Dandelion root’s medicinal history dates back over 2,500 years to ancient China as a digestive and liver tonic.
This versatile herb is rich in nutrients and high in antioxidants which significantly reduces oxidative stress and prevents inflammatory cell damage particularly in the liver, thereby assisting in detoxification and enhancing the bodies defence systems.
Studies verify that dandelion root also possesses antimicrobial properties that can retard the growth of disease-causing bacteria. This powerful combination of factors may be useful in the prevention and treatment of liver disease and cancer, reduce cholesterol levels and heart disease, as well as systemic detoxification and weight management.
