Arctium lappaA wonderful alterative herb, or metabolic tonic, helping to better assimilate and utilize nutrients, and proper removal of wastes. Increases absorption of fats and oil in small intestine by increasing bile production. The nutritive oils heal deficiencies of the liver, gallbladder, kidneys, skin, and endocrine systems. Useful for skin conditions when there is sebaceous gland and oil imbalances. Very nutritive (and tasty!) and is often used as a food.
