Burdock Root

Burdock Root
What it is: Burdock (arctium lappa) or bear herb. Its name, arctium, comes from the Greek word “άρκτος” (pronounced arctos), that is, bear. It is a native plant in Europe and North Asia, but today it is common in most parts of our planet, where it grows either as weed or as cultivated vegetable.

How it works: It is known for its medicinal properties, due to the substances concentrated in the plant root. Burdock root contains a high percentage of fructooligosaccharides (FOS), making it one of the most useful tools to enhance the beneficial enteric bacteria. It has soothing, anti-itch, antibacterial and antiseptic properties. It is suitable for skin protection and is effective against psoriasis and eczema. Its high inulin content promotes the growth of healthy bacteria for the body that can help support the healthy function of the immune and digestive systems; the essential oils it contains offer the skin unique hydration.
