Dandelion root tea has shown "choleretic" effects, which means that it can stimulate the liver to increase bile flow.* Once bile is released by the liver, its two main functions are to carry away waste and to break down fats during digestion. Dandelion?s beneficial effects on liver and biliary tract function have been proven in pharmacological studies.* Dandelion root tea has a pleasant roasted taste, sweet and slightly bitter.
About Traditional Medicinals®
In early 1974, three young friends started Traditional Medicinals® in the back store room of a small herb shop along the Russian River in Northern California. The company was founded with the intention of providing herbal teas for self care, while preserving the knowledge and herbal formulas of Traditional Herbal Medicine (THM).
At the time, traditional herbal tea infusions had all but faded away in the United States. And never before had these reliable formulas been available in convenient tea bags.
Over the decades that followed, the company introduced millions of health conscious consumers to traditional herbal tea formulas and the concepts of THM. These reliable natural teas were well received and Traditional Medicinals® has grown dramatically.
Well over a billion cups of tea have been produced at our beautiful country facility and some products like Organic Smooth Move®, Organic Throat Coat® and Organic Mother?s Milk® have become mainstream and can be found in supermarkets and drug stores throughout North America. Additionally, our product offerings have expanded to include some of our best selling tea formulas in other forms such as pastilles, syrups and capsules.
From our simple beginnings we have been able to share the wonder of herbs and pass along the knowledge contained in the great systems of Traditional Herbal Medicine. To this we have added clinical testing and scientific understanding, as well as sophisticated processes to ensure you reliable products. So, while our business has grown and evolved, we remain rooted in the serious and spirited commitment with which we began over thirty years ago.

Brew Well to be Well®
For maximum benefit, herbal tea must be properly prepared. Pour 8 oz. freshly boiled water over one or two tea bags in a cup. Cover cup and steep 15 minutes. These steps directly influence the amount of beneficial components that will end up in your teacup! Gently squeeze the tea bag to release the remaining extract.
Unless otherwise prescribed, drink three freshly prepared cups daily.
