MEADOWSWEET

Meadowsweet has been used for centuries as an herbal remedy. It was used to treat gout and it has been used as a pain reliever for headaches, muscle aches, rheumatism and arthritis. It has similar pain relieving results as aspirin but Meadowsweet helps increase the secretion of the stomach mucus membrane. This helps avoid aspirin's side effects like stomach pain, bleeding, colic and ulcers.

Meadowsweet contains tannis which functions like an astringent. It also has an antiseptic or anti-bacterial function that helps in battling infections and relaxes stomach muscles. This relaxing effect is used in the treatment of insomnia. It also has diuretic properties that helps rid the body of toxic wastes as well as uric acid. It is also used for kidney stones.
