Dandelion - Taraxacum Officinale

Taraxacum Officinale

Family Weber Compositae

Taraxacum officinale, which means the “Official Remedy for Disorders” otherwise known as the common dandelion [1] . It is one most widely-respected plants, featuring in the Pharmacopoeias of Hungary, Poland, Switzerland and the Soviet Union as well as the the U.S. National Formulatory. Dandelion is one of the top 6 herbs in the Chinese herbal medicine chest and has been rated one of the top 4 green vegetables in overall nutritional value[2].

Dandelion is corrupted French for 'dents de lion' (tooth of the lion), referring to the jagged edge of the leaf. It is also known as bitterwort, wild endive, Irish daisy and some other names as well. It is “universally considered a noxious weed that “destroys” lawns” [3] - perhaps it should be rephrased as “lawns should be considered noxious environments because they encourage mowing which destroys valuable plants like Dandelions”.

The leaf of the Dandelion is used for salads, soups and stir frys, as well as in herbal teas. Is considered a high nutrient food and is primarily used to stimulate the digestion.

The root is used for medicinal purposes and Dandelion coffee is a well known substitute for caffeine-rich coffee.

Dandelion acts as a tonic to the whole system and destroys acids in the blood. it is recognised as a great blood builder and Purifier.

Containing organic sodium it is very good for Anaemia caused by a nutritive salts deficiency. It is also effective as a Liver Cleanser.
