supports normal digestion and liver function
Dandelion assists normal gastric and liver function. It also contributes to the well-being of the gastrointestinal system due to its prebiotic effect.
Among other things, dandelion contains the bitter substances taraxin and taraxsterol. As the name suggests, bitter substances have a bitter taste and can thus help stimulate the secretion of bile. Fermented Dandelion Extract also contains live lactic acid bacteria due to the fermentation. Another benefit of fermentation is that the extract is unpasteurised, which preserves the live lactic acid bacteria, allowing it to colonise the intestinal system.
Even if you have had your gallbladder removed, you can drink Fermented Dandelion Extract, as the gallbladder only acts as a storage vessel for the bile already produced. So, dandelion can still have an effect on gastrointestinal and renal function, and the live lactic acid bacteria can colonise the intestinal system.
