FEVERFEW HERBS, HERBAL MEDICOS

herbalmedicos.blogspot.in



Feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium) is commonly used for the treatment of migraine headaches,
arthritis, and various type of allergies. This herb is thought to exert its pharmacological activity by inhibiting serotonin and histamine release, prostaglandin synthesis, and platelet release and aggregation.
Several studies have shown feverfew to interfere with hemostasis and platelet aggregation
by neutralizing platelet sulfhydryl groups, as well as preventing prostaglandin synthesis. Parthenolide,
one of the many sesquiterpene lactone constituents of feverfew extract, has been shown to
exert the greatest pharmacological activity.
