Butterbur Reviews
Butterbur is a shrub that grows in Europe and parts of Asia and North America, typically in wet, marshy ground. The name, butterbur, is attributed to the traditional use of its large leaves to wrap butter in warm weather. Butterbur has historically been used for a variety of health issues such as pain, headache, anxiety, cough, fever, and gastrointestinal and urinary tract conditions. It has also been used topically to improve wound healing. Today, traditional or folk uses include nasal allergies, allergic skin reactions, asthma, and migraine headache. The leaves, rhizomes (underground stems), and roots of butterbur are commonly used to make solid extracts used in tablets. Some butterbur extracts are also used topically.
Chemical Constitution of Butterbur Root
Butterbur contains senecionine and other toxic pyrrolizidine alkaloids in the leaf and root; a competitive immunoassay has been developed for determination of alkaloid content. High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) analyses of both plant parts indicate that, on average, leaves have lower alkaloid levels than roots.
A large number of sesquiterpenes have been isolated from butterbur, with petasin and related eromophilanes being the most pharmacologically important. The sesquiterpene distribution varies according to plant part, growth season, and plant location. HPLC methods for quantitative determination of petasin have been reported, and the existence of a distinct chemovar with furanoeremophilanes has been noted. The petasin series of compounds is unstable in storage, with rearrangements occurring in dry plant materials and in stored extracts. The biosynthesis of petasin has been elucidated. Differences in sesquiterpene profiles of various European petasites species have been studied. Other constituents of butterbur include the flavonoid glycosides isoquercitrin and astralagin.
Health Benefits of Butterbur Root Powder Extract
Although researches on the health benefits of taking Butterbur Root Powder Extract are limited, some studies suggest that Butterbur Root Powder Extract may offer certain health benefits. Here's a look at several key study findings:
Allergic rhinitis
Several clinical trials have been conducted on commercial preparations of butterbur to evaluate their efficacy in the management of allergic rhinitis. Both subjective and objective data serve as end points and measures of efficacy.
There are limited trials evaluating the efficacy of butterbur extracts in asthma. One small trial (N = 16) found improvement in the primary outcome of bronchial hyper-responsiveness with Petaforce 50 mg for 1 week. A reduction in asthma attacks was reported in another open-design trial after subjects were administered Petadolex 150 mg.
Three clinical trials have evaluated the efficacy of a butterbur extract ( Petadolex ) for the prevention of migraines, all recording a decrease in the number of migraine attacks per month. A number of responders in these trials achieved at least a 50% reduction in attacks. Dosages of Petadolex ranging from 50 mg twice daily to 75 mg twice daily 30 were used in these trials for periods of 3 to 5 months. One of the trials, an open-label design, included children 6 to 9 years of age and adolescents up to 17 years of age.
Butterbur Root Powder Extract Side Effects
The raw, unprocessed butterbur plant contains chemicals called pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs). PAs can cause liver damage and can result in serious illness. Only butterbur products that have been processed to remove PAs and are labeled or certified as PA-free should be used.
Several studies, including a few studies of children and adolescents, have reported that PA-free butterbur products are safe and well tolerated when taken by mouth in recommended doses for up to 12 to 16 weeks. The safety of longer-term use has not been established.
Butterbur can cause belching, headache, itchy eyes, gastrointestinal issues, asthma, fatigue, and drowsiness.
Butterbur may cause allergic reactions in people who are sensitive to plants such as ragweed, chrysanthemums, marigolds, and daisies.
Butterbur should only be given to children under the supervision of a qualified health practitioner.
Butterbur Root Powder Extract Dosage
Recommended dosages of Butterbur Root Powder Extract differ widely depending on the product and some other factors such as the user's age, health, and several other conditions. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.
