"Herb helps hay fever"
 
"An herbal extract may treat seasonal allergies just as effectively as antihistamine drugs without the risk of drowsiness, a new study by Swiss and German researchers has found.

The study, published in the journal Phytotherapy Research, tested extract of butterbur, a plant found in Europe, Asia and parts of North America. Butterbur's roots have been used medicinally for centuries, but the plant's leaves have only recently come into use as an herbal medicine. Both the leaves and the roots contain petasines, chemicals that inhibit the body's ability to produce leukotrienes, components of an allergic reaction."
