Promotes Healthy Digestive Functions and A Healthy Liver The leaves are used in salads and teas, while the roots are often used as a coffee substitute. Dandelion leaves are high in vitamins A, D, C, B vitamins, iron, silicon, zinc, manganese, magnesium, and potassium. The 1997 Commission E on Phytotherapy and Herbal Substances of the German Federal Institute for Drugs recommends Dandelion herb for 'Loss of appetite and dyspepsia, such as feeling of fullness and flatulence.' 'Dosage: 4 - 10 g of herb 3 times daily; 4 - 10 ml liquid extract 1:1 in 25 percent alcohol 3 times daily. Mode of Administration: Cut herb for infusions, as well as for liquid preparations for internal use. Duration of Administration: Unlimited.' The principal constituents responsible for dandelion’s action on the digestive system and liver are sesquiterpene lactones that are unique to dandelion. Studies show dandelion to be a powerful diuretic. Dandelion's bitter compounds increase the gallbladder's production of bile. This improves liver function and the body's metabolism of fats. This, in turn, has the effect of stimulating digestion and appetite. Dandelion also acts as a mild laxative. Grieve's classic 'A Modern Herbal': 'Diuretic, tonic and slightly aperient (laxative). It is a general stimulant to the system, but especially to the urinary organs, and is chiefly used in kidney and liver disorders. Dandelion is not only official but is used in many patent medicines. Not being poisonous, quite big doses of its preparations may be taken. Its beneficial action is best obtained when combined with other agents.' 'In the hepatic complaints of persons long resident in warm climates, Dandelion is said to afford very marked relief. A broth of Dandelion roots, sliced and stewed in boiling water with some leaves of Sorrel and the yolk of an egg, taken daily for some months, has been known to cure seemingly intractable cases of chronic liver congestion.' 'Dandelion is used as a bitter tonic in atonic dyspepsia, and as a mild laxative in habitual constipation. When the stomach is irritated and where active treatment would be injurious, the decoction or extract of Dandelion administered three or four times a day, will often prove a valuable remedy. It has a good effect in increasing the appetite and promoting digestion.' American Materia Medica, 1919 (Ellingwood): 'It is valuable in combination with other remedies of similar action, in chronic jaundice, in conditions attributable to auto-intoxication, in rheumatism and in blood disorders, as an alterative. It is especially an alterative for chronic eruptions, and unhealthy conditions of the skin.' 'It will stimulate the stomach, and is useful in chronic catarrhal gastritis with perversion of nutrition. In aphthous ulcerations of the mouth it is useful.' Eclectic Materia Medica, 1922 (Felter): 'If prepared from recent root, taraxacum preparations may be classed with the simple bitters, having in add
