraine Aid $16.99 $24.99
How it works There is a significant body of research to support the role of feverfew (and its sesquiterpene lactones - considered to be the main active constituents) in the prevention of migraine, and it has been found to produce a significant reduction in the number and severity of attacks experienced by sufferers, as well as to reduce the amount of associated vomiting. The preventive action with regard to migraine appears to be a combination of several mechanisms, including inhibition of production of inflammatory compounds (including prostaglandins, leukotrienes and thromboxanes), inhibition of platelet aggregation, improved secretion of anti-inflammatory compounds (such as histamine and serotonin) and a tonic effect on vascular smooth muscle. Dosage Adults - Take one capsule daily with breakfast, or as professionally prescribed. The beneficial effects of Blackmores Migraine Aid occur after two to three weeks and use can be maintained over a prolonged period. Children (under 12 years) - Only as professionally prescribed. Active Ingredients Per Capsule Tanacetum parthenium (Feverfew) leaf powder 125 mg (standardised to contain parthenolide 250mcg)
