What is Yellow Dock?

The root of the yellow dock (Rumex crispus) plant has long been linked to traditional wellness practices in North America. Commonly considered a weed, it is valued by those in the herbalism field as a general wellness tonic. Native American tribes used the herb in folk healing practices for joint discomfort, swelling, kidney issues, wound dressing and fever. The Navajo tribe, in particular, considered the herb an important component of many health practices and rituals, and believed it promoted both physical and spiritual wellness.**

The plant’s root is commonly associated with a mild and gentle laxative effect that aids in gastrointestinal health and comfort. The herb may further promote digestive wellness by supporting the gallbladder’s healthy production of bile. Studies have indicated that this botanical’s laxative and digestion-supportive effects may be attributed to active compounds called anthraquinone glycosides.**

Research has also shown that yellow dock supplies antioxidants that help to neutralize harmful oxidative stress within the body. The antioxidants found in this traditional herb have been specifically tied to a protective effect on the liver, and may help to cleanse the bloodstream.**

Additionally, the tannins present in the plant’s leaves have an astringent quality; the herb is sometimes applied topically to support skin wellness. The root, when taken internally, may also help with the scaling and flaking that is associated with some inflammatory skin issues. This herb’s soothing properties are also used to assist with irritation of the sinuses, sore throat and upper respiratory tract congestion and inflammation.**
