Health Benefits of Dandelion Root

Most people think of dandelions as pesky weeds, but these hard-to-get-rid-of plants offer humans many healthy nutritional benefits. Dandelion root has been used for many centuries for medicinal purposes such as treating fevers, digestive disorders, skin problems, bloating and breast ailments. Dandelion contain rich amounts of vitamin A, B-complex, C and D as well as high levels of minerals such as copper, calcium, zinc potassium, iron, boron, silicon, choline and manganese.  Dandelion root, the most powerful part of the plant, stimulates appetite, treats minor digestive problems and naturopathic doctors use it to help detoxify the gallbladder and liver. It has also shown to act as a diuretic, flushing the body of excess water. Experts believe that dandelion root has the ability to help bile flow, thus increasing appetite. It has been used in juice form to treat constipation, relieve bloating and treat rheumatism. Dandelion root is also used for purifying the blood, helping to remove harmful toxins from the kidneys and liver. Studies done of dandelion show that this plant may help treat respiratory disorders such as bronchitis and pneumonia and is beneficial to the stomach, pancreas, kidneys, spleen and other bodily organs for general good health. It is also recommended for treating tonsillitis, tinnitus, abscesses, osteoporosis, boils, anemia, hepatitis, warts, cirrhosis and breast tumors.  Because dandelion has high levels of boron, this mineral can help prevent osteoporosis. Boron raises estrogen levels, which help keep bones healthy. Dandelion also contains high-levels of calcium for additional support of bones.
