DandelionScientific Name: Taraxacum officinale
Dandelion InformationThe main benefits of this herb are exerted upon the functions of the liver. Dandelion has the capacity to clear obstructions and stimulate and aid the liver to eliminate toxins from the blood. In this way, dandelion root is particularly used as a blood purifying herb.
Dandelion root is also useful for clearing obstructions of the spleen, pancreas, gall bladder, bladder, and kidneys. It is of tremendous benefit to the stomach and intestines. Up to forty percent of the mature root is inulin, a mixture of complex carbohydrates known as fructo-oligo-saccharides (FOS). Intake of FOS significantly increases beneficial bifidobacteria within the gastrointestinal tract and eliminates pathogens. FOS also stimulates the immune system, increases mineral absorption and suppresses abnormal cell growth. The high levels of FOS in dandelion root and its water extract also help to keep blood sugar levels constant and reduce hyperglycemia.
