Dandelion is a powerhouse of nutrition and antioxidants, including beta-carotene and polyphenols, that detoxifies the body. Dandelion greens are an excellent source of vitamins A, C and K. They also contain vitamin E, folate and small amounts of other B vitamins and provide a substantial amount of several minerals, including iron, calcium, magnesium and potassium. Dandelion root is rich in the carbohydrate inulin, which is a type of soluble fiber found in plants that supports the growth and maintenance of a healthy bacterial flora in the intestinal tract.
Dandelion helps to regulate blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure. It has protective effects for the liver and supports healthy digestion and elimination. Some research indicates that dandelion may have antimicrobial and antiviral properties, which could support the body’s ability to fight infection. Several test-tube studies found that dandelion extract significantly reduced the ability of viruses to replicate.
Parboil dried dandelion in boiling water for 5 -10 minutes before use. Rinse. Simmer in water for 5 minutes and pour over green or other teas or enjoy its mildly bitter flavor plain or sweetened with honey.
Dandelion and dandelion tea may be applied topically to reduce signs of skin aging. One test-tube study showed that dandelion root extract increased the generation of new skin cells, which could slow the aging process. Additional research indicates that dandelion extract may reduce skin inflammation and irritation while also increasing hydration and collagen production. This may be useful in preventing and treating certain types of acne.
