Quick Overview

While a large percentage of the population regards dandelion as nothing more than a pesky weed, it has been adamantly used since the 17th century to promote good health and vigor.

Product Description

While a large percentage of the population regards dandelion as nothing more than a pesky weed, it has been adamantly used since the 17th century to promote good health and vigor. Naturally enriched with high concentrations of vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids, Dandelion has been used for generations to promote normal digestion, regularity and circulation. And while its completely safe to ingest, avoid harvesting those from your yard, as they probably contain pesticides. NOW Dandelion Root contains 100% safe, healthy extracts.

Digestive effects: Stimulates the initial phase of digestion, particularly the secretion of salivary and gastric juices. Also stimulates the release of bile by the liver and gallbladder.

Liver effects: Enhances bile flow, thus improving conditions such as liver congestion, bile duct inflammation, hepatitis, gallstones, and jaundice. Dandelion increases bile flow by 1) affecting the liver directly to cause an increase in bile production and flow to the gallbladder, and 2) exerting a direct effect on the gallbladder by causing a contraction and release of stored bile. Dandelion's hepatic tonic effect may be attributable to the high choline content. The ability of the plant to improve liver function most plausibly explains many of dandelion's historical uses.

Diuretic and Weight Loss: Dandelion leaves have confirmed diuretic activity. One study in mice showed that dandelion exerted a diuretic activity comparable to furosemide (a loop diuretic). Dandelion, however, retains potassium through diuresis, whereas furosemide does not. Therefore the potential side effects of furosemide are avoided. Mice in the study exhibited a 30% loss of body weight in a 30-day period. Much of the weight loss is attributable to the diuretic effects.
