Dandelion has been shown to help the liver and gallbladder filter out toxins and purify the blood, as well as stimulates the kidneys to eliminate toxins through the urine. Dandelion contains enzyme-like compounds that assist cell metabolism and increase bile secretion in the liver. As a result, dandelion inhibits bile duct inflammation, cirrhosis, dyspepsia with constipation, gallstones, hepatitis and jaundice. Other research shows dandelion exhibits anti-inflammatory properties and restricts the development of an enlarged or swollen liver. In essence, all glands associated with digestive function respond quickly and effectively to dandelion. Dandelion provides viscous fiber which absorbs toxins from the bowel, balances intestinal flora, lowers serum cholesterol, reduces bowel transit time, and soothes digestive tract tissues. Dandelion is also a source of bitter flavonoids that purify the blood, increase urine flow, relieve inflammation and muscle spasms, and provide a mild laxative action. The herb is especially beneficial for spleen ailments and for eliminating uric acid buildup.

Gentian has been shown to improve absorption of vitamin B12 and iron, and thus is an effective remedy for iron-deficiency anemia. Gentian also improves gallbladder, liver and pancreatic function; stimulates hair growth in some adults; relaxes muscle spasms; and provides antifungal activity in vitro against Aspergillus niger. German research studies indicate gentian improves the body’s sensitivity to the effects of adrenalin.
