Description

The Dandelion plant is often seen as a weed. However it has distinct medicinal properties and its action on the liver is particularly prized by herbalists.

How It Works

Dandelion is an excellent cleansing agent, being one of the most effective detoxifying herbs. It possesses a wide range of active constituents and is also rich in minerals and nutrients. The root of the plant stimulates liver function. This has a primary use in improving digestion as a result of an increase in digestive juices. In addition Dandelion leaves have diuretic and mild laxative properties.

Additional suggestion:

Those with liver complaints, gallstones or an obstructed bile duct should first consult a Doctor. Do not take alongside diuretics.
