Although you may think of dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) as a pesky weed, the plant has long been used in herbal medicine for its appetite-stimulating, digestion-aiding, and laxative effects.
In traditional Chinese medicine and Native American medicine, the dandelion root was used for stomach problems and liver conditions. In Europe, it was also used for diabetes, boils, and inflammation. Today, herbalists often suggest dandelion for the following conditions:
- Gastrointestinal disorders
- High cholesterol
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Liver conditions
- Skin conditions
Although there is some overlap between the root and the leaf, dandelion leaves are said to be a diuretic and galactagogue (a plant that helps to increase breast milk production in nursing mothers).
Capsules, tinctures, and teas containing dandelion leaves, roots, flowers, or the entire plant can be found in many health food stores. Dandelion leaves can also be consumed as food, in salads, or as a cooked green.
To use as a tea, pour 1 cup boiling water over 2 tsp. of herb, cover and steep 3-5 minutes.
