10. Burdock Root

Doctors will tell you that one of the best ways to stop pain is to consume more foods and supplements that have essential fatty acids. Burdock root is one of those! This herb has sterols, tannins, and essential fatty acids, which are all powerful anti-inflammatory compounds. Burdock has been used for more than 2,000 years for the treatment of arthritis, gout, rheumatism, and other conditions stimulated by inflammation. Burdock root is most often consumed as tea.

 

11. Licorice Root

Licorice root is perhaps one of the more popular herbal remedies for pain. Rich in glycyrrhizin, this compound is known to block inflammation, which can relieve pain. Licorice root also helps to prevent the side effects of the stress hormone cortisol, which are fatigue and anxiety. Licorice root acts as a natural corticosteroid in the body, which prevents inflammation. It also reduces free radicals that surround the inflamed area and prevents the production of enzymes that encourage further inflammation. Licorice is most often consumed as a tea, but it can also be consumed as a supplement after speaking to your doctor. Those with high blood pressure should avoid this herbal supplement.
