Background and Use:
This gentle and effective herb is valued in many cultures. Classified as a "bitter"; a group of herbs that have been used traditionally to improve appetite and support normal digestion.
In the folk medicine of many countries, Dandelion root is regarded as a "liver tonic", a substance believed to support the liver in an unspecified way. Preliminary studies do suggest that Dandelion root stimulates the liver to increase bile flow. Once bile is released by the liver, its two main functions are to carry away waste and to break down fats during digestion. It remains to be proven what physiological function this has in the body.
