Getting to know: Dandelion

Updated: Sep 11, 2018

Dandelion is commonly used in folk medicine and more recently has been scientifically proven to relieve a variety of symptoms such as water retention, poor appetite, digestive problems, such as upset stomach, heartburn and indigestion. Dandelion is also an excellent detoxifier, ridding the body of toxic heavy metals, DDT and other poisons.

Dandelion is not just a cleansing herb. It's like a housekeeping service at a fancy hotel that, after tidying up and gathering the trash, leaves a mint behind on your pillow. Dandelion's parting gift is better than candy, though - it leaves behind vital nutrients such as vitamin A, B vitamins, manganese, iodine, calcium, iron, magnesium, selenium, silica and chlorophyll that give you energy and help your body stave off disease - Anthony William

Roasted dandelion is great alternative for coffee drinkers, trying to kick the caffeine habit. It has a robust, earthly flavour which not only satisfies the craving for a hot cup of something in the morning (or when you hit the mid afternoon slump), but it assists with kick starting your detoxing efforts for the day without negatively impacting your adrenal system with caffeine.

Roasted dandelion tea is a beverage that does not generally have any side effects, however if you are taking medications and/or prescribed supplements or are pregnant, breastfeeding or have kidney or gallbladder disorders, consult you health care practitioner before consuming.
