Dandelion helps in detox of the liver and restores hormonal imbalance. This is simply because of the hormone metabolizing action by the liver. If you ensure that your liver is functioning optimally, you can be sure to handle menopausal symptoms along with several other gynecological problems like irregular menstruation and PMS.
Dandelion has pronounced diuretic properties which helps in losing those extra pounds. Its mode of action does not have anything to do with the intrinsic reason for weight gain, but it can help in effective weight loss without exhausting the critical potassium level of the body.

In case this is the purpose for your use, take it for a couple of months for regularizing the functioning of your gall bladder and liver, but remember to slow down its usage with time.

You need not put in any effort but it restores and re-strengthens your digestive organs.

The dosage pattern to be followed by adults is as follows: 250 to 500 mg thrice a day with meals. Before you begin taking any supplement, consult your doctor.
