Remember earlier I had talked about a powerful weed!? Well that powerful weed is the dandelion. Think of the dandelion as a superfood rather than a weed. The dandelion is actually an amazing plant! It can be used as a diuretic, a liver cleanser (clears out inflammation and congestion of the liver and gall bladder) and has those powerful antioxidants to help fight infection and speedup wound healing!! I usually drink 2 cups of dandelion root tea every day to support my liver. It is great to clear out your bile and keep that moving because that's really important! I use traditional medicinals brand dandelion root tea. I have linked it up so you guys can see what it looks like so you can get some yourself!
I know you hear a lot about detoxing. But really it's important to detox the liver and keep your bile flowing well so you don't get gallstones. So what is it that is blocking up that bile? It is that fatty food that you eat. If you're having issues so gassy bloating after you eat fatty foods get yourself some amazing dandelion root tea and let the bile be moved!!!
So it's not just the root that is good for you but the flowers can be used to make wine. The leaves are great in a salad or juiced. Yummy, yummy, yummy full of good nutrients!!
So next time you see that beautiful yellow flower in the fields or okay in your grass. Look at it a little differently it's an amazing weed and it's very very powerful so take time look at the dandelion differently and maybe drink some of that root tea!
Peace and lots of love,
