It is thought dandelion root tea promotes a healthy liver as it contains a variety of nutrients such as vitamins A, D, C, and E. According to a 2005 study, treatment with vitamin C has potential effects against fatty liver disease. Vitamin C, combined with vitamin E, helped lower levels of biomarkers in seventeen out of twenty-seven of participants who received nutrient treatment. Vitamin D deficiency is associated with liver disease by a number of sources. One source is a study including 118 patients with liver disease. Researchers found 109 of the participants suffered from vitamin D deficiency.

Research also indicates dandelion root tea helps cleanse the liver. The herb contains a fiber called inulin, which is suggested to enhance bile acid excretion, thus helping carry more toxins out of the body. In addition, dandelion root contains substances called polysaccharides. The benefits of several polysaccharides, DRP1 and DRP2, are shown in a 2017 study featuring mice. Based on findings from this study, it is possible polysaccharides can help reduce the risk for APAP-induced liver injury.
