Butterbur Benefits

Can Children Use Butterbur?

Natural butterbur contains toxic alkaloids that can damage the liver and the lungs. Unless these alkaloids are removed (as is done with some high-quality supplements), this substance should not be considered safe for anyone, especially children.
 
There is preliminary evidence that butterbur may be effective for preventing migraines in children as young as six years old. However, it is best to consult your child's healthcare provider before giving your child any supplement, including butterbur.
