Burdock root  is a food, and has been used for thousands of years to support humanity, and studies validate what's been recognized through Herbalism + cultural use for centuries. Burdock  has been used therapeutically in Europe, North America and Asia for hundreds of years. The primary herbal uses of Burdock come from its bitter principles. These stimulate the digestive tract, including the liver and pancreas. As such, it is a mild laxative and also helps to lower blood sugar. By activating the liver, it helps rid the body of toxins. Burdock also has mild diuretic properties, further promoting the elimination of toxins via urine. Burdock is also used to treat chronic inflammatory conditions such as rheumatism or arthritis, and skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.

In the root, the active ingredients have been found to "detoxify" blood in terms of TCM and promote blood circulation to the skin surface, improving the skin quality/texture and curing skin diseases like eczema. Antioxidants and antidiabetic compounds have also been found in the root. Arctium lappa L. root (burdock root) has long been recommended for the treatment of different diseases in traditional Chinese medicine. Burdock root possesses anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and anti-microbial activities. Numerous pharmacological effects have been demonstrated in vitro and in vivo by Burdock and its bioactive metabolites, including antimicrobial, anti-obesity, antioxidant, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, anti-allergic, antiviral, gastroprotective, hepatoprotective, and neuroprotective activities.
