Botanical Name: Arctium lappa Capsules Per Bottle: 100 mg Per Capsule: 495
Arctium lappa is an herbaceous perennial in the Asteraceae family with large, hairy leaves and thistle-like flowers growing on long stalks. Native to Europe and Asia, burdock is now naturalized in North America and Australia where it is oftentimes considered a noxious weed. For millennia, its large taproot has been an important botanical in Western folk herbalism as well as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
The roots are considered a vegetable in some countries and are often incorporated into culinary dishes such as stir fries and soups. In TCM, burdock has a long history of use for its affinity for skin support and is associated with lung and stomach meridians. It is considered energetically cooling with acrid, bitter, and sweet flavors. Traditionally, burdock root has been prepared as a decoction, as a cold infusion, or macerated as an extract. It is often incorporated into herbal formulations as it works well with many diverse botanicals.
Our burdock capsules are made with organic ground burdock root and provide an easy to use method for receiving the wellness benefits of this appreciated herb.
Ingredients Organic burdock root and pullulan capsule. These vegan capsules are made from pullulan which is naturally fermented from tapioca.
