Healing in Nature

Dandelion Gives

Healthy Liver... From filtering toxins to metabolizing drugs, the liver is essential to many aspects of health. Dandelion has been shown to improve liver function by removing toxins and reestablishing hydration and electrolyte balance. It also increases the release of bile. One study by the Department of Food and Nutrition at Chonnam National University in the Republic of Korea showed that dandelion root extract prevented damage to the liver caused by alcohol toxicity in both liver cells and mice. These protective effects are likely due to the number of antioxidants found in Dandelion root as well as its ability to prevent damage caused by free radicals.

Anti- Microbial... In addition to its many other health benefits, dandelion root also possesses antimicrobial properties that can help stop the growth of bad bacteria. A study in Ireland published in Phytotherapy Research showed that dandelion root was especially effective against certain strains of bacteria that are responsible for staph infections and foodborne illness. Although more research is needed, Dandelion Root may be a useful natural method for fighting off bacterial infections.

Gallbladder... Dandelion increases bile production and reduces inflammation to help with gallbladder problems and blockages. Dandelion Root also discourages excessive water retention. You could also consider using Dandelion Leaf (Taraxacum officinale) for Gallbladder health as it helps promote bile excretion from the liver so the body can more efficiently metabolise fat. Dandelion Leaf is also effective at stimulating a sluggish gallbladder, which is responsible for storing and excreting bile as the body needs it. As such, dandelion leaf is effective at promoting blood purity and lessening the burden on the liver.

Inflammation... Dandelion contains essential fatty acids, antioxidants, polyphenols and phytonutrients that all reduce inflammation throughout the body. This can relieve pain and swelling. Inflammation is one of your body’s natural responses to injury or illness. Over time, excessive inflammation can lead to permanent damage to your body’s tissues and DNA. Some test-tube studies have revealed significantly reduced inflammation markers in cells treated with dandelion compounds. A study in mice with artificially induced inflammatory lung disease showed a significant reduction of lung inflammation in those animals that received dandelion

Healthy Heart, Healthy Cholesterol... High cholesterol is one of the major contributors to coronary heart disease. A waxy substance can build up in the blood vessels, causing arteries to become hardened and narrow and making it harder for blood to flow through. Changing your diet is one of the easiest ways to prevent high cholesterol. Along with limiting your intake of ultra-processed foods, including more whole foods like fruits and vegetables can help lower cholesterol.

Blood Sugar Health... Dandelion root has also been shown to reduce cholesterol levels. In one study, rabbits were fed a high-cholesterol diet and supplemented with dandelion root. Dandelion led to a reduction in total cholesterol, triglycerides and bad LDL cholesterol as well as an increase in beneficial HDL cholesterol. When combined with regular physical activity and a healthy diet, including a serving of dandelion root in your day could help keep your heart healthy. Chicoric and chlorogenic acid are two bioactive compounds in dandelion. They’re found in all parts of the plant and may help reduce blood sugar. Test-tube and animal studies show that these compounds can improve insulin secretion from the pancreas while simultaneously improving the absorption of glucose (sugar) in muscle tissue.This process leads to improved insulin sensitivity and reduced blood sugar levels. In some animal studies, chicoric and chlorogenic acid limited the digestion of starchy carbohydrate foods, which may also contribute to dandelion’s potential ability to reduce blood sugar. While these early study results are encouraging, more research is needed to determine if dandelion work the same way in humans.

Foraging

If you collect Dandelions wild, try to choose ones you know have not been subjected to pesticides, fertilisers, and other chemicals. The ones in your lawn are not usually the best. Pick them instead from a mountain meadow or abandoned lot.

Seeds can be bought or you can gather them from the familiar puff balls you see each summer. Seeds grow readily in your garden, planter boxes, or pots. 

Younger plants tend to be less bitter as well as more tender. The greens from these plants can be incorporated into a delicious dandelion leaves salad or sautéed for a savoury side dish. 

You can also use the roots by digging a bit deeper and making sure to pull out all of the stems it may be attached to. Wash the roots well to make sure all dirt is removed and use it to make a tasty tea or soothing coffee substitute.

Important info before Purchasing

Allergy to Dandelion: Some people may experience an allergic reaction to dandelion and related plants. If you are allergic to chamomile, chrysanthemums, marigold, yarrow and the ragweed plant family, dandelion tea may not be right for you. Allergy symptoms seem to occur more often, however, when sensitive people simply touch the weed directly. Contact can cause itching and rash, inflamed eyes, a runny nose or difficulty breathing. If you have any of these side effects after drinking dandelion tea, discontinue use and consult a doctor.

Interaction with Medications: Dandelion has the potential to affect your medications, although this may occur primarily with the leaf of the plant and not the root. For example, dandelion can make medications leave your body more quickly. People on blood-thinning medications may be at risk for bleeding if they take dandelion, and diabetics may find that the herb lowers their blood sugar. Dandelion may also worsen the side effects of the drug lithium, a treatment for bipolar disorder. Given dandelion’s numerous potential drug interactions, it's wise to talk to your doctor about drinking dandelion root tea.
