Taraxacum officinale, aka the dandelion, has been used in many forms of traditional medicine for centuries. The entire plant is loaded with numerous vitamins, minerals, and fiber; including iron, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. The plant is rich in inulin, a carbohydrate that aids digestion. Because it contains very potent antioxidants, Beta Carotene and polyphenols the medical benefits continue to add on. Studies have shown that extracts of dandelion reduce inflammation significantly. Chicoric and chlorogenic acid in the plant has the ability to reduce blood sugar levels making it a possible candidate for use in diabetes treatments. Herbalists use dandelion because of the diuretic effect on the human body as well which aids in lowering cholesterol, reducing blood pressure, and as a natural weight control supplement. Several studies suggest it slows the growth of cancer cells in the breast, liver, colon, and stomach tissue. Dandelion is also effective in reducing or eliminating warts on skin surfaces. Apply a small amount to a paper towel or napkin twice a day for several days for results.
Tests have also claimed it slows the aging process and works well treating acne. The latest study found common dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) efficiently blocks the interaction between ACE2 cell surface receptor and SARS-CoV-2 spike protein D614, mutants D614G, N501Y, K417N and E484K in vitro.
Side effects of dandelion ingestion: I c XD
Side effects can include heartburn, diarrhea, skin irritation, and an upset stomach. It is possible to be allergic to dandelion root. Symptoms of a dandelion root allergy include rash, watery eyes, and other nasal allergy symptoms. We always recommend everyone to consult their doctor before putting anything into your body.
Like 99% of the herbal treatments FDA has glanced at "there still isn't enough proof that it can be certified" for anything, yet. Let's hope it doesn't take another thousand years to find some of the claims made by researcher's are fact and it can one day be marketed as an effective health component.
