The many health benefits of dandelions – an overview

Dandelions have an excellent reputation as a detoxifier, blood cleanser, stimulant and digestive aid. They act as a liver tonic, removing toxins whilst stimulating the kidneys to ensure that toxins are rapidly eliminated. Bile is cleared out, promoting better digestion and discouraging the formation of gallstones. Whilst there haven’t been many clear and concise studies carried out on the health benefits of dandelions (probably because there isn’t any money in things that grow freely!)… traditional cultures including the North Native Americans and the European Celts successfully used these prolific wild plants for a myriad of different health benefits.
