ok guys!!! ive done some research on this burdock root and it seems to be quite promising for controlling acne. It kind of helps the liver into doin its job, and it keeps the whole sytem clean. Please can some of the users on this forum, post in there results. Is it worth taking? Im thinking of buying some of those 'acne releif' tablets from my local boots... Also those of u that are taking this, can you stil take vitamin supplements???

Thanks people!

I'm drinking it in coffee form. I've not noticed any huge differences.
But please tell us if it helps you.
How effective it is would probably depend on each individual's liver.

Hey G24,Maybe ur takin too much Br in a day, reduce the dosage and see if it has a difference. I was thinking of taking burdock root but want to no how the best way of takin it is. why dont u try and drink plenty of water about 30min after takin BR. So u eliminate toxins via the bladder instead of ur skin.??? just a suggestion. p.s If anybody else on the forum also experienced bad acne after takin BR please post in.

Reducing the dosage may help... Anyways, I'm still experiencing a VERY bad breakout, and new pimples are forming all the time. This is NOT fun. Is it a result of the detox?

The bottle says:

SOLARAY
Dietary Supplement
BURDOCK
100 vegatarian capsules

Ingredients: Burdock and Cellulose (capsule)

Dosage: 2-3 caps 2 or 3 times daily. Each capsule 1080mg burdock.

My diet is pretty normal I guess. I eat a lot of fruits (mainly apple), some salad end some bread. I had chickenbreast and rice for dinner yesterday. Some other meat and potatoes in sauce today. I eat a little sweets, but not much. I drink alot of water.

this is quite confusing to be ohnest... y dont u lay off the BR for a few days then go back on it. maybe u your becomin tolerant to it. Think about canabis....its a HERB rite? but the more people smoke it, the more they become tolerant @hence' it takes them alot of spliffs to get high

i used them for about 3months. They were quite expensive (student here). No initial breakout. I kid you not, no zits for a week, but they slowly came back.

i dunno, its hard to tell with these things.

i also took milk thistle, that seems to do the same thing, and is cheaper.

one thing I have heard, though I have done no research, is that you must rotate the herbs for them to keep their effectiveness...so for example you might want to buy another herb or two, such as chinese bitters or milk thistle since they also cleanse the liver, and switch every two weeks. I am taking milk thistle at the moment and I like it. I also really like the Solary brand, very trustable!

Where do you live where burdock is more expensive? It's like half the cost of milkthistle(A quarter if you get the actual chopped root for tea, which you can just put in those mesh balls).

I don't know where the idea that herbs are only effective if you rotate but I haven't been able to find out a good explanation why. Not just, becuase yur body gets used to it but how it does exactly.

I know they(MD's) give milk thistle to cirrosis and hep. patients for long periods of time and if caught early int he case of cirrosis can reverse or stagnant the disease. Garlics a herb and never ceases to be effective. There are other examples. The interent is a godsend and a bane for information.

This is my second day off the Burdock, and my mild headache has really improved, so it's no doubt that the Burdock gave me headache... neutral.gif

It's very likely burdock gave you a headache because it was detoxifying your liver and your blood. This means it was working. It's very common to get a headache while cleansing.
My regimen:

Eat regularly: a wide variety of vegetables, eggs, meat/fish, cheese, yogurt, butter, fruit, nuts/seeds.

Occasionally eat: beans, squash, potatoes.

Don't eat: sugar, grains, most processed food.
