Originally brought to Japan from China, Burdock root (known as Gobo in Japan) has since been integrated into different products which include Gobo Tea. Made from finely chopped burdock, dried and roasted, it has a gentle, earthy taste with a distinct sweetness and easy-to-drink aroma. In recent years, its health benefits have attracted attention and increasingly gaining popularity. Containing no caffeine and minimal calories, it is great for drinking anytime.
Containing multiple power antioxidants such as luteolin, they can protect cells in the body from damage due to free radicals and reduce inflammation.
Reducing Blood Pressure
Gobo Tea contains potassium, which may help to lower blood pressure and open blood vessels to improve blood flow.
The saponins in burdock tea are said to be able to activate the natural cells which control the body immunity. It also warms the body and is ideal as a beverage for some relief from colds.
Clearing toxins from the blood
The antioxidant and wound-healing effects of the saponins contained in burdock tea are said to have the effect of cleaning the blood vessels and making the blood smooth. As a result, it can be expected to have a preventive effect on diseases related to blood vessels such as arteriosclerosis, stroke, and myocardial infarction.
Improvement in intestinal activity
Gobo Tea contains Inulin, a type of water soluble dietary fiber. It helps in suppressing sugar and water absorption. It is a beneficial source of nutrients for beneficial bacteria in the intestine which helps in improving the intestinal health and activity.
