What is Swanson White Willow Bark?

We date back to Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, to read about some of the first medicinal application of White Willow bark. He would recommend to anyone suffering from fever or inflammation to chew a little of the bark to remedy themselves.

Commonly found all over Europe, even the latin name (Salix Alba) for this mystical tree projects a creature of rare beauty and power. It comes as no surprise then that Swanson White Willow Bark is steeped in myth and legend.

  • Used by Hippocrates & Ancient Chinese medicine as a painkiller
  • Used to synthesise aspirin
  • Ancient natural healer

It wasn't just the Greeks who embraced this amazing tonic either. There is evidence that the Assyrians and their near neighbours, the Egyptians, documented its use in ancient scrolls recovered from tombs. Even the Chinese were known to use in the treatment of headaches.

Packed full of a chemical known as Salicin, Swanson White Willow Bark is actually surprisingly similar to aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) in its molecular structure. During the 1800s, salicin was actually used to synthesise aspirin.

What is Swanson White Willow Bark used for?

Anti-inflammatories may not sound all that important but you'd be surprised how much we all need them. Any time we get injured, our bodies react by swelling to protect and heal that wound. This is a perfectly natural and necessary process.

Sometimes however, our bodies swell and react to nothing at all. This is a problem that can manifest itself in a number of ways. One of the worst examples of this arthritis. Fortunately, Swanson White Willow Bark can help to combat the unwanted inflammation and others too.

You may not have heard of Bursitis but it's actually a very painful condition caused by arthritis, the sacs between our joints get filled with unwanted fluids. For some time now research has been deepened to unravel the effects of Swanson White Willow Bark on these conditions and the results are compelling.

  • Eases pain & swelling from Arthritis and Bursitis
  • Can be used to treat headaches
  • Promising aid in battle against long term cardiovascular problems like Hypertension

Swanson White Willow Bark offers us all a very real, non irritating alternative to aspirin both as a painkiller and as an ongoing medicine for the effects of environmental stress on our hearts.
