About Dandelion Root
Dandelion root for me is the Rodney Dangerfield of herbs: "I get no RESPECT" Yet, the uses of Dandelion root are interesting, to say the least. What other herb can boast about its ability to help the liver and kidneys, has been used since the seventh century, and has a chemical composition that reads like a who's who of compounds?
Benefits of Dandelion Root
- Supports heart health

A study found that dandelion root positively impacted the cholesterol levels of rabbits otherwise given a high (bad cholesterol) diet. A high cholesterol diet can lead to poor heart health and in this study, bad cholesterol levels were lowered and good cholesterol levels were raised with the supplementation of dandelion root. A different study found dandelion root to be beneficial to healthy liver function and helped protect the liver against alcohol damage.
