Petadolex Butterbur Safety
The butterbur plant in its unpurified powder form contains natural pyrrolizidin alkaloids (PAs) that may cause liver damage or liver cancer. PAs can be eliminated only while in a liquid form and cannot be eliminated from solid or powdered butterbur root. Only Petadolex is manufactured by a patented method for extracting the beneficial liquid of the Butterbur plant without the PAs.
What Is the Butterbur Plant?
Butterbur is an herb originally found in Europe and parts of North Africa and Asia. The plant grows in damp, marshy areas and along riverbanks with large heart-shaped leaves. The name butterbur comes from the reported ancient practice of using the leaves to wrap butter. Extracts of the plant's roots, leaves and flowers have been used as far back as the Middle Ages for head discomfort.
