DANDELION

Dandelion (Taraxacum mongolicum Hand.-Mazz) is a hardy perennial herb with long, jagged green leaves arising from the ground surface, hollow stems 4-20 inches long, golden yellow flowers and deep-reaching taproots. Recognized worldwide as a weed, it is also well-known for its health benefits. Native to temperate areas of the Northern Hemisphere, dandelion’s use in Eurasia predates written records and it was widely used in ancient China. Its name is derived from the French dent de leon, which means “lion’s tooth”, and refers to its leaf edges, shaped like a lion’s teeth.

Rich in phytochemicals, Dandelion contains; the bitter tasting sesquiterpene lactones, generally occurring as glycosides (taraxacin, mongolicumin B, taraxacosides, taraxacolides, dihydrolactucin and taraxinic acid derivatives), triterpenoids (taraxasterol, taraxerol and officinatrione), phenylpropanoids and phenolic acids and their derivatives (chlorogenic, chicoric, p-coumaric acid, caffeic acid, cichoric , ferulic acid, cinnamic, caffeoylquinic and caffeoyltartaric acids), coumarins (aesculin and cichoriin), lignans (mongolicumin A), polysaccharides, and smaller amounts of flavonoids (luteolin). It is a very good source of iron and a good source of calcium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and manganese. Dandelion root is a good source of soluble and insoluble dietary fiber, and the prebiotic soluble fiber, inulin, is present in large amounts.*
