The action of Dandelion is very much via stimulation of the liver and kidney function. Both parts of the herb have activities in both areas though the leaves are stronger for the Kidney excretion and the root for Liver based secretion. The bitter constituents of the herbs stimulate, by reflex from the taste receptors, the increased production of bile by the liver. This in turn is secreted into the intestines where the effect is to increase digestive potential and increase the loss of metabolic waste through the faeces. The loss of toxins this way means the liver is able to process more such wastes from the blood with benefits to all the tissues.
