About Dandelion

Dandelions have been in existence for millions of years. It was first thought to have evolved in Eurasia and North America but was later introduced to the new world by early European settlers. The Dandelion Root is a perennial herbaceous plant from the family of flowering plants, Asteraceae. It has its botanical name as Taraxacum and its two most common species are the red seeded dandelion (Taraxacum erythrospermum) and the common dandelion (Taraxacum officianale). The English name “Dandelion” is a version of the French word “dent de lion” which means lion's tooth and this was so given to the plant because of its coarsely toothed leaves similar to that of a lion's tooth. Its flowers are also very small.

Dandelions are edible plants starting from the roots to the leaves, stems and flowers. They are well known for their nutritional and medicinal purposes around the world. They have been used by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Chinese and Native Americans for over a thousand years as food and herb. They were used to make tea, wine, dye and help with the detoxification of the body against unhealthy bacteria. Their extracts were also mixed with other herb extracts to help with kidney problems, liver disease and constipation.

In recent times, dandelion roots have been discovered to have more health benefits than before. It is now being used as a blood purifier to reduce blood cholesterol and enhance healthy clear skin. It is also used for arthritis, hangover, chronic illness, high blood pressure and heart failure. It has also been referred to as Irish daisy, Lion's tooth, Priest's crown, Blowball, Milkwitch and Cankerwort in different parts of the world.
