Willow Bracket lives in North Amerika and Europe. In North America, it’s most commonly found on birch trees, while in Europe it’s prevalent on willow trees. It causes the decomposition of the dead wood called white rot. It has been used in traditional Chinese medicine and in other oriental countries for the treatment of various diseases, including cancer. Native Americans use its ashes to increase the buzz of chewing tobacco. This practice is especially widespread in Alaska.

Willow Bracket contains polysaccharides, especially βglucan, steroids, flavonoids, coumarins, styrylpyrones, macrolides, and sesquiterpenes. It is the most common source of hispidin, a secondary metabolite investigated in research devoted to cancer, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, and viral diseases.

Willow Bracket may be beneficial for cancer, multiple sclerosis, heart attack, stroke, injury recovery, liver damage, and diabetes.
