Turkey Rhubarb Root Organic
Turkey Rhubarb: Rheum palmatum (L.)
Why Turkey Rhubarb? Not to be confused with garden rhubarb (Rheum rhaponticum L.), turkey rhubarb is a valuable helpmate to the stomach. It helps naturally stimulate the body’s gastric juices, promotes appetite, and supports a normal functioning liver.
