Because of the increased bile production, the liver becomes more effective at digesting foods and liquids. Furthermore, bile helps transport toxins out of the body. In this manner, the root of dandelions can help support your body’s natural immune response so you can fend off a variety of illnesses.
As a result of its ability to help the liver produce bile, dandelion root is an effective herb for helping to prevent problems of the liver. It has demonstrated benefit for helping to regulate blood glucose levels, which means the liver does not have to spend as much time filtering out excess sugar content.
