Burdock (Arctium lappa L.) is a stout biennial plant native to Asia and Europe, but introduced and naturalized in North America by European settlers. Its roots have been historically used by oriental cultures as a nutritious and strengthening food. Burdock roots are also strongly appreciated as an healing herb in folk Chinese and Japanese medicines; Burdock is considered being one of the nature’s best blood purifier and depurative through its detoxifying and protective effects on liver and kidneys. It is also said to relieve chronic inflammation related to skin disorders such as eczema, psoriasis, acne or sores. Anti-inflammation properties are also helpful in the treatment of rheumatism, arthritis or gout. Finally, active root components are believed to have antimicrobial activities.
