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. Active constituents of cramp bark include Coumarin, Salicin, flavonoids and triterpenes such as ursolic acid, hydroxycoumarins, caffeic acid derivatives, phenolcarboxylic acids, and tannins.
