White Willow Bark and Salicin:Risks of Abuse,Overdose and Sensitive.


White Willow Bark and Salicin:Risks of Abuse,Overdose and Sensitive.

Willow Bark Salix alba Salicin In its natural form salicin is relatively harmless, but synthetic commercial preparations can cause stomach upset if consumed in high doses.

 Many of the known side-effects of commercially prepared salicin products are absent when consuming natural white willow. However, just because white willow is a "natural" version of salicin, it does not follow that the natural substance is completely harmless. Herbal preparations are drugs; about this there should be no mistake. Abuse will lead to the same symptoms present when abusing commercially prepared synthetics.

 If one were to abuse salicin at all, one would be better off abusing the synthetic versions, as many of these drugs have a shorter half life than white willow. A shorter half-life will expedite the removal of the substance from the body and side-effects would terminate more quickly. Thus, by abusing white willow (a longer-acting natural salicin) one may suffer worse effects. It should be noted, however, that tolerance for natural salicin is generally much higher than tolerance for the synthetic versions, and thus one would have to far exceed label directions to notice toxic effects.

 Signs of overdose or side-effect can include nausea, ringing of the ears, fatique and irritability.

 Willow Bark Salix alba SalicinPersons who are sensitive to salacin products should not supplement with white willow, nor should individuals suffering from ulcers or gastric disorders. Those who suffer from allergies to salicylates should avoid white willow as supplementation can increase the risk of anaphylactic reaction.

 Under no circumstances should white willow be mixed with other pain relieving substances, nor should white willow be administered to children (persons under the age of 18).

 Standardized extracts of white willow bark are available,where total salicin intake is typically 60-120mg per day for relief of acute pain, fever or inflammation. For longer-term consumption as an adjunct to weight management and thermogenesis, smaller doses are generally tolerated much better.
