Burdock root, long praised in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Japanese, and European cultures, is a medicinal and nourishing addition to teas, warm dishes, raw juices, and fermenting. Here are three of my favorite reasons why one (especially women) might consider tossing it into your next batch of fermented vegetables:
STIMULATES BIFIDOCATERIA GROWTH | loaded with inulin fiber which promotes the growth of bifidobacteria in the large intestine. Bifidobacteria promote microbes that are naturally present in the gut which destroy harmful bacteria. This has been shown to promote easy bowel movements and improve the immune system.
VITAMIN B6 RICH | this vitamin is needed for a healthy nervous system, normal brain function, and to also help your body make hormones—which regulate your internal clock and moods. Present and rich in burdock root, it can be very helpful in controlling PMS symptoms and assisting in hormonal imbalance.
BLOOD PURIFYING | because of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity, it aids in circulation to the skin, helping to detoxify the epidermal tissues. This makes it a popular detoxifying agent that produces a diuretic effect on the body and aids the filtering of impurities from the bloodstream.
