Dandelion root (Taraxacum Officinale)

Digestive effects – Dandelion comes under the category of a bitter herb.

It is believed that the bitter principles stimulate the initial phase of digestion, this involves the release of salivary and gastric juices. It is also involved in stimulating the release of bile from the liver and gallbladder.

Liver effects – the effect of Dandelion on bile flow is two fold.

1.) Cholerectic effect – Affects liver directly by causing an increase in bile production and flow to the gallbladder.

2.) Chologogue effect – Exerts a direct effect on the gallbladder, causing contraction and the release of stored bile.

The high choline content of the root may be a major factor in dandelion’s ability to act as a tonic to the liver.


Diuretic and weight loss effects – Dandelion has a confirmed diuretic action.

Because dandelion replaces potassium lost through diuresis, it does not have some of the potential side effects of other diuretic drugs, such as hepatic coma and circulatory collapse.

Pre-menstrual syndrome – Dandelion’s gentle action on the liver, especially its lipotropic action can be put to good use in the clearance of Oestrogen and other hormones from the liver.

If dandelion can improve the liver’s ability to detoxify these hormones, symptoms may be improved.
