Dandelions are a familiar sight during the spring and summer months in most temperate climates around the world. Most people see it as just a weed to be eliminated but for centuries herbalists and natural medicine practitioners have valued it for its nutritive and medicinal properties.
EVIDENCE OF BENEFIT - Dandelion leaves are a powerful diuretic. The roots act as a blood purifier that helps both the kidneys and the liver to remove toxins and poisons from the blood. The roots have been used for centuries for jaundice. Dandelion also acts as a mild laxative and improves appetite and digestion. It is useful for eczema-like skin problems, boils, and abscesses, and is believed to help stop age spots.
Dandelion is consumed today in salads and other food preparations. It is an excellent source of Vitamins A, the B complex, C and D as well the minerals potassium, iron, zinc, and calcium. Dandelion supplies beneficial carotenoids, fatty acids, flavonoids, and phytosterols. Studies have reported dandelion may help improve the function of both the liver and the gallbladder.
