Organic Meadowsweet Leaves
Botanical Name: Filipendula Ulmaria
1. Treat colds: Meadowsweet has anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties that make it an effective aid to treat cold and related symptoms.
2. Aid digestions: Meadowsweet contains salicylate that helps protect the inner lining of the stomach. This helps to provide relief from acid indigestion effectively.
3. Lower inflammation: Meadowsweet is used in traditional folk medicine as an aid for inflammation, joint pain, gout, arthritis, and rheumatism. The salicylate content in Meadowsweet lowers joint inflammation and its analgesic activity eases the pain in the body. It also promotes the health of connective tissues.
4. Prevent bacterial infections: Meadowsweet has salicylic acid that helps to treat skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne.
Avoid: Do not use it if you are sensitive to aspirin or similar products. It should not be used by children under the age of 16 with high fevers, particularly if the cause may be viral, because of the rare but very real risk of Reyes syndrome. It is not recommended for use by those taking blood-thinning medications.
