Rhubarb: Chinese herbalists have relied on rhubarb rhizomes and roots for thousands of years. They contain powerful anthraquinones and tannins that act as mild stimulant laxatives and astringents, respectively.

Rhubarb also acts as a mild stimulant for the production of oestrogen,

and is of value for the menopause and oestrogen deficiency. It also

contains some vital phyto-nutrients, such as dietary fibre,

poly-phenolic antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

Further, its petioles contain no saturated fats or cholesterol.

Rhubarb stalks are rich in several B-complex vitamins (such as folates, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine), thiamin, and pantothenic acid and minerals (such as iron, copper, calcium, potassium, and phosphorus).

As with other greens like kale, spinach, etc, rhubarb stalks also provide good amounts of vitamin K, which has a role in bone health

by promoting osteotrophic (bone formation and strengthening) activity.

Turkey Rhubarb technically referred to as Rheum palmatum is widely used as part of colon cleansing programmes, because it contains the following active ingredients: anthraquinones, emodin, tannins, flavanoids including rutin and several polyphenols. Rhubarb is a strong herbal laxative, astringent bitter, gastric stimulant, anti-inflamatory, stomach tonic and antiseptic. It is also used for disorders of the liver, gall bladder and stomach.

Rhubarb is particularly effective at interacting with the digestive system. It contains anthraquinones, including rhein and emodin and their glycosides (e.g. glucorhein), which impart cathartic and laxative properties. It is therefore very useful as a cathartic in case of constipation. It is a naturally strong herbal laxative, astringent- bitter, gastric stimulant, anti-inflammatory, stomachic, tonic and anti-septic. Also used for disorders of the liver, gallbladder and stomach.
