Dandelions are a rich source of vitamins A, B complex, C and D, and minerals such as potassium, zinc and good amounts of iron and manganese, which contain a higher mineral content than vegetable– similar leaves such as spinach. One cup of dandelion greens represents 112% of the recommended daily dose of vitamin A, 32% of vitamin C, 535% of vitamin K and 218 mg of potassium, 103 mg of calcium and 1.7 mg of iron. Wow! Once ingested, dandelions are also an excellent source of vitamin H, which contributes to weight loss. The leaves and roots of the dandelion, or the whole plant, are used fresh or dried in dandelion teas, capsules or extracts. Dandelion supplements are available at a variety of health food stores. But why go for dandelion supplements when you can pluck them right in your backyard!

Medicinal Uses of Dandelion:

Dandelion mead (flowers, roots and leaves) has been used for centuries in traditional medicine and medicinal teas. In conventional medicine, dandelion roots and leaves were used to treat detoxification of the liver. Native Americans were known to have used a decoction of dandelion (a liquid made by boiling the herb in water) to treat kidney disease, swelling, skin problems, heartburn, headaches, and stomach. They also used natural dandelion as a diuretic and to reduce inflammation. Chinese doctors used the dandelion tool to treat digestive problems, appendicitis, and breast problems (such as inflammation or lack of milk flow). In Europe, herbalists have incorporated it into dandelion remedies for fever, boils, eye problems, diabetes and diarrhea.

Today, dandelion roots are mainly used as an appetite stimulant, digestive aid, and liver and vesicular function. It is believed that the fresh root or its preparations are more powerful than the dried root itself. Also, dandelion greens have a diuretic effect as they increase salt and water to stimulate the excretion of urine by the kidneys. There is also evidence that this property of dandelion greens can normalize blood sugar in people with diabetes.

Dandelion Nutrition:

Wait, that’s not all, because the natural dandelion flower is also edible. You can use the flower and leaves in salads, and there are also natural benefits of dandelion tea. Roasted and ground roots can be used as caffeine-free dandelion coffee. The flower also, makes great jelly. And who hasn’t heard of Dandelion wine? Flower petals, along with other natural ingredients, have been used for centuries to make dandelion wine. What a great thing! And of course, so wild!
