Although considered a noxious weed, dandelion is actually a member of the sunflower family. Its name is derived from the French "dents de lion", meaning "Teeth of the lion." Herbalists consider this plant one of the most nutrient-rich in the plant kingdom. The whole plant is edible - the flowers, the leaves and the roots.
The bitter herb is a source of potassium, calcium, iron, manganese, magnesium, silicon, phosphorus and sodium. The leaves are a richer source of vitamin A than carrots and contain some vitamins B, C and D.
In Germany, Dandelion is frequently used to help support liver and gallbladder support and to help maintain biliary, digestive, and gastrointestinal health. The root contains sesquiterpene lactones beneficial to the digestion process and with a mild purgative or laxative effect.
