This product is absolutely amazing.
I was super sceptical. I really didn't think it would work as well as Aspirin you buy but man o man was I wrong. It works way better and with no side effects. This is the find of the century for me. The quality is amazing. No nasties in the ingredients and suitable for most ages above 10. The packaging is easy to use.
I have RA, and have tried dozens of different supplements to help with the residual inflammation that is part of the day to day. Sometimes it’s active inflammation in the joints, and sometimes it’s pain from walking around on joints that are already damaged. Well this works. If I take it regularly (4 each day), I can almost completely avoid taking an NSAID.
This is a really good quality, NOW brand product! I've had to settle for other brands at times (when I've run out and had to try something from the store before my iHerb order was shipped) and they have never provided the same benefit as NOW. I've been taking Willow Bark Extract for years (with Boswellia Extract - also a NOW product!) for arthritis pain, with great improvement of my pain. Highly recommend!
For the record, I research A LOT before I incorporate an herb or supplement into my daily diet. White Willow Bark has been used for centuries, and for good reason. Due use caution, however, as WWB has similar properties to the factory-generated aspirin that is on store shelves (hence its ability to relieve pain). Please research as needed for your own individual needs and use as directed.
I have taken these mostly for ladies’ cramps. Haven’t tried for headaches or other aches. I sometimes get really terrible cramps and these seem to help a lot. At times I also take a drugstore medicine that I try to avoid unless I have to, but these seem to even enhance that. I consider this one of the MUST HAVE supplements.
I don’t take it everyday, only when I need it and it is even good for that kind of immediate use, unlike some supplements that you have to take consistently. Takes 1-2 hours or so to kick in.
so depending on your usage and needs, you may have different results, especially if you take them daily, but I think the quality and potency of these is really good. I also have the Solaray willow in rotation and that one is a little more gentle, but also good.
I’m really happy to have a natural ingredient pain relief because I don’t like taking the OTC things if I don’t have to. Really impressed with willow!
NOW Foods products are high quality supplements and products. Have never been disappointed with any purchase. These help me with inflammation and pain without the stomach upset of aspirin products. The ingredients have been used forever and it my age, that’s a blessing. Less pain, less inflammation and no upset stomach.
I bought this guided by Dr Berg on YouTube who I follow for natural pain relief & for pheripheral neuropathy. and I have been taking white willow bark instead of over the counter UK medicine from the pharmacy. it helps me with less pain / tingling / hypersensitivity. and helps me with the pain I feel from the cold all the time in the winter. and I also feel more calm and less anxious. recommended +++
I've been taking these for a short time in the evenings, for chronic pain. I've used Now brand supplements before, I think the quality is pretty good. These have an "herbal" smell, so I swallow them fast, because I don't want to taste them. I also take them after eating a little something, just to make sure they don't upset my sensitive stomach. I think they might be taking my pain down a notch so that I can get a little sleep at night.
I try to never take synthetic aspirin, I find the willow bark works quite well. Try to take it if you notice a headache coming on, as it takes a little longer to kick in, but tends to work longer on getting rid of a headache.
The Now brand is always great quality. The Willow Bark has helped me with some discomfort with my arm muscles. I like that the ingredients are easier on my stomach than aspirin. This is also an easy to take capsule.
