Cramp Bark has been traditionally used as a food source (berries) and as a plant remedy. Historically the eclectic physicians recommended it to support the body's adaptation associated with menstruation. It has also been found to be useful for the common complaints associated with normal menstrual cycles. As the plant name suggests, it can be used exactly for just that purpose! The bark contains methyl salicylate which is a weak acting precursor to the salicylic acid that is used in aspirin, but much less irritating to the gastric mucosa albeit weaker in its action. Also traditionally used to help relax bronchial and respiratory muscle spasms associated with cough.
