Chicory Root Organic
Chicory Root Organic, known scientifically as Chicorium intybus, is one of many organic herbs that are not only used therapeutically, but for nutrition as well. Both the leaves and dried and ground chicory root are used as medicinal herbs and in the kitchen as a spice, boiled up as a side dish and used both as a flavoring for coffee (New Orleans coffee with chicory was once world-famous) and as a coffee substitute.
When used as therapeutic herbs, cut Chicory Root Organic is dried and ground into a powder. Essentially a sedative, Chicorium intybus acts on the heart and circulatory system. Herbalists say that Chicory Root Organic is probiotic and promotes the growth of friendly microbes in the gastro-intestinal tract. There have also been claims that Chicorium intybus may be useful for those with constipation and diarrhea; however, there are few definitive scientific studies to confirm this.
Like other herbs and spices in bulk, Chicory Root Organic can be used to flavor foods during the cooking process and stimulate the appetite. Unlike some other natural herbs and spices, chicory is fine to eat in salads as well as a pot green like spinach. In addition, this organic bulk herb is “Generally Recognized as Safe” by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and is among the safest of bulk herbs for sale; Chicory Root Organic does not have any side effects or interactions with anything else.
