  • Good for people who have issues with fluid retention
  • Helpful for hepatitis
  • Helpful for arthritis, osteoarthritis, and gout
  • Leaf has more of an effect on the kidneys while the root has more effect on the liver and gallbladder
  • Due to it’s cooling properties and action on the liver, it can be helpful in treating hot flashes

Cautions:Do not use for extended periods of time due to the possibility of over-stimulating the liver. Should not be taken in cases of biliary obstruction and/or biliary abscesses.
While it’s true that Dandelion grows in abundance, it is often heavily sprayed with harmful chemicals, so only use Dandelion purchased from a store or other source you KNOW is clean.  Like, absolutely positive.
