WHITE WILLOW BARK
Comes in a 3x4 pouch
Aides with: arthritis, dry mouth, lower back pain and osteoporosis
White Willow Bark (Salicacea alba) was recommended over 2,000 years ago by Greek physician Dioscorides to treat lower back pain. During the Middle Ages, willow bark was used in Europe to relieve pain & fever. In 1899, the Bayer Company in Germany introduced a drug composed of a synthetic chemical compound similar to the active compound found naturally in willow bark- and named it aspirin.
-Like aspirin, willow bark is a proven painkiller, but without many of aspirin’s side effects. As with aspirin, uses for willow bark include fever, colds, minor infections, acute and chronic rheumatic disorders, mild headaches, and pain caused by inflammation. Willow bark is also high in tannins, suggesting that it may be of some use to gastrointestinal disorders.
-Studies have shown that willow bark has pain-relieving effects on people with a chronic lower back and osteoporotic pain within a month.
