The Taraxacum or Dandelion is a bitter plant widespread throughout Europe. It is used by gourmets for its excellent salad that is achieved with its leaves.

The medicinal use of dandelion takes advantage of its properties bitter tonic, diuretic and hypo cholesterolic. The cholagogue action (the ability to increase the secretion of bile) and the effect on cell membranes of hepatocytes, make the product particularly suitable for the treatment of metabolic disorders in liver.

The administration of the dandelion also tends to normalize the alteration of serum transaminases. It is a plant choleretic, diuretic, mild laxative, primarily used in the treatment of sluggish liver, and constipation in liver failure and biliary, in food poisoning, in hypercholesterolemia.

The dandelion leaves are a popular spring salad. They have a pleasant aromatic bitter taste and eaten either alone or together with watercress and other herbs spring since time immemorial.
Until recent times no one knew what was based on their effect and therefore are considered obsolete. Later, with the introduction of vitamin research, have been found in these plants of spring abundant vitamins, especially vitamin C and is therefore considered more founded their therapeutic action.

Lately it has been found that these vitamins provide only a part of the positive effects. Precisely the dandelion is a typical example of how a medicinal plant can not be characterized only by an active principle but only the sum of a large number of different principles determines the proper specific action.
Thus in Dandelion have been found, along with the already known sostanzeamare and vitamin properties, also acting substances that stimulate the enzymatic activity of the major glands, especially the liver and kidneys. Their action goes even further; are considered capable of stimulating cellular metabolism overall.

This action is observable with particular intensity in the great glands of the body. However, this effect is present also in other districts of the organism. Currently we can attribute to the dandelion also connective tissue tropism and this is based on the action of dandelion in osteoarthritis. Dandelion promotes renal secretion and also acts as a diuretic, increasing the hepatic secretion also expounding its functionality cholagogue. This confirms the experience of the past, who considered the dandelion a good natural remedy for gallstones.

But there is also another area of application specific studies in the light of today presents itself as sufficiently well founded. Dandelion is not able to influence the calculations already formed, but on the predisposition to calculation formation then the diathesis.

Of this is likely to be primarily responsible the above mentioned action on metabolism and cell. The difficulty of being able to objectify the action of this treatment is in the nature of these diseases, but the fact remains that the patients after treatment dandelion feel lighter. The disturbances to the upper area right abdomen disappear and the tendency to relapse disappears or at least becomes more clearly rare.

It therefore seems possible to to arrive in this way, better and more quickly, in a latency phase of the disease. Since it so far, it is recognized in acid chenodeoxycholic a medicament active only in the decomposition of cholesterol gallstones but not other kinds of calculations, you should make use of the potential of dandelion in this field. And all the more so because the dandelion is completely nontoxic, even when administered for a long time and also has a positive effect on subjective symptoms and general toning.

The phytotherapists prefer the roots of the dandelion whom, in autumn, contain a higher concentration of inulin, phytosterols, vitamins of the B group and an alcohol group of triterpene beta-amirina, the taraxasterolo (which seems to be responsible for the beneficial effects on liver).

Modern medicine has deepened studies on the dandelion after the experiments of Rutherford and Vignal (1875) which, through laboratory tests, observed that the extract of dandelion acted causing the contraction of the gallbladder. Subsequently Chabrol and co-workers (1931) confirmed a cholagogue and choleretic action (facilitates the production of bile and its passage from the gallbladder to the duodenum, promoting good liver function and better digestion). Recent studies have also shown that the dandelion has a mild cardio kinetic action and this would be borne out by experiments on isolated frog heart. Other studies have also hypothesize its antidiabetic action.
