A powerhouse of antioxidants. 2010 Research showed burdock root contains multiple types of powerful antioxidants, including quercetin, luteolin, and phenolic acids that protect cells from free radical damage and help treat and prevent a number of different health conditions.
Burdock root has long been used to purify the blood. A 2011 study found that burdock root effectively detoxified blood, promoted increased circulation, and may inhibit some types of cancer. The study also found that burdock seeds had “potent inhibitory effects” on the growth of tumors caused by cancers like pancreatic carcinoma. While more research is needed to determine the full effects of burdock seeds on different types of cancers and tumors, this is a significant finding.
Burdock root has also long been used to treat skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, and eczema. Its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties can also help resolve skin issues when it’s applied topically to the skin. One study from 2014 even found evidence that burdock root may help treat topical burns.
Another traditional use of burdock root is as an aphrodisiac. More research is needed on humans, but anecdotal evidence supports this claim. Also, a 2012 study on male rats found that the extract of burdock root had an aphrodisiac effect and increased the amount of sexual behavior in the male rats.
