There is a high concentration of the carbohydrate inulin in the root of the dandelion, which is a form of soluble fiber that is present in plants and helps to promote the growth and maintenance of healthy gut bacteria in your digestive tract ( 2 ). The root of the dandelion is typically dried and brewed into a tea, but it can also be consumed whole in the same manner as other types of root vegetables.
Dandelion herb, whether it's fresh or dried, is also used to help people eat more and calm upset stomachs. The root of the dandelion plant has been used to help with digestion and as a mild laxative. Early research shows that dandelion may help improve the function of the liver and gallbladder.
◉ Lowering blood pressure - There isn't much research to back up the idea that dandelion can be used to lower blood pressure. But the potassium in dandelion leaves is good for you. There is evidence from clinical trials that potassium can help lower blood pressure. A meta-analysis is a good example.
People who took a potassium supplement every day saw a big drop in their blood pressure in 15 randomized, controlled trials. People who already had high blood pressure saw a bigger drop in their blood pressure.
◉ Aiding weight loss - Some researchers have suggested that dandelion could help people lose weight.
Researchers think that compounds in the dandelion plant may help the body use carbohydrates more efficiently and absorb less fat. But there isn't much evidence to back up this claim.
◉ Reducing cancer risk - Some small but promising studies have shown that dandelion may help slow the growth of some kinds of cancer.
So far, researchers have looked at how dandelion affects the growth of cancer in test tubes and found that it may help slow the growth of some types of cancer.
One study that looked at how cancer grows in a test tube found that dandelion extract may help stop liver cancer from spreading. Other studies on colon cancer, breast cancer, pancreatic cancer, and prostate cancer have found the same benefits.
But, just like with other possible benefits, more research is needed to show how effective dandelions can be as part of a treatment for cancer.
◉ Boosting the immune system - There's more and more evidence that dandelion tea can help the immune system.
Researchers have found that dandelion has properties that fight both viruses and bacteria. For example, a 2014 study found that dandelions slow the growth of hepatitis B in test tubes containing both human and animal cells.
But more research needs to be done to find out what effect dandelions have on the immune system.
