Dandelion Uses & Scientific Evidence For
In 1959, German scientists found the root of Dandelion had significant cleansing action on the liver and worked well to stimulate bile production. Research in the journal Planta Medica, in 1974, examined and found Dandelion leaves to be an excellent diuretic because it can stabilize the amount of potassium your body needs.

Today, Dandelion leaves are commonly recommended as a food supplement for pregnant and postmenopausal women because of the numerous nutrients they contain. This plant produces a mild diuretic effect and reduces serum cholesterol levels. Dandelion root is used to improve appetite, minor digestive problems, and works as a milk laxative. Some modern naturopathic physicians believe that it can help detoxify the liver and gallbladder. Clinical trials have shown Dandelion to be effective in treating pneumonia, bronchitis and upper respiratory infections. It also helps with kidney function, pancreas, spleen, stomach, tinnitus, tonsillitis, osteoporosis, abscesses, anemia, boils, breast tumors, and cirrhosis of the liver, fluid retention, hepatitis, jaundice, rheumatism and warts. Dandelion may aid in prevention of age spots and works well in treating warts, fungus infections, and external and internal malignant growths. It is also used for treat skin problems such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, and arthritis conditions. This plant is used for ulcerations of the urinary passages, obstructions of the liver, gallbladder, and spleen. The roasted Dandelion root can even be used as a coffee substitute.

The German Commission E suggests the Dandelion Leaf for loss of appetite and dyspepsia, such as feeling of fullness and flatulence. This info was published in August of 92.

Dandelion Safety & Interaction Information
Dandelion is generally regarded as safe; however, the leaf and root should be used with caution by persons with gallstones. If there is an obstruction of the bile ducts, then Dandelion should be avoided altogether. In cases of stomach ulcer or gastritis, Dandelion should be used with caution, as it may cause overproduction of stomach acid. For fluid or water retention it is best to consult with your physician or nutritionist before taking Dandelion leaves or Dandelion root as a treatment.
