Description
Promotes Healthy Liver Function*
USDA Organic
Caffeine Free Herbal Tea
What will Organic Roasted Dandelion Root do for me? Dandelion root tea has shown "choleretic" effects, which means that it can stimulate the liver to increase bile flow.* Once bile is released by the liver, its two main functions are to carry away waste and to break down fats during digestion. How do I know it works? Dandelion's beneficial effects on liver and biliary tract function have been proven in pharmacological studies.* When should I use it? Drink one cup prepared with 1 to 2 tea bags, three times daily for up to 4-6 weeks. How does it taste? A pleasant roasted taste, sweet and slightly bitter.



From the corners of the earth, to the bottom of your teacup, we're preserving tradition and creating a sustainable future. For over 30 years we have been making herbal teas blending the ancient art of traditional formulating with the most modern methods to ensure you a consistently reliable and good tasting cup.

We know that you choose to live as if there is a tomorrow, as we do. That's why we purchase our herbs and manufacture our teas sustainability.

These steps directly influence the amount of beneficial components that will end up in your tea cup! Gently squeeze the tea bag to release the remaining extract. Unless otherwise prescribed, drink 3 freshly prepared cups daily.

Health Notes

Dandelion

Dandelion
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Bitter herbs are thought to stimulate digestive function by increasing saliva production and promoting both stomach acid and digestive enzyme production.1 As a result, they are particularly used when there is low stomach acid but not in heartburn (where too much stomach acid could initially exacerbate the situation). These herbs literally taste bitter. Some examples of bitter herbs include greater celandine, wormwood, gentian,dandelion, blessed thistle, yarrow, devil's claw, bitter orange, bitter melon, juniper, andrographis, prickly ash, and centaury.2. Bitters are generally taken either by mixing 1-3 ml tincture into water and sipping slowly 10-30 minutes before eating, or by making tea, which is also sipped slowly before eating.

Constipation
Dose: Refer to label instructions

The unprocessed roots of fo-ti possess a mild laxative effect. The bitter compounds in dandelion leaves and root are also mild laxatives.

Edema
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Herbs that stimulate the kidneys were traditionally used to reduce edema. Herbal diuretics do not work the same way that drugs do, thus it is unclear whether such herbs would be effective for this purpose. Goldenrod (Solidago cnadensis) is considered one of the strongest herbal diuretics.1 Animal studies show, at very high amounts (2 grams per 2.2 pounds of body weight), that dandelion leaves possess diuretic effects that may be comparable to the prescription diuretic furosemide (Lasix(R)).2 Human clinical trials have not been completed to confirm these results. Corn silk (Zea mays) has also long been used as a diuretic, though a human study did not find that it increased urine output.3 Thus, diuretic herbs are not yet well supported for use in reducing edema.

Pregnancy and Postpartum Support
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Many tonic herbs, which are believed to strengthen or invigorate organ systems or the entire body, can be taken safely every day during pregnancy. Examples include dandelion leaf and root, red raspberry leaf, and nettle. Dandelion leaf and root are rich sources of vitamins and minerals, including beta-carotene, calcium, potassium, and iron. Dandelion leaf is mildly diuretic (promotes urine flow); it also stimulates bile flow and helps with the common digestive complaints of pregnancy. Dandelion root is traditionally used to strengthen and invigorate the liver.1

Parts Used & Where Grown

Closely related to chicory, dandelion is a common plant worldwide and the bane of those looking for the perfect lawn. The plant grows to a height of about 12 inches, producing spatula-like leaves and yellow flowers that bloom year-round. Upon maturation, the flower turns into the characteristic puffball containing seeds that are dispersed in the wind. Dandelion is grown commercially in the United States and Europe. The leaves and root are used in herbal supplements.

    Comments about Traditional Medicinals® Organic Roasted Dandelion Root Herbal Tea:

    I'm drinking my first cup of this tea right now, after seeing it in the grocery store and buying it on a whim. I heard it was supposed to be a similar taste to coffee (I'd actually read about how to collect and roast your own dandelion root a few weeks ago) and, as I drink a ton of coffee, I wanted to try it.

