Turkey Rhubarb Root (Rheum palmatum)

Turkey Rhubarb root is well known for promoting the essential bowel peristalsis/movement in order to effectively remove stool/fecal matter, detoxify the bowel, cleanse the liver, and reducing abnormal cell division.

(Peristalsis is the involuntary contraction and relaxation of longitudinal and circular muscles throughout the digestive tract, allowing for the propulsion of contents beginning in the pharynx and ending in the anus.)

It is used primarily as an herbal medicine and is best known for the very positive cleansing and balancing effect it has upon the digestive system. Turkey Rhubarb Root helps to normalize bowel movements and is considered a safe and effective support for the bowels and irregularity. It benefits the bowels without causing cramping or discomfort.

It comes from Asia where it has long been used as a natural support for constipation. It works best when the body is adequately hydrated. In a study conducted in 2014, it was found that Turkey Rhubarb contains tannins that help in regulating the water absorption of the digestive tract, aiding the prevention of diarrhea. If used long-term, we suggest eating a banana regularly to ensure adequate potassium levels.
