Yellow Dock is a plant with a long history and was even listed in Pliny the Elder’s “Herba Britannica” (AD 23). Dioscorides, a Greek physician and pharmacologist who wrote the renowned “De Materia Medica,” suggested the different Docks as pot plants that would relieve itching and clear up affected skin.
Traditionally, Yellow dock root has most commonly been used as a blood purifier and general detoxifier, particularly for the liver. The herb (Latin name: Rumex Crispus) aids in detoxification in a number of ways. First of all, yellow dock root promotes the formation of bile, which aids in the digestion of foods, particularly fats.
Yellow dock root has a laxative effect, and this can help get rid of leftover waste in your digestive system. It also makes you urinate more frequently to help get rid of toxins. To avoid the problems associated with toxin buildup in the liver, gallbladder, and circulation, it is important to maintain an effective rate of waste removal.
Many diseases, including cancer, are caused by DNA being damaged by unstable oxygen molecules which result from various pollutants. Anti-oxidants protect against this damage by reacting with and neutralising the dangerous molecules. Yellow dock root has been proven to be an anti-oxidant. The Department of Chemistry at Jamia Hamdard in India conducted a study that revealed yellow dock root has strong antioxidant activity. This activity helps to scavenge free radicals and prevent oxidative damage, which can affect liver tissue, among other tissues.
In some countries, there is a huge interest in the research of traditional medicine since modern drugs are expensive and can have serious side effects. Yellow dock root has been shown to be a herbal powerhouse by Ethiopia’s Aklilu Lemma Institute of Pathobiology. They carried out a study to gauge the “healing potentials” or fidelity level of therapeutic herbs. One of the top-scoring plants was yellow dock root. We agree, and it is one of our most-recommended detoxing herbs.
