What’s in Feverfew Migraine Relief?
As the name suggests, the main ingredient is 100 mg of Feverfew dry herb.

Feverfew is actually a common ingredient used in most migraine supplements, it has anti-inflammatory properties as it helps to relieve smooth muscle spasms and prevents the blood vessels in the brain from contacting. While this may be effective for relieving pain and tension in some individuals, it by no means helps to relieve any other symptoms or underlying causes associated with migraines such as nausea, anxiety, stress and magnesium deficiency. The side effects associated with Feverfew are abdominal bloating, indigestion, heartburn and, nausea, constipation or diarrhea.

This product should only be used once you have been diagnosed by a healthcare professional. If you have any allergies from the Asteraceae (Compositae) family such as daisies, marigolds, artichokes, chrysanthemums or ragweed, this product is not suitable for you.

The Conclusion of Our Feverfew Migraine Relief Review
There are some advantages to using Feverfew as a relief from migraines and the product comes convenient in easy to swallow capsules but this does not necessarily treat all the symptoms of a migraine or prevent future attacks. The manufacturer has failed to provide any proof that by just using one ingredient migraines and triggers are prevented. This is very important information and consumers will need to vigilant in conducting their own research of Feverfew to see if this is the sort of relief they are looking for. The side effects associated with this product may leave some feeling worse than before an attack. When looking at the end user testimonials, we were unable to find any from trusted third-party sources. The ones directly on the manufacturer website may be biased and can not be used as factual social proof. Unfortunately, the terms of the guarantee are limited and without that information, we cannot comment on whether or not this guarantee actually backs the formula and not only the workmanship. In conclusion to this review, we advise consumers to look at the facts and explore different options of reputable brands that offer overall relief from migraines.
