D-Salicin:Salicyl alcohol glucoside.:Introduction and Its Benefit Applications.
Salicin (C13H18O7) is an alcoholic beta-glycoside which contains D-glucose. Salicin is an anti-inflammatory which is produced from all willow barks.Salicin is closely related chemically to aspirin and has a very similar action in the human body. When consumed, it is metabolized to salicylic acid.
When ingested, salicin (the active glycoside in white willow) is converted into salicylic acid. (This compound has been synthesized into acetylsalicylic acid, otherwise known as aspirin.) Salicylic acid is believed to be the consitutent responsible for mediating white willows analgesic (pain relieving) effects.
