Dandelion Root

Taraxicum officinalis radix

Dandelion (root) is a bitter tonic that stimulates hydrochloric acid, bile, liver, pancreatic and small intestine secretions. It is indicated for chronic constipation due to poor digestion, poor fat metabolism and sluggish liver function. It is a prebiotic and therefore stimulates the growth of healthy bowel flora. It is used to cleanse the blood and liver and it promotes the flow of bile. It is rich in vitamins and minerals and may help those with anemia. Dandelion is native to Greece, although today it thrives just about everywhere.
