The four main herbs that make up ESSIAC® are Burdock Root, Sheep Sorrel, Slippery Elm Inner Bark, and Indian Rhubarb Root. The four herbs may help normalize body systems by cleansing the blood, purging toxic build up, promoting cell repair and aiding in effective assimilation and elimination. Sheep Sorrel acts on the endocrine system. Burdock Root apparently eliminates free radicals and purifies the blood. Slippery Elm is believed to dissolve mucus deposits in tissue, glands and nerve channels, soothing inflamed membranes and organs. Indian Rhubarb reportedly helps the body, especially the liver rid itself of wastes and toxins.

Indian Rhubarb Root- (Rheum officinale) - Used traditionally in small amounts, this herb acts as a gentle laxative and helps purge the liver of toxic buildup and waste. It helps neutralize acids due to indigestion. Its malic acid also carries oxygen to all parts of the body, aiding in healing and promoting a positive and balancing effect upon the whole digestive system.
Slippery Elm Inner Bark (Ulmus Vulva) - North American species of tree, the bark of which is traditionally used in folk medicine because it contains large amounts of tannins and mucilages.
