Burdock is used traditionally to reduce mucus buildup, support healthy gastrointestinal tract and stimulate immune response. Slippery Elm contains large amounts of tannins and mucilages which help to dissolve mucus deposits in tissue, glands and nerve channels. Sheep Sorrel is used in traditional folk herbalism to cool the body, create sweating and detoxification through the skin. As a diuretic, Sheep Sorrel is useful in maintaining a healthy kidney and urinary function. Lastly, Indian Rhubarb acts as a gentle laxative and helps purge the liver of toxic buildup and waste.

Burdock, powdered (root)
Sheep sorrel, powdered
