This is a study of women aged 18-65, to determine the physiological effects of consuming burdock root in supplement form. Burdock has long been used by herbalists for its diuretic and blood sugar lowering properties.
This study will allow us to determine the effect of burdock consumption on basic laboratory tests such as the complete metabolic panel (CMP) as well as the effect on blood pressure over time. Participants will self-monitor their blood pressures and undergo lab testing. They will also complete symptom inventories to determine subjective factors that change with burdock consumption, such as menstrual water retention. Subjects will undergo electronic body composition testing before and after the intervention.
