About Dandelion Root...

The leaves and roots of the dandelion have been used for centuries to treat liver, gallbladder, kidney and joint problems. It is considered to be a blood purifier and is widely used to treat poor digestion, water retention and diseases of the liver, such as hepatitis.
Dandelion is a source of potassium, sodium, calcium, phosphorus and iron. The leaves are a richer source of vitamin A than carrots and also contain good levels of vitamins B, C and D. The root contains bitter glycosides, tannins, triterpenes, sterols, volatile oil, choline, asparagin and inulin.
Dandelion is also rich in lecithin, believed to protect the liver against cirrhosis.
Actions: Diuretic, hepatic, cholagogue, anti-rheumatic, laxative, tonic and bitter. It is a general stimulant to the system, especially to the urinary organs, and is primarily used in connection with kidney and liver disorders. Increases bile production in the gallbladder and bile flow from the liver.
This makes dandelion a great tonic for people with sluggish liver function due to alcohol abuse or poor diet. The increase in bile flow can help improve fat (including cholesterol) metabolism in the body and it also cleanses the blood.
