Dandelion is a family of flowering plants that grow in many parts of the world. They’re also known as Taraxacum spp., though Taraxacum officinale is the most common species. You may be most familiar with dandelion as a stubborn weed that never seems to leave your lawn or garden.
However, in traditional herbal medicine practices, dandelion is revered for its wide array of medicinal properties.
For centuries, they’ve been used to treat a myriad of physical ailments, including cancer, acne, liver disease, and digestive disorders.
From root to flower, dandelion is a highly nutritious plant, loaded with vitamins, minerals, and fiber.
Dandelion greens can be eaten cooked or raw and serve as an excellent source of vitamins A, C, and K. They also contain vitamin E, folate, and small amounts of other B vitamins.
What’s more, dandelion greens provide a substantial amount of several minerals, including iron, calcium, magnesium and potassium.
