I’ve never heard of it. Period. Let alone as migraine prevention supplement. Whatever is it. Helen.


Hi @MNEK18 I’ve only heard of it to kill fleas on pets :rofl:


Me neither Helen, well not until a couple of weeks ago anyway - my friend Fiona started taking it for acne I believe and I was kinda dismissive because she is a bit of a hippy and into non medical treatment… so we laughed about it but I have read its helping people with migraine… You might wanna check it out :blush:
