Dandelion Root Extract
What is it?
Dandelion root extract has been used as a potential anti-inflammatory and in gastric cancer therapies. Specifically, it reduces inflammation and severity in symptoms for ulcerative colitis. With ulcerative colitis being a main precursor to colorectal cancer, dandelion root extract also acts as a preemptive measure for those prone to gastro-intestinal issues.
What has it been shown to do?
Dandelion root extract has been shown to be selective towards gastric cancer cells and inhibits their migration. This reduces the chance of cancer progressing to other areas.
Although more studies are needed to be done to know the specific pathways in which the extract inhibits cancer cells. dandelion root can easily be incorporated into your daily nutrition through various forms of tinctures, liquid extracts, tablets or a cup of caffeine-free tea or coffee.
