After consuming the product, the participant will complete a Mankoski scale at 15 minutes, 30 minutes and 1 hour after taking the product. If needed the participant will be allowed to take alternative medication (alternative treatment) after an hour after taking the product. If alternative medication is taken, the participant will record this in their headache diary.

The subject will sign consent and complete the required surgery and questionnaires before taking the test product. • At the onset of the headache, the participant will start a Headache Diary and complete a 10-point Mankoski pain scale. • After completing the surveys, the participant will take test product.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
Understanding If HLNatural impacts the Intensity of Tension Headaches. Headaches.another intervention [ Time Frame: Stubjects will be evaluated for up to 60 days or 3 episodes of a headache ]

Throughout the study the subject will capture any adverse events that have occurred. All events will recorded in the subject's diary.
Outcome of Subjects Natural Behavior During the Clinical Trial [ Time Frame: 10-point Mankoski Scale and Headache Diary will be at the start of the headache, 15 minutes after start of the event, 30 minutes after start of event and 60 minutes after the start of the event. The activity will be repeated for up to 3 events. ]
Before the test product is taken the subject will complete a screening, demographic and baseline survey. At the end of the survey the researchers will use what is in the literature to help establish normal behavior. Upon completion of the study the participant will complete an exit study. The surveys and questionnaires will be used to establish normal behavior of the subject.
