Cramp Bark

Cramp bark’s name comes from its use as a pain treatment for cramps, particularly menstrual cramps. Some research indicates that cramp bark fruit extracts help relax muscles and blood vessels, which can relieve pain and reduce blood pressure.

This plant 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.

In alternative medicine, viburnum bark is touted as a natural remedy for the following health problems:

  • Arthritis
  • Chronic pain
  • High blood pressure
  • Inflammation
  • Low back pain
  • Menopausal symptoms
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Restless legs syndrome
  • Tension headaches
We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
