used for fever and headache relief. This hardy perennial's anti inflammatory action is caused by the active compound, parthenolide, found in the plant's flowers and leaves. An antispasmodic, this natural inhibitor opens constricted blood vessels, easing pressure to the head and in joints. Studies conducted by the Maryland Medical Center show that Feverfew is actually effective at relieving migraines and minor headaches.
