If you find yourself in Japan, you will likely find earthy-tasting slices of "Gobo" root in your bowl of stew. Burdock has a long history of use as a medicine, but also as a nourishing vegetable staple in Japanese cookery. As a folk remedy, burdock is considered one of the best "alteratives" — or blood purifiers. As such, it is often used for healthy skin support and any other condition that results from the body being overly toxic. Our certified organic burdock root is freeze-dried and concentrated to ensure its utmost purity, potency, and herbal power.
