Yellow dock root is a blood purifier and general detoxifier, especially for the liver. The herb, properly known as Rumex Crispus, supports detoxification from a few angles. First off, yellow dock root stimulates bile production which helps digestion, particularly of fats. Yellow dock root can stimulate a bowel movement to help remove lingering waste from your intestinal tract; it also increases the frequency of urination to assist in toxin elimination. Maintaining an efficient rate of waste elimination can help prevent toxins from accumulating in the liver, gallbladder and bloodstream, and helps circumvent the associated problems.
Yellow dock root (Rumex crispus, curly dock) has antioxidant, antimicrobial, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic and antipyretic properties. Yellow dock stimulates bile production, aiding in the digestion of fat, and stimulates bowel movement to clear the digestive tract. Yellow dock has been used in traditional medicine as a blood purifier and liver and gallbladder cleanser and to clean the lymphatic system.
