The dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) is an extremely common genus of flowering plants here in the UK, which are found in lawns, pastures, waste grounds, orchards and roadsides across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. With burdock, dandelion is part of a popular fizzy here in England too!
In the case of dandelion Supplements, like Viridian Dandelion with Burdock 60 Capsules, these are commonly used for loss of appetite, an upset stomach, gallstones or intestinal gas. And when applied topically, dandelion is also considered to be a useful Skin toner.
At present, taking dandelion root orally is deemed safe for most individuals, however there are very rare cases where minor discomfort, an allergic reaction or diarrhoea may occur in others. If you are in any doubt about dandelion supplementation then be sure to seek the consultation of your GP before use.
