ANSWER: May-26-2009 by Wellesley Gayle

Hi John,

Please see the picture above.

Dandelion (Cassia Occidentailis) has been used for medicinal purposes since the 10th century and has proven value as a diuretic (flushing excess water from the body).

It also promotes the flow of bile and stimulates the appetite. Dandelion juice once enjoyed considerable popularity as a diuretic, laxative and remedy for rheumatism. In folk medicine, dandelion is also used as a remedy for haemorrhoids, gout, rheumatism, eczema, other skin conditions, and diabetes. (JamaicaGleaner.com)

Hope that helps.
Stay in touch John.

I don't always drink it black (like coffee), I also add my Lasco and honey :-)
