Medicinal Uses – Internally, Yellow dock is considered one of the best overall blood purifiers. It is often recommended for anemia resulting from an iron deficiency. Yellow dock extract's rich iron content helps to enrich blood quality, and provide important vitamins and minerals, more than any other plant. It is also high in bio-flavonoids, which help to strengthen capillaries, and because it improves absorption of nutrients it is an effective herb in the treatment of acne and dermatitis conditions. Yellow Dock mobilizes congested blood and yanks toxins from the body's tissues. It is used to cleanse the system of toxic wastes and to help relieve virtually all disorders associated with impurities in the blood. Normally, Yellow Dock is blended with other cleansing herbs, like Burdock and Goldenseal to eliminate toxins and foreign substances that can overburden the liver; the herb is quite useful for treating a wide range of ailments. By significantly reducing the toxic content in the body it becomes easier to heal acne, boils, eczema, psoriasis, hives, dermatitis, as well as fungal infections and blood disorders. Yellow Dock tincture used to aid digestion and its laxative effects promotes colon health, easing constipation, clearing bodily wastes and improving skin eruptions caused by the condition. Yellow Dock extract's rich iron content helps to enrich blood quality, more than any other plant, as well as varying amounts of vitamins and minerals.
