Dandelion in distilled grain alcohol
Dandelion is a gentle detoxifying bitter tonic, useful for eliminating toxins, pollutants and wastes through the liver and kidneys, cleansing the blood and tissues of the body. It is traditionally used in conditions relating to a sluggish liver. Also, unlike traditional diuretics, dandelion does not leach potassium from the body and is very helpful for high blood pressure. The extract is safe during pregnancy for mild edema and is also effective for bed-wetting in children. Dandelion is diuretic, laxative, anti-rheumatic, a detoxifier and a digestive tonic.
Typical dosage: 1 teaspoon/dropper 2-3 times daily under tongue or in water; children under 12, 1/2 dosage. Tonic period is usually 2-3 months.