    The smell takes some getting used to, but the taste of the tea itself was indeed a bit reminiscint of coffee, but with a more herbal flavor (unsurprisingly.) It wasn't bitter at all in my opinion, but the flavor also wasn't too strong; I may have needed to give it more time to brew. Adding a little pure sugar changed the flavor in a surprising way, giving it an almost honey-like taste imo. It's very soothing and unique, and in taste alone I love this tea.

    I can't say anything about the health benefits as this is my first cup, but I'm tentatively hopeful!

        Comments about Traditional Medicinals® Organic Roasted Dandelion Root Herbal Tea:

        IF, you have Edema of the feet and lower legs, put two Dandelion tea bags, in a 12-14oz. cup, heat the water in the microwave, place the two tea bags in the cup for about 10 minutes, squeeze the bags to get all the "good" out of them, sweeten to taste, add a little lemon juice, dring two cups every day, in two weeks you will see the difference.
        Takes a couple of days to get use to the taste, then you will look forward to it!

        It is a little "pricy" but well worth it!

        THIS will relieve your Edema, also drink plenty of water.

            I bought this tea to cleanse my digestive system and to cleanse my liver. I mix equal parts dandelion root with peppermint tea as peppermint tea stimulates bile secretion as does the dandelion root. The dandelion root tastes a little bitter on its own, but tastes great with the peppermint. Sometimes I add lemon juice too.

              Comments about Traditional Medicinals® Organic Roasted Dandelion Root Herbal Tea:

              Prior to recent travel to California I wanted to stop drinking coffee. Generally, I drank 1 large (20oz.) cup (and sometimes a smaller cup or even more later in the day) each day. However, I drank much Dutch Bros. coffee and other coffee in CA. The day after my return to NY (March 2, 2013) I had pain that seemed like indigestion. Therefore, I purchased this tea to help me get off of coffee and to aid my digestion. First, I tried taking another (usually very helpful and well-known name brand) product several times as prescribed but, this time, it did not work! The Dandelion Root tea worked wonders, although not instantly (not the very first cup), and the pain dissolved completely!! Drinking the tea along with and/or after meals has proven to be very helpful to my digestive system. Also, I have been able to drink this tea with and without a sweetener. I do not experience any funny/unusual smells or tastes from this tea as some others have. At the same time, I recognize that everyone has a different sense of smell and taste. I signed on to GNC to purchase more boxes of this tea and to try some of the other GNC teas. Prior to drinking the Dandelion Root tea, I generally purchased Aloe Vera or Vitamin E oil products from this company. Now, along with the DR tea, I am purchasing more GNC teas and other products, especially as (a person in the 50-year old age range) I seek to have better health. And, I have already suggested the DR tea and given some bags of it to a family member who has suffered with digestion problems after treatment for cancer of the esophagus. To everyone: I recommend trying the tea with or after meals or anytime of the day. So far, I have been drinking this tea everyday, sometimes sipping on a cup of it throughout the day. As another person mentioned in their post, maybe this is TMI but, I have also had little to no gas than what I was experiencing at the beginning of and after my travels between NY and CA. I could be wrong, even so, I also attribute this benefit to the DR tea.

                After reading all the posted comments, I was truly expecting an awful tasting tea. The aroma from the bag seemed to confirm others' thoughts. Amazingly, it was not nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. I am a tea drinker and I never add sweetener to my tea. I do agree that it has a unique taste among teas that I have sampled, but for the health benefits, it is a winner.

                I bought this tea for the purpose of a cleansing drink, luckily I mix it with other ingredients because if I didn't I would want to return it. I like tea but am not a tea enthusiast and read that this was bitter but I was in for a surprise. Alone it is disgusting, even with honey or sugar. It even smells gross. If you plan to buy this just for the taste, make sure you know what it tastes like first.
