Dandelion

Dandelion is a member of the Asteraceae/Compositae family. Scientifically known as Taraxacum officinale, dandelion is harvested for the whole plant. The leaves, stem, root, and flower can all be used in different formulations. One dandelion constituent, taraxacin positively affects digestion. The bitter constituents of the root help to increase bile flow.

Dandelion is made up of sesquiterpene lactones (bitter substances), triterpenes and sterols (such as beta-sitosterol, beta-sitosterol-glucosides, taraxasterol, psi-taraxasterol, taraxerol, and taraxol), flavonoids (including apigenin-7-O-glucosides, luteolin-7-O-glucosides), mucilages, and inulin.

Dandelion has notably been used for dyspeptic complaints, infections of the urniary tract, liver and gallbladder complaints, and the loss of apetite.
