Do you drink Dandelion Tea? If you don’t then you probably will after reading this. I’ve been having one cup a day, and here’s why:
Dandelion helps strengthen the immune system, balance blood sugar levels, relieve heartburn, and aid our digestive system by maintaining the proper bile flow.
Research has even found that dandelion can help increase the probiotics Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium in the gut!
Because dandelion helps reduce uric acid and stimulates urine production, it’s beneficial for fighting bacterial infections within the digestive tract as well as urinary tract infections.
Dandelion root has a natural diuretic effect, allowing your liver to more quickly eliminate toxins. The liver breaks down and stores amino acids, synthesize and metabolize fats and cholesterol, store glucose, and regulates our internal functions. The nutrients found in dandelions help cleanse our livers so they can do their job in cleansing our bodies!
Two studies (study one and study two) have shown that components in dandelion may reduce excess fat stored in the liver and help protect against oxidative stress in liver tissue itself!
THIS STUDY revealed a significant protection of liver tissue in mice exposed to toxic levels of acetaminophen (Tylenol). The researchers attributed this to the dandelion’s antioxidant content.
It’s also caffeine free so I often have it at night (and often in the morning too!). It’s tastes somewhat “earthy” but I have learned to love it!
You can get packs from any health food store in the tea section or multi-packs from Amazon.
