MEDIAKEPRI.CO.ID, Jakarta – Gobo, the root of the burdock plant (Arctium lappa) when consumed properly has a number of health benefits, one of which is preventing cancer.

Plants such as cassava are commonly found in North Asia, Europe and the United States and have actually been used in Chinese medicine and herbal medicine in western countries.

Reported by Boldsky, the roots of this plant contain essential oils and compounds, namely tannins, sterols, quercetin, phenolic acids, and luteolin. These compounds are often associated with many health benefits.

Traditionally, the root of this plant is also used as a diuretic and aids digestion. However, researchers have found other health benefits in gobos. Here are five benefits of gobo root.

Still reported by Boldsky, the benefits of this plant root are able to prevent cancer because of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

A 2016 study showed that the benefits of gobo root slowed the growth of breast cancer tumors.

3. Purifies the blood

In traditional medicine, this root has been used for blood purification. A 2011 study found that gobo root can help remove toxins from the bloodstream, thereby detoxifying the blood and improving blood circulation.

4. Lowering inflammation
