(Taraxacum oficinale Weber)
Dandelion root has been used for centuries in China to cure certain types of cancer, and the latest research conducted in 2011 at the University of Windsor in Canada proved its ability to selectively destroy malignant melanoma cells without damaging healthy cells. Studies were also done on pancreatic and liver cancers, and dandelion was equally effective there, too. The substance with the power is luteolin, a flavonoid with extremely strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor effects. Dandelion has a diuretic effect, it stimulates bile secretion, relieves the liver of toxins, but also helps with allergies, soothes inflammation, joint and muscle pain, raises energy, lowers cholesterol, lowers blood pressure and blood sugar levels. Since it regulates digestion, prevents constipation and boosts metabolism, it is also good for weight loss, and as it has antibacterial properties, it helps with skin infections and acne. Even if we do not have any of these problems, dandelion can strengthen our immunity and improve the general condition of the body.
