Not only are dandelions nutritious, but they offer many health benefits as well. The powerful antioxidants in dandelion help neutralize free radicals, and protect against cell damage and oxidative stress. Polyphenols, another type of antioxidant, may reduce inflammation as well.

 Although often referred to as a weed, the fact is that there are dozens of uses for dandelions. Dandelion medicinal uses came about centuries ago, as did their use as a food source. In their native countries of origin, dandelions have a lengthy history and have been used by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and in traditional Chinese medicine for over a thousand years. The name dandelion is derived from the French “dent de lion” meaning “lion’s tooth,” a reference to serrated leaves. Dandelion leaves may have a slight laxative effect and may also improve digestion. Dandelion root may be used to treat issues associated with the liver, kidneys, and gallbladder. Dandelion root benefits are numerous, and they have been used for centuries to treat gastrointestinal ailments. Fiber-rich, dandelion has been shown to reduce constipation and support bowel regularity, which may mean it can be used to treat other digestive ailments such as hemorrhoids and diverticulitis.
