Most people regard the common dandelion as an invasive and bothersome little weed that appears out of nowhere, but did you know that dandelions are a wonderful natural medicine and food source? They are one of the most nutritious plants since they contain a wealth of beneficial substances like vitamins, minerals, and even earthy goodness.
Dandelions have been used to cure psoriasis, various blood diseases, anemia, eczema, and depression throughout history.
They are an excellent source of numerous minerals and vitamins, including vitamins A and C, potassium, iron, fiber, calcium, zinc, magnesium, phosphorus, and a plethora of trace minerals. They are more protein-dense than a pound of spinach.
What makes them a good addition to your diet? The reasons are many; so let’s start counting.
Dandelion can boost appetite and digestion by restoring a healthy balance of good and harmful bacteria in the digestive tract.
The urination-inducing properties of dandelion help the kidneys flush out harmful toxins and extra fluids. It helps relieve constipation because it acts as a moderate laxative by making feces easier to pass.
