YellowDock Root Health Benefits
Drinking yellow dock tea can help support the healthy function of your liver, kidneys, gallbladder, bladder and intestines by enhancing your body’s efforts to purge itself of toxins that can overburden those organs. Yellow dock extracts toxins from your body’s tissues and acts as both a laxative to stimulate bowel movements and a diuretic to increase urine flow—both of which help remove waste from your body. Yellow dock helps your body produce more bile to break down the fatty foods you eat and improves the flow of bile and other digestive juices. It also helps reduce the amount of irritation and inflammation in your bowels. All these qualities make it a popular choice for people seeking to relieve digestive problems
Applying yellow dock to your skin can help treat rashes, sores, swelling, boils, cuts, scabs, hemorrhoids, fungal infections and dog and insect bites, as well as conditions, such as psoriasis, acne and eczema. Yellow dock may also help reduce gland swelling.
