Don’t just toss those pesky weeds!
Did you know dandelions can be harvested right along with your vegetables, used from root to flower to promote hormone balance and overall health?
For centuries these “weeds” have been used for their medicinal properties, aiding in the relief of digestive issues, constipation, acne, immune conditions, and overall detoxification of the body.
Some of our favorite benefits of dandelion greens include:
- Inflammation reduction
- Blood sugar control
- Loaded with antioxidants
- Powerful aide in weight management
- Promotes holistic detoxification and a healthy liver
These yummy, bitter plants are pack with tons of rich vitamins, minerals and fiber, boosting gut health and supporting regular bowel movements. These leaves are loaded with vitamin A, C and K, vitamin E and folate.
The fiber found in the roots of dandelions is a carbohydrate known as inulin. This type of carbohydrate is known for feeding the ‘prebiotics’ found in the gut to help improve digestive health and strengthen the immune system.
How to use Dandelion Greens
Adding in a daily dose of dandelion can be easy!
Dandelion greens can be eaten raw or cooked in a variety in different dishes for a savory, bitter flavor.
Dandelion root can be easily dried and used for tea. A hot cup a dandelion tea has so many benefits for women with PCOS.
If you don’t have access to these wild grown weeds you can easily pick up a box of dandelion tea from your local health for store.
Often times fresh dandelion greens can be found in the organic produce section of your local grocer.
Give the greens a try in a fresh salad or cook them down in a simple stir fry.
The Hormone Breakdown
The beta-carotene and polyphenolic found in dandelions are extremely powerful antioxidants that help reduce oxidative stress as well as reduce the signs of aging.
Two active compound found in all parts of the dandelion plant can help with blood sugar control. Chicoric and chlorogenic acid support insulin secretion while regulating glucose absorption helping to keep blood sugar levels stable.
