Dandelion Root Extract Powder

This supplement is taken from the root of the taraxacum plant, more commonly known as the dandelion. While the entire plant is edible, the root is frequently used in dietary supplements for its various benefits.
Dandelions are also used in food and drink such as salads, wine, soups and teas. Occasionally, the roasted root is utilized as a coffee substitute. Since studies are still being conducted on the efficacy of this herbal extract, it is intended to promote overall health only.

DANDELION ROOT SIDE EFFECTS

I don't know why they only have 3 stars for taste. Great Taste is one of the benefits of this stuff. I have always liked dandelion root tea (roasted or raw). I have usually purchased various brands of herbal dandelion root tea in tea bags, and occasionally dug up and washed and chopped my own dandelion roots. It is so much faster to just add a quarter tsp of this to a cup of hot water and it tastes great ( a little stronger than the usual very mild taste of fresh unroasted root tea, but not as coffeeish as roasted root tea. Sometimes I add ginger or a blend of spices and some soy milk for dandelion "chai." As others have mentioned, lots of studies say dandelion is healthy too. I haven't noticed any particular health effects but I'm sure my liver appreciates it.*

I received my order quickly. My package of DRE arrived with a small opening in the seal, which left the powder all over the inside of the shipping envelope. I contacted Bulk Supplements and within the hour CS responded. Five stars for CS.
I use the DRE in my DIY items. I also give the product 5 stars - pure product. DRE has many benefits. Buying in bulk allows you to make your own capsules, salves, etc at a very affordable cost.
Recommend DRE and will purchase more in the future.*

I received this product in great shape. I had found the benefits of the Dandelion and attempted to process and eat the ones that were growing in my own yard. The leaves could be handled without a great deal of fuzz just getting them dried is hard but the root I couldn’t even figure how to process it manually. I am glad I did. The product came and is a dark brown powder. I use it in my morning coffee I just put a small amount in the filter along with the coffee It helps my body detox. The root is extremely more powerful than the leaf. I also use it to brew a tea with other herbs and am anxious to find other uses for the very useful herb. *
