Dandelion (taraxacum officinale) has historically been an herb considered to be a rich source of beta-carotene and potassium. According to folk medicine, dandelion was used for disturbances in bile flow, inflammatory conditions of the urinary tract, and dyspepsia. It was also used for liver and gallbladder disorders, hemorrhoids, gout, rheumatic disorders, eczema, and other skin conditions. The herb has a diuretic effect and is used for bladder and kidney complaints.
-Unlike many conventional diuretics, which cause a loss of potassium, dandelion is rich in potassium. Using the herb as a diuretic results in a net gain of this vital mineral. Because of its diuretic effect, dandelion helps to counteract urine retention in bladder infections.
-The bitter principles in dandelion increase bile production and bile flow in the liver. This makes it useful for people with sluggish liver function due to alcohol abuse or poor diet. It is restorative to the liver and helps reduce the risk of developing gallstones. But should you already have gallstones, dandelion should be avoided, as it will increase bile flow and increase pressure against the stones.
