You see this plant’s flower everywhere and many times treat it like a weed. Some have used its flower in a homeopatic remedies for years due to its many medicinal properties. My family has been making a syrop out of it for years. It tastes like honey! I used it a lot prior converting to keto and I rarely get sick if at all. But very few people know about the power of its roots.
How can it help you? Well, it stimulates the production of enzymes (bile) so it is very beneficial for anyone who has digestive problems. Moreover, it detoxifies the liver, helps those prone to allergies, and lowers bad choresterol. Dandelion root is rich in iron, calcium, folic acid, magnesiuma and vitamins A&C.
It may come as a surprise, but scientists from the University of Windsor in Canada have recently discovered that Dandelion Root works better at fighting cancer than chemotherapy. While chemotherapy kills all cells alike – healthy and cancer affected. The dandelion root only attacks the cancer cells. Pamela Ovadje, who is the dandelion tea researcher, has been recognized for her anto cancer work. “The result of her was “eye-opening” and it opened the door for more studies looking at different cell lines “to see that dandelion root extract does induce a selective form of programmed cell death in cancer cells in a very distinct manner.”
You can buy dandelion root tea at most health foos stores or online. But if you were to source it yourself, then try finding this plant far from major roads so it is protected from the modern world enviromental impurities.
