Burdock Root Benefits

A herbal approach to to beauty focuses on restoring internal balance, often using cleansing herbs like Burdock root.  Burdock root is often used in Ayurvedic healing for skin conditions like acne , eczema and psoriasis.  In chinese medicine it is considered an aphrodisiac…just saying!

What are the Benefits of Burdock Root?

  • High in vitamins B1, B2, B3 & C
  • Good source of minerals – iron, manganese, silicon, and zinc
  • Boosts digestions and gets the digestive juices flowing
  • Is a diuretic  (great for PMS bloat) & increases bile flow
  • Great for your kidneys
  • Helps stabilize your blood sugar
  • Natural source of inulin which is a probiotic
  • Blood Purifier
When you are looking at burdock root, look for strong roots,not flimsy, it can be hard to find but I buy it at Whole Foods.  Is it expensive?  Yes but with all the beauty benefits of this root, I think it is worth it.  You have to juice the roots although I have heard of people grating them into salads but I haven’t.  You can also purchase burdock root capsules for about $14.99 for 100 capsules, 475 mg per capsule, Natures Way is the brand.

  1. I used to take burdock as a teenager for acne, and it seemed to help! I didn’t know all of these other benefits though, particularly its use for increasing bile flow. I’ve been having some digestive trouble lately, so I’ll give it a try and see if it helps!
