Dandelions are widely known as cute little weeds, but they also pack great benefits and have been used as a tea all over the world for ages.
|VITAMINS||Rich in vitamins A, B-complex, C, D, and K as well as minerals potassium, iron, and zinc.|
|DIGESTION||A mild laxative and appetite stimulant. Regular evacuations will balance digestive system bacteria.|
|DETOX||Healthy digestion and bacteria flora will definitely cleanse your body from what you eat as well as daily chemicals.|
|CHOLESTEROL||Lowers bad cholesterol and regulates cholesterol in general. May be a good tool against hardening arteries.|
|KIDNEY HEALTH||As a mild diuretic, it will flush out liquids and remove toxins from your body. Great for indulgent nights.|
|BLOOD PRESSURE||Aside from being a diuretic, it also contains potassium and fiber which help regulate blood pressure.|
Dandelion root also has ANTIOXIDANT properties. Not only that, but the vitamin B has been proven to help with DEPRESSION and mood disorders.
Whether you’re feeling weary ON YOUR PERIOD or anemic, iron and zinc can help recharge you. And speaking of periods, potassium always effectively HELPS AGAINST CRAMPS for me. Definitely has been useful.
You can dig them up yourself, but stay clear of false dandelions!
