Even though many consider it a weed without any use, dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) is a valuable plant, used both as food and as medicine. However, more and more research show that dandelion root is one of the most powerful weapons in the fight against cancer. Dandelion is known to have diuretic properties, cleanses the liver, helps treat allergies and is a good ally in the fight against high cholesterol. Dandelion root is a good source of potassium, vitamin A, iron, calcium, folic acid, magnesium and vitamin C. In this study we used Radix Taraxaci cum herba (RTH) as a medium for the cultivation of Cordyceps militaris mushushroom liquid mycelium culture to investigate the amount of cordicepine. In the classical liquid culture after 21 days of fermentation without stirring, 23.33 ppm cordicepine was determined, and in the liquid culture with RTH, 29.72 ppm cordicepine was determined.
