What Dandelion herb Is:

In French, dandelion is pissenlit, which translates as "piss in bed," a rather vulgar reference to the urinary encouragement of this perennial herb. Blame (or thank) our early European settlers for bringing the dandelion to North America. Native Americans welcomed it readily for all sorts of uses. The roots can be dried, ground up, and brewed like coffee; the jagged leaves can be eaten in salads; and the yellow flowers make a nice wine. Curse their appearance in your finely manicured lawn, but don't deny yourself their phytochemical value.

A well known garden weed, dandelion is much valued as a herbal remedy. It is a rich source of vitamins and minerals, including potassium.The root is used to improve digestion as it stimulates the flow of digestive juices, including bile from the liver and gallbladder. This can have beneficial effects on many conditions. The leaves have a diuretic effect.
