Dandelion can be found growing everywhere - many people treat it as a troublesome garden weed to be eradicated, however it has so much to offer in terms of food and medicine and should be treated with more respect. The name dandelion is derived from the French 'dent de lion' meaning tooth of the lion. The liver plays a vital role in detoxification and many other metabolic processes in the body. Herbalists believe that a poorly-functioning liver can have a wide-ranging impact on overall health.
