About Burdock Tincture: Burdock has a strong taproot that grows straight down into the soil with confidence and offers us this same sense of grounding and strength. In Japan, and in other parts of the world, Burdock is enjoyed as a traditional food. The nutritive flavor is sweet, mild, and mildly bitter.
Burdock root is truly dynamic in that it both nourishes and helps clear metabolic waste from the body, and is considered to be alterative. This means that Burdock supports both the elimination pathways of the body by ensuring healthy liver, kidney, bowel, and lymphatic function, in addition to encouraging strong digestion and assimilation of nutrients. Chock full of prebiotics, Burdock root nourishes and feeds the beneficial gut flora in the digestive tract and acts as a mild bitter tonic. As a result, this incredible and humble herb promotes healthy, clear skin. Burdock is very supportive during seasonal transitions, especially in fall and spring, and during life transitions such as post-partum, menopause, changing jobs, when moving or traveling, or when life situations unground you.
