The Benefits of Dandelion

Yes, you read that right! The weed that you poison on your lawn is actually extremely healthy for you. Dandelions are packed with vitamins A, C and D, zinc, iron, magnesium and potassium. They are chiefly used for detoxing the body, specifically the liver. Dandelion can aid with inflammation, eczema, and regulate blood-sugar levels. The green leaves can be eaten raw in salads, cooked, or brewed into tea. You can buy dandelion at most supermarkets and pre-made organic teas are available. Why buy the plant at the store when it probably grows on your front lawn?!
