Benefits of Dandelion
• Promotes Liver Health
Dandelion contains polysaccharides, which are known to reduce stress on the liver and support the production of bile. Dandelion has been used as a diuretic to promote liver health. The polysaccharides in dandelion support the liver’s filtration system against potentially harmful chemicals in food. Some studies have also shown that dandelion may reduce levels of fat stored in the liver, and its antioxidant properties may support the protection of the liver against oxidative stress caused by free radicals.
• Promotes Prebiotic Activity
Dandelion is a rich source of inulin, a prebiotic fiber. Prebiotics are a source of food for the healthy bacteria found in the gut. A healthy level of probiotics promotes a healthy digestive system. Inulin has been shown to support reduced symptoms of constipation and promote the movement of food throughout the digestive system.
• Promotes Healthy Lipid and Fat Levels
Healthy levels of fats and lipids are crucial for cardiovascular well-being. Some compounds in dandelion may promote decreased triglyceride and cholesterol levels in the body. At the same time dandelion promotes an increase in HDL (good cholesterol).
