We love cherry trees for their beautiful blossoms and delicious fruit, but did you know that even the bark of a wild cherry tree has many health benefits? Wild cherry tree bark used to be a common ingredient with cough and cold medicines up until the 1940’s. The bark is an efficient expectorant and cough-suppressing agent. It helps clear your lungs and helps fight against bronchitis, emphysema, asthma, cold and flu congestion. The bark is also used as an anti-inflammatory remedy due to its ability to reduce muscle pain that is caused by strain and swelling as well as helping women ease menstrual cramps. 
Wild Cherry Bark is available as supplements and as a tea. Next time you’re feeling a cold coming on, grab yourself some wild cherry bark to ease those respiratory problems.
