Dandelion root can be decocted as dandelion tea, added to herbal tea blends, made into dandelion extract, or infused into body care recipes. It has been used for centuries in traditional medicine practices all over the world as a restorative tonic, edible food, and in herbal beers and wines.
Dandelion was traditionally used in many systems of medicine to support digestive and gastrointestinal health.* Dandelion root's benefit to the digestive tract is two-fold as it contains inulin and is also a bitter digestive tonic which tones the digestive system and stimulates the appetite. It calms heat and also hot emotions and is thus helpful in those that are irritated.
