Featuring 5 pound Gobo Burdock from Japonica Environment Farm.
Burdock root is a good source of potassium, fiber, amino acids, calcium, and antioxidants, which can help boost immunity within the body. The root is also popularly dried and powdered or made into an oil extract for use as a dietary supplement as it has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. In Chinese medicine, Burdock root is combined with other ingredients to make a sore throat remedy and treatment for colds. It is also considered to be a digestive aid and diuretic.
