This herb has a long history of use and is considered a great survival food because of its protein, vitamin and mineral content.

The dandelion is a great herb for building the blood and helping with anemia. It promotes circulation, strengthens the arteries, restores gastric juices after severe vomiting, and reduces cholesterol levels. Dandelion is also used as a diuretic and for diabetes. It has the ability to cleanse obstructions and stimulate the liver to detoxify poisons.

Modern research has proven the efficacy of dandelion. Studies have shown that the rhizomes and roots increase the flow of bile, which is beneficial for liver disorders, hepatitis, bile duct inflammation, gallstones, jaundice, and the bile duct. Dandelion works to increase bile production in the liver, which in turn increases the flow to the gallbladder, as well as contracting and releasing stored bile in the gallbladder.

Dandelion is often prescribed to increase bile flow and prevent gallstones. It can help with arthritis, as it stimulates the uric acid elimination from the body. It helps nourish and cleanse the blood, liver and spleen. It is also useful for treating anemia, because it contains many nutrients. Dandelion is used to heal connective tissue and stop degeneration. Dandelion greens contain diuretic effects much greater than other herbal diuretics, thus potential for marked weight loss due to water loss. Dandelion is thought to have cancer- and infection-fighting potential.

    Hello everyone 🙂 I`ve some question. Last year I`ve made syrup of dandelion but during the storage some cloudy sediment appers. Is it normal? Before bottling syrup was filtered.
