Chicory Root

Chicory Root (Cichorium intybus)

Chicory Root is a systemic cleanser and liver support that has been recorded for its health benefits since Ancient Roman and Egyptian times.

This valued herb is high in antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and plant polyphenols that significantly reduce oxidative stress and prevent cell damage – particularly in the liver. This assists in detoxification and enhancing the bodies defence systems.

Studies verify that it also regulates blood sugar levels, can delay or prevent the onset of diabetes, and helps manage osteoarthritis.

Additionally, it contains a prebiotic fibre which aids gut health, relieves constipation and supports optimal gut motility.
