Burdock root is a powerful liver cleanser, according to Medical Medium. I agree! When I first started taking this many gallstones came out. Use this with plenty of water and squeezed lime/lemon to help your liver detox properly. This product is lighter in colour than other burdock supplements because of the freeze drying method, and for that reason, I think this burdock powder is superior to the others because this keeps more nutrients alive.
