Greater burdock was used during the Middle Ages as a vegetable, but now it is rarely used. Plants are cultivated for their slender roots, but immature flower stalks may also be harvested in late spring, before flowers appear. The taste resembles that of artichoke, to which the burdock is related. Burdock is a diuretic, diaphoretic, and a blood purifying agent. Various parts are used to prevent baldness and to treat rheumatoid arthritis, skin infections, acne, boils, bites, eczema, herpes, impetigo, rashes, ringworm, sore throat, sciatica, poison ivy and poison oak, as a tonic, diuretic and mild laxative, to stimulate bile production and to induce sweating. Seeds contain arctigenin which may help memory. Arctiin and its aglucone, arctigenin has shown potent in vitro antiviral activities against influenza A virus. Burdock is one ingredient in Essiac. The seeds have shown some anticancer activity in vitro.
