Rhubarb Root S.E.9percent

  • Rhubarb Root S.E.9percent

Product Name: Rhubarb Root S.E.9percent

Botanic Name: Rheum Rhaponticum


Rhubarb is a relative of buckwheat and has an earthy, sour flavor. Rhubarb thrives in cold climates and originated in Western China, Tibet, Mongolia, Siberia and neighboring areas. The traditional role was medicinal-the dried root was a popular remedy for a wide range of illnesses. Its primary function was to induce vomiting, although rhubarb is also a mild astringent. This medicinal role caused the price of the dried root to rise. Botanically speaking, rhubarb is considered a vegetable, but it's most often treated as a fruit - though it's rarely eaten raw. Just like fresh cranberries, rhubarb is almost unbearably tart on its own and needs the sweetness of sugar, honey, or fruit juice added to it to balance out the acidity. Rhubarb's nickname is the "pie plant" because that is the primary use for this vegetable.

Digestive Tract : Rhubarb root has been used as a gentle but effective laxative for over 2,000 years. When treating constipation, the sennosides in rhubarb root must transform into rheinanthrones by good bacteria in the colon. If good bacteria is not available (like after completing a course of antibiotics - which destroy good bacteria), it is not effective. Eating yogurt or taking an acidophilus supplement can replace good bacteria if taken after a course of antibiotics.When taken in smaller doses, rhubarb root can help in the treatment of diarrhea. It is also used to improve digestion, increase appetite, and has been used to treat intestinal parasites, including pinworms, ringworms, and threadworms.
