For Human Health - Dandelion Root Extract Powder


Dandelion root extract has been used since ancient times for its healthful properties and support for liver complaints.  In Korean herbal medicine, dandelion has been used to improve energy levels and health. It is generally accepted by many people in Mexico, and elsewhere in the world, that beneficial effects are available in natural plants. Indeed, research has shown that compounds in plants have pharmacokinetic effects. Dandelion extract long speculated to have antioxidant activity and hepatoprotective properties, is one such plant.

Dandelion root extract contains chemicals whose biological activities are actively being explored for roles in human health. In particular, evidence suggests that dandelion contains antioxidant and redness-resistant compounds.

One study investigated the antioxidative effects of dandelion root in rabbits fed a high-cholesterol diet. Results showed that dandelion extract positively affected antioxidant enzyme activities and lipid profiles. Researchers believe this suggests dandelion root extract could protect against oxidative stress related to certain circulatory disorders.

The Institute of Agricultural Medicine in Poland tested therapeutic herbs for kynurenic acid, an amino acid that has generated interest for digestive system support, specifically bile production. The highest concentration of this compound was detected in dandelion. Because dandelion root extract helps to stimulate bile production and bile transport toxins out of the body, dandelion root may extract support your body’s natural immune response. A study devised to compare the activity of artichoke, dandelion, turmeric and rosemary found their antioxidant activity to support the rationale the traditional inclusion of these ingredients in gallbladder applications.
