The Story

Yellow Dock: Rumex crispus (L.)


Why Yellow Dock Root? A wonderful weed, yellow dock is high in iron and a fantastic blood cleanser. Yellow dock is an effective tonic that can promote vibrancy and energy if you’re feeling run down. Yellow dock also promotes healthy elimination from the bowels.

Quality Assured: Our certified organic yellow dock root is sustainably sourced in the Croatia. This herb is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth and grown without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Our experts here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally evaluate every herb through taste, touch, and smell to assure that you are receiving the best botanicals suitable for clinical use.

How to Use

Wellness Support: Yellow dock is a valuable cleanser that can support both the circulatory system and digestive system—particularly the bowel. Since yellow dock is high in iron, it is an excellent herbal wellness support for those low in iron. 

Cautions and Contraindications: When using yellow dock, avoid excessive quantities of tannin tea or any herb teas that are high in tannin and alkaloids, such as peppermint Mentha ×piperita (L.) and coffee. Tannins and alkaloids interfere with the uptake and absorption of iron. Anyone with a history of kidney stones should use yellow dock cautiously. Yellow dock is stimulating to the bowels and, therefore, should not be taken where there is intestinal obstruction, during pregnancy, or while breast-feeding.
