If you haven’t heard of butterbur perhaps you should begin to educate yourself. Butterbur is a plant that has been showing some amazing promise when it comes to fighting allergies. According to WebMd there have been studies that have shown the effectiveness of this plant in combating hay fever:
In one study, published recently in the British Medical Journal, a group of Swiss researchers showed how just one tablet of butterbur four times daily was as effective as a popular antihistamine drug in controlling symptoms of hay fever — without the traditional symptom of drowsiness that sometimes occurs. In a second study, presented at the 60th annual meeting of the American Academy of Allergy,Asthma, and Immunology (AAAAI), a group of British researchers put their stamp of approval on butterbur’s effectiveness in quelling symptoms of grass allergy.
These initial results seem promising and you might want to consider checking out more information on butterbur for yourself.
