White Willow Bark ~ Nature’s Pain Manager

Posted at 11:00 - July 11th, 2019 - Megan & Jae - Education Guides

White Willow Bark has a long history of being used therapeutically. As early as the first century A.D., preparations made from the bark were used for pain. In the twentieth century, European scientists began working with glucoside salicin, a critical ingredient found in Willow, to create a pain-management compound. Salicylic acid was the result. White Willow Bark was the first aspirin-like substance produced commercially for pain management.
