I remember when I first came into contact with the word burdock, my first reaction was, what part of the cow? It’s not a part of a cow. It’s a plant. A bit like a reduced version of Huaishan, with a thick black skin, it’s very inconspicuous. It is such a plant, but it is a hidden natural “tonic”. Burdock contains many vitamins and minerals needed by human body, such as cellulose, protein, calcium, phosphorus and iron. The content of carotene is 150 times higher than that of carrot, and the content of protein and calcium is the first among rhizomes. Burdock contains a lot of cellulose, which can stimulate the peristalsis of large intestine, help defecate, reduce cholesterol, toxins and waste in the body. Burdock has a special ingredient called “inulin”, which can promote the secretion of hormones. It can help the body develop muscles and bones and enhance physical strength.
