Nature's Herbs - White Willow Bark - 100 Capsules
Nature's Herbs White Willow Bark grows wild in moist, fertile soil in Europe and North America. A daily serving of Nature's Herbs White Willow Bark delivers 1,125 mg of high-quality white willow bark. The bark of the white willow tree has been used therapeutically since the times of the ancient Egyptians and Hippocrates. In the 1800s, European scientists isolated what they believed to be the active component of white willow bark, a compound called salicin.
Parts Used and Where Grown
The willow tree grows primarily in central and southern Europe, although it is also found in North America. The bark is used to make herbal extracts.
Historical or Traditional Use
Willow bark was used traditionally by herbalists for fever, headache, pain, and rheumatic complaints. In the late 19th century, the constituent salicylic acid was isolated from willow bark and went on to become the model for the development of aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid).
About Nature's Herbs
Twinlab was created in 1968 when founder David Blechman leveraged his 20 years of expertise in the pharmaceutical industry to develop and market a liquid protein supplement. Working out of his family’s garage, he and his wife named their developing business Twinlab, after the couple’s two sets of twins. Sales soared, and in the 1980s, Twinlab branched out to a broader range of vitamins, minerals, herbs and teas.
Since 1968, the Twinlab brand has been the trusted leader for innovative, high performance health and wellness products. In addition to the extensive line of vitamins, minerals and sports nutrition formulas of its namesake brand, Twinlab Corporation also manufactures and sells other category leaders, including the Metabolife line of diet and energy products; Alvita teas, established in 1922 as one of the country's first herbal tea lines, and Nature's Herbs, a complete line of herbals and phytonutrients.
