Dandelion is commonly known as a weed and grows in nearly every part of the world. The leaves are often used in salads and cooking and have a mildly bitter taste. Bitter foods have a cleansing effect on your liver. However, dandelion root is even more beneficial to your liver.

Dandelion root is extremely bitter and is found in many herbal liquids, powders and capsules. In herbal medicine it was traditionally used for hepatitis, jaundice, gallbladder infections and for helping to dissolve gallstones. It is very helpful for people with a sluggish liver, which can be responsible for the following symptoms:

  • Headaches
  • Bad breath
  • Fatigue
  • Indigestion & abdominal bloating
  • Irritability
  • Sugar cravings
  • Skin problems
  • Excess weight

Dandelion root is also a very mild laxative, gently cleansing the bowels without being habit forming or addictive.

Livatone Liver Tonic powder and capsules contain dandelion root.
