White Willow Extract
White willow bark has been used for centuries for natural pain and inflammation relief, as well as in the prevention of malaria. White willow contains a compound called salicylic acid. You may have heard this compound called by another name - aspirin! Scientists caught on to the powerful pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties of white willow and began to isolate and replicate this compound in a lab, creating what we know today as aspirin. Willow also contains a compound called salicin. Salicin contains an anti-malarial agent and has historically been used to cure malaria.
