manganese, copper, magnesium, calcium, can be found in this herb.

an ability to remove toxins from the body, and many claim it has antibiotic and
antimicrobial properties as well.

and more effective. The root contains a number of vitamins such as B complex, C, A
and P. It has a lot of the trace minerals needed by the body such as sodium, copper,
iodine, iron, chlorine, calcium, manganese, potassium, magnesium, sulphur,
phosphorus and zinc.

tumor cells are eliminated. The rhubarb is a laxative that gently stimulates the organs
to purge the body of this matter.
