[tab name="Use / Dosage"]
Dandelion is a non-potassium depleting diuretic (reportedly as effective as Lasix®) useful for treating fluid retention, cystitis, and hepatitis induced ascites (abnormal accumulation of fluid in the stomach). The herb is also applicable in cases of water retention due to heart problems. Its action is comparable to that of the drug Frusemide (Lasix®). The roots act as an antiviral agent, appetite stimulant, digestive aid, and may help promote gastrointestinal health. Dandelion flower has antioxidant properties.
Known Dosage (for Adults)
1 teaspoon of tincture daily for use as a gentle and longer term “blood purifier” or “cleanser” for the liver, blood and urinary system
Some research suggests that taking Dandelion tincture with Uva-Ursi tincture may reduce the rate of UTIs (urinary tract infections) in women.
No known toxic effects and can be taken in large quantities over a long period of time. As with all diuretics, drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration.
