Meadowsweet is known to be rich in salicylic acid which is effective for pain relief and was touted many centuries ago as being an excellent remedy for moderate pain, especially pain in a fixed area of the body such as headaches.
As a digestive aid, the Meadowsweet herb is hard to beat. It soothes and protects the mucous membranes of the digestive tract and stomach lining whilst reducing acidity. Studies have found that Meadowsweet can also promote the healing of chronic ulcers and prevent lesions from developing in the stomach. It is used in the treatment of heartburn, hyperacidity, gastritis and peptic ulceration. Its gentle astringency is useful in treating diarrhea, especially in children.
Containing salicylic acid, Meadowsweet is an effective herb against inflammation.
To make meadowsweet tea: 2 -6g dried herb infused into 1 cup of boiling water taken 3 times per day.
