White Willow bark, certified organic by the Soil Association.

The active ingredient in white willow is salicin, which the body converts into salicylic acid. The first aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) was made from a different salicin-containing herb, meadowsweet, working in essentially the same way. All aspirin is now chemically synthesized. It is not surprising, then, that white willow bark is often called “herbal aspirin.

Potential applications: Salicin is useful in diseases accompanied by fever, rheumatic ailments, headache, toothache and other inflammatory conditions. Fever lowering.

Known contraindications: Avoid in cases of salicylate sensitivity.

Not to be given to children under 16 with flu-like symptoms, with Reyes Syndrome.

Avoid during pregnancy.

Interactions: Individuals with concerns about blood clotting and bleeding time should use aspirin and white willow with caution, as both have the potential to interfere with platelet aggregation and prolong bleeding time (i.e. a “blood-thinning” effect).

 Useful links: Pain relief – Turmeric, quercetin, flax seed oil, antioxidants, pycnogenol/grape seed extract.
