Health Notes

Feverfew

Feverfew
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Migraine Headache
Dose: Standardized herbal extract delivering 250 mcg of parthenolide per day
Feverfew is the most frequently used herb for the long-term migraine prevention. Continuous use of feverfew may reduce the severity, duration, and frequency of migraine headaches.(more)
Migraine Headache
Dose: Standardized herbal extract delivering 250 mcg of parthenolide per day

The most frequently used herb for the long-term prevention of migraines is feverfew.1 Four double-blind trials have reported that continuous use of feverfew leads to a reduction in the severity, duration, and frequency of migraine headaches,2, 3, 4, 5 although one double-blind trial found feverfew to be ineffective.6

Studies suggest that taking standardized feverfew leaf extracts that supply a minimum of 250 mcg of parthenolide per day is most effective. Results may not be evident for at least four to six weeks. Although there has been recent debate about the relevance of parthenolide as an active constituent,7 it is best to use standardized extracts of feverfew until research proves otherwise.

A double-blind study found that a combination of feverfew and ginger may be effective for acute treatment of migraines. In that study, 63% of patients taking the herbal preparation experienced pain relief within 2 hours, whereas only 39% taking placebo experienced relief, a statistically significant difference. The product used in this study was a proprietary preparation called LipiGesic M (PuraMed BioScience, Inc., Schofield, WI). The liquid from 1-unit dose applicator was administered sublingually, held under the tongue for 60 seconds, and then swallowed. A second dose was given 5 minutes later. If pain persisted after 1 hour, a second treatment of 2-unit doses could be given.8

      Comments about GNC HERBAL PLUS STANDARDIZED GNC Herbal Plus® Standardized Feverfew:

      I had suffered migraine headaches for over 30 years. Unfortunately my doctor was unable to help me and all I got was a stronger killer pain prescription. I felt immediate response right after I stated taken this product. I take one every morning and it gives me energy and I feel great. This is absolutely an answer to my prayers and I am recommending this product to people I know who also suffer of migraines. NO MORE HEADACHES!!! After 30 years!

        Someone else told me about this product, so I tried it I went from having about 6 or 7 headaches a week to 1 or none, this is a great herb, I take one everyday in the morning and the great part is you can take it on an empty stomach. I plan to continue taking feverfew for life. There are no side effects, and if you are considering it,just think the worst that could happen is it won't work, but when it does you will be glad it bought it!

            Use because of migraine headaches.
            Take on a daily basis for maintenence.
            At times I experience flashes of lines around the eye & after taking a Feverfew that usually stops in about 10 minutes (The lines ususally indicate that a migraine will be coming.)

                I have been taking a (1) Feverfew pill a day since 2005 for migraine. Before somebody told me about Feverfew at least once a month I have blurred vision followed by an intense headache, nausea,and vomiting. I used to take a couple of Tylenol to lessen the pain and lie down in a dark room for hours to ease the headache. Thanks to Feverfew - a pill a day keep the headaches away. I recommend to anyone suffering from migraine.

                  I have taken two Feverfew capsules every day for at least fifteen years. I used to suffer debilitating headaches with terrible side effects. Since starting Feverfew I have fewer headaches, no vomiting, and less severe headaches. I wouldn't go a day with them.
