GelStat® Migraine is a patented solution designed for the pain relief from migraine headaches. GelStat Migraine is a unique formulation based on the medicinal plants feverfew (tanacetum parthenium) and ginger (zingiber officinale). Feverfew and ginger contain various compounds, including sesquiterpene lactones and flavonoids, which have previously been shown to be effective anti-inflammatory agents.
Historically, these compounds have been taken orally as a preventative measure (prophylaxis) for migraine, but with limited success. Poor product quality, and the destruction of the ingredients by the stomach or liver (the “first-pass effect”), combined to severely limit the efficacy of these products in the past. In contrast, GelStat’s approach combines an effective formulation of high quality ingredients and a new sublingual delivery system that rapidly and effectively delivers active ingredients to the bloodstream – for relief that is often noticeable within minutes.
In line with the aforementioned data, two clinical trials have been conducted on GelStat® Migraine, both yielding positive results. The first was an open label study that was performed by Roger K. Cady, M.D. and Curtis P. Schreiber, M.D., both of ClinVest, the research division of the Headache Care Center in Springfield, Missouri. Click here to access the full report.
The second was a double blind study performed by Dr. Sheena K. Aurora. Dr. Aurora is a co-director of the Swedish Headache Center in Seattle, a specialty headache clinic that treats more than 3,000 patients each year. She is also board-certified in neurology and electro-diagnostic medicine as well as has additional qualifications in clinical neurophysiology. Click here to access the full report.
Unlike typical pills and capsules, GelStat® Migraine starts to work almost immediately. Its sublingual delivery system allows active ingredients to reach the bloodstream faster and more effectively. The Company’s delivery system is believed to enhance the efficacy of the feverfew and ginger in GelStat Migraine, including its speed of action – transforming a historically marginally - effective prophylactic medication into a very effective acute medication. Anecdotal patient reports indicate that GelStat® Migraine often provides migraine relief within minutes, and without any significant side effects. GelStat® Migraine has been reported to provide migraine sufferers with many benefits, including:
- Fast onset of action
- No reported side effects
- Cost effective migraine relief
- Available OTC, without a prescription
- Pre-measured, single-dose dispensers are convenient, safe and effective
- Clinically validated effectiveness
