The willow family includes a number of different species of deciduous trees and shrubs native to Europe, Asia, and some parts of North America . Some of the more commonly known are white willow/European willow ( Salix alba ), black willow/pussy willow ( Salix nigra ), crack willow ( Salix fragilis ), purple willow ( Salix purpurea ), and weeping willow ( Salix alba ). The willow bark sold in Europe and the United States usually includes a combination of the bark from white, purple, and crack willows.
Salicin (C13H18O7) is an alcoholic beta-glycoside. It is closely related chemically to aspirin and has a very similar action in the human body. Used as an analgesic and, formerly, in veterinary practice, as a bitter stomachic, antirheumatic and analgesic.
Willow bark is used to ease pain and reduce inflammation, and there is good evidence that it is effective as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory. Researchers believe that the chemical salicin, found in willow bark, is responsible for these effects. However, studies have identified several other components of willow bark which have antioxidant, fever-reducing, antiseptic, and immune-boosting properties. Some studies have shown willow is as effective as aspirin for reducing pain and inflammation (but not fever), and at a much lower dose. Researchers theorize that may be due to the other compounds in the herb. More research is needed.
