Dandelion roots are high in a starchy substance called inulin. Inulin is not digested by humans, but when eaten it passes to the colon where it provides nutrients for healthy gut flora. Many pro-biotic formulas now boast that they also contain pre-biotics like inulin.
With dandelion roots you can avoid pills and let your food be your medicine. Liver Health Herbalists have long relied on the simple dandelion root for improved liver health. Because our livers are involved in many physiological functions, this means that dandelion can be used for a lot of different ailments.
Here are some examples: To support healthy hormone levels (poor liver health is associated with imbalanced hormones).
To address skin inflammation (poor metabolic pathways can lead to inflammatory conditions in the body that can show up as acne, eczema, etc).
To improve digestion (a healthy liver produces bile which is stored and then released from the gallbladder to digest fats).
Numerous studies have shown that dandelion improves liver health in animals.
Cancer Folk herbalists have long used dandelion root to support the health of people who have cancer. Scientists are now looking into this and there are a handful of in vitro studies showing promising results.
