Traditional Uses*: Turkey Rhubarb is also known as Chinese rhubarb or Da Huang in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), where it is a commonly used herb for its gentle laxative effects and for eliminating toxins. It contains anthroquinones, which can be purgative to the system, and also tannins and bitter properties which are mildly astringent. The combination lends itself to help balance the digestive system. Rhubarb root is rich in many vitamins, minerals and micronutrients. In North America, it is used as an ingredient in the traditional Essiac cancer treatment formula. Not many studies have been done to prove or disprove its usefulness for this purpose.
NOT to be used during pregnancy, lactation, or with gut obstructions.
