Many people today suffer from headaches and migraines and we know that the effect can be absolutely debilitating. The impact of the continual discomfort is unduly hard for the world of the sufferer and understandably so, the desire to have some type of supplement to aid the pain is great. Today we are reviewing Life Extension Migra-Eeze, a supplement that has been designed with Butterbur which has shown to reduce the frequency of headaches by up to 61% in studies both in the United States and Germany.
- Riboflavin (vitamin B2) (as riboflavin and riboflavin 5′ phosphate) – 400 mg
- Butterbur CO2 extract (root) – 150 mg
- Ginger extract (root) – 250 mg
Other Ingredients: Sunflower Oil, Gelatin, Sorbitol, Glycerin, Beeswax, Purified Water, Carob Lecithin. And this product contains soybeans.
Butterbur eases muscle discomfort and relaxes the blood vessels by having an anti-inflammatory effect; Both Ginger and Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) help with cranial discomforts, and Riboflavin helps reduce the recurrence and frequency of migraines. We were surprised that this product does not have Magnesium (known to be important for migraine prevention), Feverfew (which inhibits the release of blood vessels), and Piperine (which helps you feel the effects faster) – these key ingredients for inclusion in the best migraine products.
Instructions state to take 2 softgels daily not necessarily together at the same time, but no further instructions are given except that the dosage should not be exceeded. They state that the optimal amount of time to take this product is for 4-6 months only and then to either reduce the dose or discontinue use. Finally, a reminder that you should consult with your physician if you are currently being treated for a medical condition or if you are pregnant or nursing before using this product.
It is possible to purchase Migra-Eeze on the manufacturer’s website for $22.88 for 60 softgels, and third-party retailers sell it for a dollar less for $21.26. There are multiple packs available on the third-party websites at 2 bottles for $41.50.

They do not stipulate any other details on whether the products that they will accept for return need to be unopened etc. So we suggest that you check with the company first before making a purchase to clarify the nature of their policy.
Life Extension Migra-Eeze Review – Conclusion
Migra-Eeze looks to be a fair tool for individuals who are looking for a solution to their headaches. Unfortunately, the number of mixed reviews for the product are great enough to be a great concern for the consumer. Specifically, there are side effects including stomach upset and discomfort. There are also a few key ingredients missing in this supplement. Plus the presence of gelatin makes the product neither vegetarian nor vegan. Therefore our recommendation for you at this point is to continue looking for a migraine supplement that will have the right formula of ingredients supported by the recommendation of consumers and accompanied with a guarantee by the manufacturer.
