The flowers of dandelions look like chrysanthemums. In Japan they are considered as beautiful! Still in North America we soak lawns in carcinogenic pesticides in order to destroy them. But the fact is dandelion is “hepato-protective,” able of protecting people’s livers from numerous toxic chemical pollutants.
People have used the plant as medicine since old times. Traditionally, the dandelion’s root was a real spring tonic. It works on the liver cleaning up toxins that are accumulated there during the winter.
This remedy can improve your energy as it “betters respiratory functioning at the cellular level.” It is also a natural vitamin supplement. The root has choline, iron, vitamins A, B, C, silica, calcium, and magnesium, all energy providers after long winter months.
Jaundice, gall bladder problems, and hepatitis respond to it, and the dandelion’s root can be used as a tincture, a tea, in capsules, and chewed raw. Besides, it is a standard cure for skin problems like psoriasis, boils, eczema, and acne. It can correct hormone imbalances and lowers cholesterol.
The root works by restoring and decongesting the liver. It does so by means of stimulating the flow of bile – the nature’s own self-curing technique.
Recent scientific study shows dandelion root betters the body’s capability to remove cancer cells. The studies demonstrate possible antioxidant action and anti-tumour activity.
All the mentioned makes the root an excellent herb to begin your spring cleansing cure with. By the way, it is one of the components in the Premium Detox 7 Day Comprehensive Cleansing Program. It is safe for everybody and cheaply acquired. Find plants, which have not been sprayed with different pesticides. The dandelion roots are very powerful when you dug it early in the spring prior to beginning of the new season growth, or in fall when growth has died down.
