Arctium lappa, commonly known as burdock, is an important medicinal plant in China (TCM) and Europe which has been used for thousands of years (Van Wyk and Wink 2004).
Seeds of Arctium lappa were collected from the Neuenheimer Feld, Heidelberg, Germany in July 2011.
lappa contains lignans (arctigenin, arctiin), inulin (in the roots), organic, fatty and phenolic acids.
Study on effect of Arctium
Lappa on experimental diabetic mice.
In Brazilian traditional medicine Arctium
lappa has been reported to relieve gastrointestinal symptoms while in western herbal medicine it is usually considered more as an alterative and depurative than an anti-inflammatory.

Polyacetylenic phytoalexin (96) obtained from roots of Arctium
lappa (Takasugi et al.
There are also monographs for some of the herbs in my dispensary, Inula helenium, Arctium
