Feverfew

Tanacetum parthenium

Feverfew (leaf and flower) has been shown in clinical studies to reduce the number and severity of migraine headaches. The anti-inflammatory parthenolides reduce the activity of inflammatory prostaglandins and shows promise in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. It also relieves menstrual cramps, toothaches and fever. This herb has been used for over 2000 years and is found throughout Europe, Asia, North America and Chile.
