Research indicates that burdock root tea is a powerful anti-inflammatory remedy. It is packed with antioxidants to protect the liver from toxic chemicals, allowing it to process the body’s naturally occurring steroids which are helpful in achieving hormonal balance. A mildly bitter herb, it stimulates the release of gastric juices and aids digestion.
This combination of qualities explains its traditional use in treating acne, eczema, endometriosis, psoriasis, and uterine fibroids. The tea can also be used as a wash to treat skin infections, eczema, and psoriasis.
