Butterbur is a shrub that grows in Europe and parts of Asia and North America. In the Middle Ages butterbur was used for torment and fever, and in the 17th century it was used to treat skin, bronchial asthma, and coughing wounds. There have been a couple of research studies of butterbur for migraine headaches and allergic rhinitis in people, so we have some knowledge of its impacts on these two conditions. Butterbur shows up to help in reducing the regularity of migraine headaches in children and adults. Some studies of butterbur origin or leaf essences recommend that they might be helpful for symptoms of hay fever, but the information are not convincing. One study suggested that a combination item containing butterbur could boost anxiety and clinical depression in people with somatoform disorders. Butterbur has not been proven helpful for sensitive skin reactions, chronic obstructive bronchitis, insomnia, distressed stomach, urinary tract symptoms, bronchial asthma, and other problems.
