Description - Research and Analysis


Taraxacum officinale Weber (Compositae), commonly puffball, Lion's tooth, priest's crown. In French, it is Pissenlit or Dent-de-lion; in German, Lôwenzahn or Kuhblume.


While generally considered an annoying garden weed, dandelions are, in fact, cultivated for traditional health use. Leaves are collected before flowering, dried and crushed. Dandelion root products are composed of the roots and rhizomes, collected in the autumn, and sold in dried, broken or chopped pieces.


The name is derived from the French dent de lion, or lion's teeth, because the leaves are thought to resemble the teeth of lions. Whatever the leaves resemble, dandelion is a diuretic, which led Tudor writers to give it the name "piss-in-bed." Folklore has it that if dandelions are gathered on Midsummer's Eve, they will have the power to ward off evil spirits. Dandelion was used by ancient Greek physicians, and in the Middle Ages it was recommended by Avicenna, the famous Arab physician. A Russian variety of dandelion was cultivated during World War II because it contained a latex material that could be used to make rubber. The types of dandelions grown in the rest of Europe, and the United States, only contain inconsequential amounts of latex.

Traditional Support Uses

In the Middle Ages, formulations made from the leaves were used as diuretics and to help promote the flow of bile. Products made with the root were used to help support constipation and indigestion, and to help promote appetite. During the last century, regular use of dandelion was recommended as a way to help support kidney stones. Most recently, herbal product makers have promoted dandelion for "detoxifying the liver."

Commission E Recommendations

Dandelion herb can be used to help support abdominal bloating, loss of appetite, biliary dyskinesia, dyspepsia (upset stomach), flatulence, and as a diuretic.

Possible Effects

On a weight-for-weight basis, dandelion extracts produce just as much fluid loss as furosemide (a very potent diuretic used to help support heart and kidney failure). Extracts of the root have been shown to increase bile flow by a factor of almost 40 percent, at least in animals. Clinical effects, in controlled trials, have been poorly studied. Encouraging results using dandelion extract to help support non-specific digestive tract issues were reported in the early 1980s, but have not been repeated. The greatest medical potential for dandelion was not appreciated until quite recently; dandelions contain a phytoestrogen called coumesterol. The benefits of soy and dandelion phytoestrogens have never been compared head-to-head, but dandelion products are likely to be as effective as those derived from soy for the potential to help support symptoms of menopausal women and reducing immunity issues.


Dried leaf - 4 to 10 grams three times a day for fluid retention.
Tincture (1:5, 25 percent ethanol) - 2 to 5 milliliters three times a day, or 5 to 10 milliliters of juice from fresh leaf twice daily.

Dosage of the root is lower - 3 to 5 grams three times a day, either of dried root or as a tea, or as a liquid extract; (Commission L recommends a 1:5, 25 percent formulation), 5 to 10 milliliters three times a day. Or 4 to 8 milliliters of fresh juice from the roots once a day.

The British Pharmacopeia recommends a slightly higher dosage of 5 to 10 milliliters.

Take 1 capsule, 3 times daily, with meals.



Dandelion is a rich source of potassium, so the potassium depletion that often occurs with prescription diuretics may not present much of a problem. Still, long-term use of diuretics can lead to potassium depletion, and that can be dangerous. If dandelion is being used to control fluid retention, it should be done with a doctor's supervision. Like all members of the Compositae family, dandelions can cause dermatitis, especially in children who already suffer from eczema. Long-term toxicity studies are completely lacking. Long-term, unsupervised use, is not a good idea.


It appears that something in dandelion-containing formulations can make the gallbladder contract, and that would be a bad thing if gallstones were present. Patients with gallbladder disease should only use dandelion-containing products after they have checked with their physicians.

Drug Testing

None of the components, either of the leaves or the roots, should interfere with standard workplace urine drug screening tests.

Excellent  Dandelion Leaf (Certified Organic) - 450 mg

I purchased TerraVita's Dandelion LEAF 450mg for use in place of Furosemide. The first product I tried was 250mg and didn't work. However this product has worked wonderfully once I got enough in my system. As a Diuretic this product works for me. I can also feel the difference in my body since Dandelion LEAF is also great food for the Liver.

Dandelion LEAF vs Furosemide  Dandelion Leaf (Certified Organic) - 450 mg

The product came in a timely manner and was packaged well.

However I purchased it to use in place of furosemide and it did work for a time but cannot keep up with the water retention my system is prone to due to CHF so alas this disappoints me. However do not let this discourage you if you have water retention and do not have CHF then by all means purchase this product. 450mg is a must and organic is a plus.
