Dipsacus are native to Africa, Asia, and Europe.
1. Treats osteoporosis and osteopenia: Teasel is used in Traditional Chinese Medicine as a liver and kidney toner. Grant states, âTeasel Root is âclassified as a Yang tonic with an affinity for assisting with structural repair especially of connective tissue and bone.ââ It increases circulation and aids in building strong tendons and bones. Teasel Root Extract helps damaged bone tissue grow, stimulating new bone growth. It also helps alleviate muscle pain.

2. A natural diuretic: Teasel Root Extract is an excellent diuretic, making it great for ridding the body of excess water weight, as it encourages the flow of urine. This dynamic root also stimulates sweating, which is another way to rid the body of toxins (sweating acts as a diuretic). It rids the body of unneeded salt and water, which can also help with tissue swelling (inflammation).
1. Helps rid the body of chronic Lyme disease: What is Lyme disease? Lyme disease is caused by a bacteria (Borrelia burgdorferi), transmitted to humans by infected black legged ticks. Symptoms vary, but can include fever, fatigue, headaches, and a skin rash. A couple weeks of antibiotics can help clear Lyme disease from the body. Chronic Lyme disease, however, is something many people suffer from. Chronic Lyme disease happens when antibiotics fail to heal the body, and fatigue, headaches and other symptoms linger, often longer than six months. Teasel Root is not an antibiotic, but a weed that is capable of changing the bodyâs environment, so the body can kill off Lyme bacteria. The bodyâs muscles and cells are stimulated and it helps dump Lyme bacteria into the bloodstream, and then the body can detox it.
4. Helps treat Candida overgrowth: Although Candida is present in everyoneâs bodies, it is a fungus, and when it gets out of control, it can result in various maladies such as yeast infections, depression, chronic fatigue, or infection of our gut flora. Teasel Root Extract works with natural antibiotics, and aids in purging excess Candida into our bloodstream so that it can die-off. Inulin is part of the Teasel Root, and helps probiotic growth in the colon. Probiotics, which are live bacteria and yeasts, are âgoodâ or âhelpfulâ bacteria. Itâs the stuff that keeps our guts healthy. âProâ means for, and âbioâ in this definition means life; therefore, probiotics are âfor life.â Taking teasel root if you have candida overgrowth can force candida from tissues, and the exposure allows probiotics to attack and conquer the offending enemies.
2. Jaundice: Jaundice is a common liver problem. The appearance of light or a dark-yellow coloring of the skin and eyes is known as jaundice. Jaundice is not a disease, but can be associated with other problems, such as acute inflammation of the liver, alcoholism, liver infection or cancer, and bile duct inflammation. Elevated bilirubin, according to the Mayo Clinic, is âan orange-yellow substance made during the normal breakdown of red blood cells. Bilirubin passes through the liver and is eventually excreted out of the body, and causes the yellowing of skin and/or eyes.â The diuretic properties of Teasel Root supports the liver to clear the body of toxins.
