People often use White Willow Bark to reduce pain and inflammation. According to researchers, the chemical salicin in white willow bark is in charge of these properties. However, some studies show other components of this bark, including plant chemicals named flavonoids and polyphenols, have antioxidant, antiseptic, immune-boosting, and fever-reducing properties. Some studies also show willow works well as aspirin for relieving pain and inflammation, and at a lower dose. According to scientists, this may be thanks to other compounds present in this herb.  Here are many uses of White Willow Bark:

According to a study in the Journal of Rheumatology in 2004, people with osteoarthritis who take willow bark extract giving 240 mg of salicin reduce pain by 14 percent as compared to 2 percent in the placebo within a 2-week randomized controlled trial.
  9. Treat Sprained or Strained Ligaments and Muscles: The salicin in white willow bark is transformed into salicylic acid when entering your body. This acid helps to relieve inflammation & pain because it works as aspirin. Moreover, it also contains compounds called phenolic glycoside esters. When you take the bark internally, the microorganisms of your intestine will convert these compounds into saligenin. Then, saligenin will be oxidized in the liver & blood, producing salicylic acid. Salicylic acid may relieve pain by hindering the prostaglandins synthesis in the sensory nerves. Hence, you take white willow bark to reduce pain caused by the sprained or strained ligament and muscle.
