Rumex crispus (Yellow dock)

Yellow dock, also commonly named curled dock, has a long history of herbal use. It is a gentler laxative than rhubarb but can also relieve diarrhea according to the dosage due to its astringent constituents. Due to its high level of iron, the root is used for treating anemia, often paired with stinging nettle (Urtica dioica).
