For years, dandelion root has been used in Chinese medicine to treat gout, urinary tract infections and kidney disease. The herb is successful as a natural gout treatment because it eliminates uric acid by increasing urine flow. The increase in urination also helps to eliminate salt and water from your kidneys.*
Sip on some organic dandelion tea, or blend the herb into a smoothie. Some compounds of the dandelion root may interfere with the absorption of certain medicines, so if you take medication check with your doctor before you use dandelion root.
