According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, dandelion has been historically used to treat liver diseases. The historical use of licorice root is to contribute to a healthy throat and to protect against viruses. Ginseng also enhances the immune system. The antioxidant and antimicrobial properties of typhonium rhizome were discussed in a study published in the American Journal of Biochemistry and Biotechnology in 2008. According to the study, extracts from typhonium contain a considerable ability to help combat bacterial growth.
