Getting to Know: Burdock Root

At one glance, one may wonder what in the world is this? Burdock root also known as niúbàng (牛蒡) in Chinese is a vegetable that originated in Asia and Europe. It has been used in holistic medicine for decades to combat a variety of conditions.

Burdock is also considered one of the most powerful and reliable blood tonics of herbalism. Traditional Chinese practitioners often talk about detoxifying the body or purifying the blood, and practitioners of traditional medicine say burdock may purify the blood. This belief in burdock's purification benefits could be due to its ability to fight some infections and bacteria. In general, burdock will move the body into a state of integration and health.
