2. Butterbur Extract for Allergy Relief

Allergic rhinitis or hay fever produces symptoms such as nasal congestion, itchy, watery eyes, and sneezing. These conditions result from the release of histamines in the body. Clinical studies have documented butterbur's antihistamine properties, which appear to reduce symptoms dramatically. The extract shows significant effectiveness rivaling that of cetirizine in treating seasonal allergies, with fewer adverse side effects than the drug.
