Almost all parts of the Burdock plant have both medicinal and nutritional value, but Burdock roots have been recently gained popularity as blood purifier, antioxidant support, and impressive source of dietary fiber. Traditional Chinese healers used Burdock roots together with other herbs to manage the symptoms of colds and sore throat. In Europe and Japan, Burdock is consumed as a vegetable for its amazing nutritional value and high levels of the dietary fiber inulin.
