Natural White Willow vs Rimadyl®
White Willow Bark is a natural alternative to Pfizerís Carprofen, marketed as Rimadyl®.
University of Maryland Medical Center: White willow bark is a tree native to Europe and Asia, and the name ìWhite Willowî comes from the color of the leaves, which are covered with fine white hairs. Its use dates back to the time of Hippocrates (400 BC) when patients were advised to chew on the bark to reduce fever and inflammation. Willow bark has been used throughout the centuries in China and Europe, and continues to be used today for the treatment of pain (particularly lower back pain and osteoarthritis), headache, and inflammatory conditions such as bursitis and tendinitis.
The bark of White Willow contains salicin which is a chemical similar to aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) and is thought to be responsible for the pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects of the herb. In the 1800s, salicin was used to develop aspirin.
The German company Bayer eventually created a synthetic, less harsh derivative of salicylic acid, called acetylsalicylic acid (ASA), and mass-produced it under the name ìaspirin.î Despite this, aspirin is still known for stomach irritation and blood thinning.
Researchers have also suggested that willow bark is more effective than aspirin because of other active compounds found in the bark but not the drug. Animal research at Cairo University compared a willow bark extract to acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) and found that a willow bark extract was as effective as aspirin in reducing inflammation, even though the salicin content was lower than an equivalent dose of acetylsalicylic acid (ASA).
Researchers believe that salicin, the chemical found in willow bark, is responsible for the barkís effects and studies have also 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) at a much lower dose than aspirin. While as effective as aspirin, willow barkís effect has been found to last longer than aspirin even though it may take longer to kick in.
