What is Dandelion root Extract powder?

Although most people view the dandelion as a weed, those in the world of alternative medicine see it as a healthy herb that is useful in treating many problems. The root, flower and leaves of the dandelion are full of health benefits.

For centuries, dandelion root has been used as a medicinal herb by cultures all over the world. In Europe, where the dandelion is still strongly considered a medicinal and nutritional source, dandelion roots are used for weight loss, fever, diabetes and diarrhea. Chinese herbalists traditionally used dandelion root to treat digestive disorders, inflammation of the breast in women, milk flow in lactating women and appendicitis. Native Americans used dandelion root in a boiled version to treat swelling, skin problems, stomach upset and kidney disease.

Herbalists and medical doctors use dandelion root to help detoxify and treat diseases associated with the liver. Dandelion root may also increase appetite and help maintain a healthy digestive system, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center.

There are hundreds of species of dandelion that grow in many areas of North America, Asia and Europe. In France and Germany, the dandelion is cultivated primarily for its medicinal value. All parts of the dandelion--flower, leaves and roots--are used for medicinal and nutritional purposes. In Europe, the leaves of the dandelion are eaten in salads, sandwiches or other ways that greens are eaten for their nutritional value. The leaves are best when harvested in the spring; roots are most functional if harvested in the fall. Dandelion roots are dark brown, fleshy and brittle and filled with a milky substance that is bitter to the taste with a slight odor.

Dandelion is an herbal medicine used for liver and gall bladder problems, increase appetite, and to help decrease water retention (a diuretic).
