DANDELION ROOT POWDER
Dandelion root stimulates the release of bile from the liver into the gallbladder. ThIs herb is used to support treatment of a variety of liver disorders, especially the incomplete digestion of fats. The release of bile is laxative, and accelerates the breakdown of various steroid hormones, causing an indirect, favorable effect on skin conditions.
Dandelion root, like dandelion leaf, also is one of the best herbal diuretics. It stimulates urination but also replaces the potassium lost to the increased volume of urine.
The common dandelion is an exceptionally nutritious food. Its leaves and root contain substantial levels of vitamins A, C, D, and B complex as well as iron, magnesium, zinc, potassium, manganese, copper, choline, calcium, boron, and silicon.
