Most people think of dandelion as a diuretic. Traditionally, dandelion roots and leaves were used to support liver detoxification. Native Americans used it to support a healthy urinary tract, skin health, and to treat upset stomach. In traditional Chinese medicine, dandelion is used to support the liver and gall bladder, to promote digestion and to support the detoxification process. Studies show that dandelion root is especially high in antioxidants, which accounts for its many potent health benefits.
