The Dandelion is a plant found all over the globe and used in many types of ways, including food and medicine. It is often used as a natural antiviral, anti-inflammatory and anti-infection remedy within Traditional Chinese Medicine and other holistic practices. In Chinese medicine, the Dandelion can be used for skin conditions, indigestion, common colds, flu, urinary tract infection (UTI), lung infections, fevers, eye infections and chest infections.

Studies have found that dandelion extract has an antiviral and antimicrobial effect, thus, making it an antibacterial agent. Such properties are very important for management of Covid-19 symptoms because the host inflammatory response is a major cause of lung damage. 

Since the outbreak of Covid-19, there has been a growing interest in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Studies have suggested that TMC, alone or combined with western treatments, improves symptoms related to Covid-19 and other respiratory illnesses. Since the outbreak of Covid-19, it is reported that more than 3,000 TCM practitioners across China have been sent into Wuhan and collaborated with doctors of western medicine to control the spread of the disease.

In Wuhan China, the Dandelion is considered one of the most effective ingredients in many successful herbal formulas created to fight Covid-19. It is available in many forms such as teas, extracts, ointments, powders and dried organic root.

The Dandelion can also mixed with other herbal ingredients, such as:
