Burdock root is best known for its liver support action, and blood cleansing properties. Because of this alterative action, it often has the downstream effect of helping to resolve chronic skin issues, which are often related to an overburdened liver and high toxic load.
Burdock is also quite supportive of the urinary tract and has mild diuretic action, thus it may be a beneficial long term ally for those who deal with frequent or chronic UTI's. Burdock may also help to prevent or dispel kidney stones.
High quality extractions of burdock root contain lots inulin, a polysaccharide that can promote gut health by feeding the good bacteria in the gut microbiome. Additionally, burdock has a mild bitter action, and can improve the secretion of bile, both of which can improve digestion when used before meals or as a digestive tonic.
