Burdock plant

Burdock root (Arctium lappa) medicinal herb, also known as Gobo root, has been used for centuries throughout the world as a medicinal herb to cure illness and disease.  It is native to Europe and Asia, but has no limitation as it is now worldwide.  The polyacetylenes found in it have antibacterial and anti-fungal effects and it is from the Compositae family.

It is among all biennial root crops. A plant that requires two years to complete its life-cycle, germinating and growing in its first year, then producing its flowers and fruit in its second year, after which it usually dies. Therefore after two years burdock usually dies.

Burdock is a good source of minerals as in manganese, phosphorous, iron, chromium, and silicon. It is one of the foremost detoxifying herbs, amongst the rest. Some people find the root edible, while others prefer the tea which at present is a source of treating cancer.

The common names are Gobo root, Beggar's buttons, Great burdocks, Happy major, Edible burdock, Burr seed, Thorny burr, Cockle button, Clotbur, Hardock, Happy major and Arctium lappa.  Some of its medicinal properties alterative, diuretic, diaphoretic, antibacterial and anti fungal.

It is used to cleanse the blood, cures skin problems such as acne, rheumatism, canker sores, eczema, psoriasis, measles and chicken pox, boils, carbuncles, gout, scrofula, canker sores, sciatica, gonorrhea, syphilitic sores and leprosy. It is truly a multipurpose herb and natural remedy for all skin ailments and was therefore named the "King of herbs" for all chronic skin conditions.
