SOLARAY BURDOCK ROOT 100'S
Burdock root (arctium lappa, niu bang zi, lappa) is a most well-known detoxifying herbs used in Western and Chinese herbal medicine. It’s been used for hundreds of years and Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurvedic medicine both recommend it for detoxifying, removing impurities, as a diuretic, etc. Since an overload of toxins and an unhealthy liver is believed by many acne patients to be the true cause of acne, burdock is one of the more popular herbal supplements among acne patients.
A 1967 German study reported in the book "Encyclopedia of Herbal Medicine" found that burdock root contains polyacetylenes, antifungal and antibiotic qualities that help fight acne-causing bacteria and fungi that infect cracked skin. Its diuretic action aids in eliminating impurities through the digestive system, rather than the skin where toxins can cause infections.
