Research Facts
A Native American medicinal staple, the bark of wild cherry is used for its medicinal properties; it is most commonly used to treat symptoms of respiratory ailments, such as colds and bronchitis; its sedative, drying, and expectorant properties make it a common ingredient in cough syrups; also used to treat pain and digestive disorders. Cherry bark is great at combating dry and irritable coughs. Overuse of cherry bark can be toxic.
