Type, Size & Quantity

Aspirin, the headache reliever, actually derives a similar chemical to that which is contained in White Willow (the one associated with White Willow is called Salicin) in the formula they use to make their low grade pain reliever. But White Willow extract is often thought to be a better alternative to Aspirin because it does not have the negative side effects of thinning the stomach lining or the blood.

Health Benefits Provided by White Willow Bark Extract

Salicin and the other antioxidants that make up willow bark can go on to prevent the healthy cells in the body from being damaged by harmful free radicals.

WHITE WILLOW SIDE EFFECTS

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.

TIPS

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.

Opens up my sinuses

I've used WWB before as a natural aspirin to open up my sinuses and this one from BS seems to work well. Also find that it helps my stamina in the gym and gives a bit of an extra pump.

white willow bark extract powder

I started taking this product and it did get rid of my headaches. I followed the recommended doses,but I started having gastrointestinal bleeding. So if you do take this product take very small doses then recommended. The taste was bitter but it was not unbearable. A good pure product, but I guess I have a very sensitive stomach. and you definitely need to keep this product in a cool place or it will clump. I got some on my fingers and it kind of melted then got real sticky. Hope this helps , thanks

Strong taste

Ive never tried this before, So the bitterness or intensity was surprising. But im used to intense supplements like castor and epsom salt. Seems pure, good quality. Start out small or mix in something.
