Dandelion is one of the most powerful herbs out there and it is probably growing in your own backyard. Most people considered dandelion to be a weed but it is actually medicine for you. Dandelion roots and leaves have been used as medicine for thousands of years. Dandelion is a great herb for cleansing the liver and for boosting liver functioning and it is also effective for indigestion, fluid retention, rheumatism, arthritis, constipation, and appetite loss.
