Cultivated from the Nile river region for thousands of years, Chicory Root has a long and well documented history of assisting with liver problems. In fact, documentation exists that ancient Romans used this herb to help cleanse the blood. Similarly, ancient Egyptians were known to consume Chicory Root in large amounts to aid in purifying the liver and the blood. Especially during periods of scarcity for traditional coffee beans, roasted Chicory Root has served as a natural, caffeine-free alternative.
