How much dandelion supplement should I take?

A Answers (1)

  • Adults (18 years and older):
    • There is no proven effective dose for dandelion in adults. However, doses of 2-8 grams of dried root taken by mouth in an infusion or decoction have been used.
    • Doses of 4-8 milliliters of a 1:1 leaf fluid extract in 25 percent alcohol have been used.
    • Doses of 1-2 teaspoons of a 1:5 root tincture in 45 percent alcohol have been used.

    You should read product labels, and discuss all therapies with a qualified healthcare provider. Natural Standard information does not constitute medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
