As a herb, dandelion is an effective diuretic and contains a large amount of vitamin A. It is suggested that it has benefits to the liver (Sunsnik 1982). As a diuretic, it has a use in pre-contest bodybuilding, and its effects are comparable to furosemide (Racz-Kotilla, et al 1974), and is potassium sparing. It may work quite well, but there is no real research, and as there are effective alternative diuretics, I wouldn't use it. Remember that it may be a natural alternative to diuretic drugs, but still has side effects from this, so be careful.
