Golden Fields Dandelion & Burdock Coffee is a unique coffee substitute made from roasted dandelion (50%) and burdock (50%) roots.
Dandelion coffee helps combat liver problems, kidney problems and aids digestion. Dandelion is a mild natural laxative, a blood purifier, and an ideal diuretic due to its richness in minerals (it contains potassium, calcium, sodium, also phosphorous, iron, nickel, cobalt, tin, copper and zinc). This Dandelion coffee is a popular caffein-free coffee substitute. Dandelion coffee is suitable for a diabetic diet due to its inulin content.
The medicinal properties of burdock root are similar to those of dandelion root. Burdock is diuretic and diaphoretic, it is one of the best blood purifiers and a remedy for all skin diseases including eczema.
Put together, dandelion and burdock reinforce each other’s action, in particular as a liver tonic. Burdock contains its own bitter substance, lappin and is suitable for a diabetic diet. Dandelion & Burdock makes a light coffee alternative with a distinctive spicy burdock flavour. It is naturally caffeine-free.

Why a coffee substitute? Why a coffee alternative?
- Caffeine effects and noxiousness varies for each individual, but it increases with advancing age as the kidneys gradually deteriorate, leaving coffee acids to concentrate in the blood and body tissues: during this time, one is exposed to increase of blood pressure and heart rate, to hypoglycemia when coffee and sugar are combined, to rise of blood fat levels (interestingly, cholesterol levels can be reduced more effectively by giving up caffeine than through a low fat diet). Then comes a time when caffeine ceases to be a stimulant, no matter how much is drunk, and the fatigued body is exposed to some health catastrophe.
- Discontinuing coffee won’t make one feel better instantly: caffeine withdrawal symptoms from caffeine addiction, usually constant headaches, will persist over the time it takes the coffee poisons to be eliminated (up to two weeks). Dandelion Coffee Alternatives offer an alternative to the pernicious habit of the “coffee break” offering extra coffee to people who should not be drinking it in such large amounts, but gradually replacing it altogether.
- Dandelion coffee substitutes are suitable for all ages, also for children and teenagers for which caffeine has a detrimental effect on the nervous system growth. This is even more true in the case of caffeine and pregnancy – babies and foetuses are not yet able to eliminate coffee poisons.
- Decaf? Decaffeinated coffee is as noxious as whole coffee, it still contains some caffeine and all other poisons that are in the coffee (polyphenols and tanins that impair a good assimilation of the food we eat). Provided it has not been water extracted, it contains traces of the solvent used to remove the caffeine and has been shown to be linked to breast diseases (for women) and prostate problems (for men).
