ANALGESIC

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

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.

Dosage

400mg one to three times daily.

 

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.
