Meadowsweet's high content of aspirin-like compounds (salicylic aldehyde and methyl salicylate) makes it an excellent analgesic and antirheumatic without the side effects of aspirin. It is aromatic, anti-inflammatory, astringent, diuretic (taken with cool water) and diaphoretic (taken with hot water); is also stomachic and a gastric antacid that soothes stomach mucosa and normalizes its secretions.
