Pain is something that pretty much everyone has experienced in their lives. Our CHF #37 Relief may help to rid you of your pain. Research has shown the White Willow Bark, which is the main ingredient in CHF #37 Relief, has been known to be beneficial for pain relief and more. White Willow Bark was the basis for the synthesis of aspirin. History of the usage of White Willow Bark goes back as far as 500 BC when ancient Chinese healers began using it to control pain. Native Americans also discovered the value of the Willow tree for relieving pain from headaches and rheumatism and reducing fevers. White Willow Bark contains salicin, which the body converts to salicylic acid. It has the same effect on the body as aspirin without any of the side effects. The possible benefits of White Willow Bark today are that it may be an anti-inflammatory, a fever reducer, an analgesic, an anti-rheumatic, and an astringent. Specifically, it may help to relieve headaches; may help to ease pain associated with inflammatory conditions like rheumatism, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome; and may help to control fevers. White Willow Bark may also aid in your diet goals. Unlike aspirin, which can cause stomach irritation, White Willow contains tannins which are good for the digestive system. The University of Maryland Medical Center has found that, “willow bark is used to ease pain and reduce inflammation. There is good evidence that it does just that. 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 that 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 think that may be due to the other compounds in the herb. More research is needed.
