Why Do Dieters Love Dandelion?

Q: What’s all this I hear about dandelion flowers? I thought they were just weeds growing in my backyard!

A: We all recognize dandelions as the pesky flowers that grow in our backyards, in cracks in the sidewalk and just about everywhere! While they may seem pesky, these delicate yellow blooms have some incredible health benefits.

There may be a lot of recent buzz around dandelion root, but it’s actually nothing new.  In fact, this herbal discovery has been used for over 2,000 years in both traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for internal health and wellness.*

Dieters commonly use dandelion root to help promote healthy digestive function.* Not to mention the root extract is an excellent source of essential nutrients such as beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E, fiber and trace minerals.

Q: How can I incorporate dandelion into my diet?

A: Dandelion root comes in unflavored  liquid  and  capsule  form, but  dandelion root tea  is the most popular option.

Dandelion root tea has a naturally sweet and slightly bitter taste. To help cut the bitterness, add a natural sweetener such as  stevia,  agave nectar, or  raw honey.
