INGREDIENTS & FURTHER INFORMATION
WHITE WILLOW SIDE EFFECTS
As long as suggested serving sizes are adhered to, this supplement should be totally safe to take. However, all salicylates are generally known to have possible negative side effects including gastrointestinal bleeding, ulcers, stomach pains, or general gastrointestinal problems. Taking much more than the recommended daily dosage may result in skin rash, inflammation, vomiting, dizziness, nausea and tinnitus.
While not thoroughly researched, White Willow should not be given to children in order to alleviate any pain or fever brought on by conditions such as flu or chickenpox, as it is possible that it could lead to development or Reyes’ Syndrome (a syndrome which is normally brought on by use of aspirin on children). Those that have ulcers, gastrointestinal sores or other problems should avoid this drug as well. Anyone taking medication for blood-thinning purposes should not that White Willow Bark may magnify the effects. For any medication concern at all, it is always best to talk with a doctor before taking this supplement in order to avoid negative drug interactions.
Anyone that has developed sensitivity to aspirin should also avoid this extract. Talk with a doctor if you are unsure whether your own medical condition will have a negative reaction with White Willow before use. Women who are pregnant or nursing should avoid this product due to a lack of information on the matter.
This supplement tastes rather bitter and does not dissolve easily in water. It can, however, be mixed into a tea with some hot water and sweetener to detract from the bad flavor. Natural sources of salicin are more readily absorbed by the body than are synthetic sources such as aspirin. This should be taken into account when determining whether White Willow Bark Extract is right for you. This product should be stored in an area that is free from light, heat and moisture in order to preserve potency of the extract.
I use this when my muscles are tired instead of using Advil. White willow bark is the natural tree bark derivative and I appreciate that it has no side effects like Advil or commercial pain relievers. It is not a good tasting product nor does it mix well but I use it accordingly, just the bulk powder on a spoon. Next time I might try the capsules but you can't beat the price and shipping is always fast.*

White Willow Bark has been used to combat fevers and pain by our ancestors for thousands of years. It may be one of the oldest herbs known. My experience with Willow Bark in the past is with pieces of the actual bark which I used in a tea. This form being powder seems much more concentrated. I am recovering from being very sick and had what I have called Fiber myalgia which comes with a great deal of muscle pain. I do not use modern medicines drugs. I have a long list of natural products that I use for pain and this is one of them. I plan to make capsules from the powder. Although this product is great for pain and fever it is also a valuable source of natural benefits like antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and blood thinning benefits. After all it protects a tree. The medicine called Bayer aspirin is only the synthetic form without these natural benefits.
For information Bayer (a German Company) Aspirin was originally made from White Willow Bark. Bayer spend years analyzing this bark and finally in 1897 isolated its main “active ingredient” salicylic acid. They then created the process of putting this ingredient into pill for. By 1899, Bayer was selling it around the world. Its popularity grew during the Spanish Spanish flu pandemic of 1918. The product was soon being referred to as A Wonder Drug. The medicine called Bayer aspirin is only the synthetic form without these natural benefits. Bayer also had the first form of penicillin called prontosil the first Antibiotic a (Sulfonamide drug) later replaced by penicillin my Merck. Bayer they acquired Merck.
Aspirin is now all synthetic without any natural benefits and I feel has many more side effects then the real thing. *

Recently purchased this product as a source of salicylate. I like the water soluble nature of this product. The bitter taste can be masked by both non-caloric sweeteners and sugar or honey.*

Took the extract to relieve a pulled calf muscle. Was very effective in reducing swelling and pain relief.*

I have never tried White Willow Bark so I have no comparison but can tell you that product looked fresh and was packaged nicely with sealable bags that keep out the light.
The product has a very acrid taste which was unexpected. I read that you can make a tea so I added hot water and lots of honey. I have only had need to use it once as I wanted to try it for some occasional pain that I get from an enlarged spleen. Since getting the White Willow Bark I have only had the pain once. After drinking the solution it did seem to aid with the pain in a short while.
I am going to look for empty capsules and encapsulate the powder before using again. If you find it hard to stomach bitter taste, I would recommend the powder in capsules, which is how I will order next time.
As for the company, the customer service is good, product arrived expediently and product looked great.*

I am waiting on both my hips to be replaced. The pain relief from the Bark extract is amazing. A quarter teaspoon in the morning, and it gave me all day mobility. It kept the Arthritis away and made the day, much more enjoyable to experience.*

I have not taken this internally so I have no idea how it works that way.
I make my own skin products and great skin care starts with a clean face. I use a toner in my AM routine as my AM routine does not entail washing my face, but rather using the toner. The following is the recipe that I use. It may not work for everyone, but it does work for me.
> 8 oz of distilled water (you do not want minerals in your skin care products)
> 2 oz of witch hazel astringent, U.S.P. w/ 14% alcohol (plain jane stuff found at big box stores)
> 1/8 teaspoon Willow Bark Extract
1. Mix the water and the witch hazel together in the container where you are planning on storing the toner.
2. Take a few ounces of mixture and put in a shot glass or something similar, add Willow Bark Extract and stir well.
3. Put shot glass content back into the rest of the water witch hazel container.
WILL BE BROWN IN COLOR.
Always shake container well before using.
Swipe over face to remove grim and other impurities.
Your face SHOULD be dry feeling.
You would follow the toner up with your homemade, fresh, non-oxidized, Vitamin C/MSM/ hyaluronic acid and Vitamin E serum (Bulk supplements has these ingredients).
The Bulk supplements willow bark extract mixes well and seems to be stronger than the other extract I had been getting. Using only 1/8 teaspoon of this a month, makes this an incredible value.

As I hoped, was able to use larger amounts than synthetic aspirin, with almost no ulcer type affects. Taste pretty bad, so either get some gel capsoles or man up, and just do it. Very good quality of material and packing, and worth the price.*

Regarding the product itself: I'm taking it to treat an immune system imbalance, and it will be awhile before I know if it acheives its desired effects. The taste is truly ghastly! However, I can say that I'm delighted to have found Bulk Supplements where I can obtain pure products at such reasonable prices. I've placed several orders now and all have arrived rapidly and in good condiion. *

This product works great for aches and pains. I did not have any issues such as stomach pain that comes along with many prescription drugs. Only downside is that the powder melts down fairly easily so you will have to keep in a cool dry environment for adequate shelf life*

I am so happy to have found bulksupplements.com. They speak the truth when they say their prices can't be beat and customer service is excellent. I have ordered twice with them and both experiences have been great -- both with the Hyaularonic Acid and the White Willow Bark extract. Shipping is quick too!. Their products are packed well to preserve freshness. I will definitely buy from them again. *
