Description
  • High-quality white willow bark extract
  • Standardized for salicin content (15%)
  • Strong anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect
  • Anticoagulant properties
  • An alternative to NSAIDs
  • Soothes the symptoms of cold and flu
  • Helpful in rheumatism
  • The natural equivalent of aspirin
  • Relieves migraine headache
  • Antifungal effect
  • Causes no irritation of the stomach

Nature's Way Willow is a dietary supplement composed of white willow bark extract standardized for salicin content, supplemented with a small amount of plant’s powdered bark.

The preparation works similarily to aspirin. It relieves pain, fights inflammation and promotes lowering of fever. It is safe for the body and does not irritate the stomach mucosa. It is used in rheumatoid arthritis or migraine therapies, supports the treatment of flu and cold. Due to its anticoagulant properties, it can also be used in stroke and heart attack prophylaxis.

White willow (Salix alba L.) is a common, tall tree from the Salicaceae family. For therapeutic purposes its most primarily used part is bark (less frequently leaves), which is a rich source of bioactive substances with analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antipyretic effects.

The prevalent substances contained in the tree’s bark are phenolic glycoside known as salicin and its derivatives. Also noteworthy are flavonoids, phenolic acids and catechin and its polymers. Although salicin is most often mentioned substance in the context of white willow,  researchers emphasize that the healing properties of this plant stem from the synergistic action of all the compounds present in the bark.

The plant-based equivalent of aspirin
White willow bark extract can be regarded as a natural and safe substitute for aspirin and popular NSAIDs. In some countries, powdered white willow bark is commonly administered along with aspirin to enhance the therapeutic effect and minimize the risk of side effects.

Orally-administered salicin and its derivatives contained in the bark (salicortin, tremulacin, triandrin, vimalin, fragilin, populin) are metabolized to salicylic acid. They give practically the same effects as synthetic acetylsalicylic acid.

Due to the time required for the metabolism of organic salicylates, their therapeutic effects appear a bit later. However, it is worth noting that they last longer and cause no side effects typical for aspirin, and NSAIDs.

Anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect
The mechanism of action responsible for the analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties of the white willow bark extracts includes the inhibition of COX-1 and COX-2 cyclooxygenases. These enzymes catalyze the transformation of phospholipids of cell membranes, as a result of which prostanoids are formed, which include pro-inflammatory prostaglandins. The most important inhibitors of cyclooxygenases are, by all means, salicin and its derivatives, but the research indicates that for anti-inflammatory effect equally important are flavonoids, tannins, and compounds with antioxidant potential.

In double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials, white willow bark extracts have been shown to reduce chronic low back pain as efficiently as regular anti-inflammatory drugs.

Similar studies have been conducted with people suffering from migraine headaches. Patients treated with white willow bark extracts experienced a significant improvement in well-being, while no significant changes were observed in the placebo group.

Anticoagulant effect
White willow bark extracts were tested for anticoagulant activity. Since several studies have proven their effectiveness in this area, they can be potentially used in stroke prophylaxis.

Clinical trials confirmed that salicin and its derivatives impair the release of ADP, which plays a key role in initiating signals leading to a shape change of blood platelets and the synthesis of thromboxane A2. Hence, the substances will presumably inhibit platelet aggregation and they will display an anticoagulant effect.

Antifungal activity
The bioactive compounds isolated from the white willow bark are fungicidal and antimicrobial. They inhibit the growth of bacteria responsible for the formation of acne and are effective against pathogens that cause periodontium diseases.

Safe for the gastrointestinal tract
In addition to many advantages, synthetic acetylsalicylic acid has one serious disadvantage – it impairs mucous secretion in the stomach walls and directly irritates the mucous membranes of the gastrointestinal tract. It significantly increases the risk of perforation and gastrointestinal bleeding.

However, white willow bark extract has such an advantage over the acetylsalicylic acid that despite the identical mechanism of action, it has no adverse effect on the gastrointestinal tract. Clinical trials have confirmed that there are no risks of damage to the gastric or duodenal mucosa followed the use of extracts.

In conclusion, Nature's Way Willow is a great alternative to synthetic NSAIDs. Excellent substitute in the treatment of pain complaints and diseases accompanied by inflammation and fever. It can also be used in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases.

Formulations of the white willow bark are useful in the treatment of diarrhea, inflammation of the body at elevated temperatures and certain rheumatic diseases. Powdered white willow bark is used as a cosmetic allowing to reduce the sweating of feet.
