Burdock root has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine as a blood cleanser and remedy for various skin maladies and common illnesses such as cold, measles, throat pain, and tonsillitis.
Burdock root grows all over the world as a common weed and is easy to cultivate in a garden. It can be eaten raw, like a carrot. It is now commonly sold in health food stores. Choose burdock that is crispy, rather than rubbery. Burdock root is often found as an ingredient in teas.
