Do some inside-the-body housecleaning with burdock. Burdock turns on the tap and clears out waste products. It will help you sweat and urinate and detoxify. It will also help ease any aches and creaks in your bones by scrubbing out deposits that have hardened around the joints. You won’t have to wait until spring to start cleaning out the cobwebs!
Each ml contains 250 mg of organically grown burdock root (Arctium lappa). It is a 1:4 root extract in a non-medicinal base of 40% gluten-free grain alcohol and purified water, with organically grown licorice root as a natural flavour enhancer.
Burdock is used traditionally in Herbal Medicine to help remove accumulated waste products via the kidneys, skin and mucus membranes.
For best results, take burdock on an empty stomach, which means about 15 minutes before a meal or snack, or at least 1 hour after.
Adults 18 and over: take 4 ml, 2 times per day.
For best absorption, squirt the tincture under your tongue and hold it there for a few seconds, then swallow. If you want to remove the alcohol, add the dosage to a half cup of freshly boiled water. The alcohol will evaporate off. Let it cool, and add honey or a splash of juice to make a yummy, medicinal drink!
Caution: Do not use burdock if you are pregnant or allergic to plants of the daisy family. If you find that you are developing any sort of hypersensitivity then stop using this herb right away. Please talk to your healthcare practitioner before using burdock if you are breastfeeding or have diabetes. And always talk to your healthcare practitioner if your symptoms hang on or get worse!
