Dandelion, also known as Taraxacum officinale, is a plant commonly regarded as a weed known to have many health benefits. Many parts of the dandelion plant are edible, including the roots, leaves, seeds and flowers. Both the root and greens are packed with health-promoting properties and can be used to make everything from dandelion tea to super-nutritious salads.
Dandelion is said to have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties, and known to help treat a wide range of medical conditions including arthritis, liver disease, diabetes, obesity, and even cancer.
May Help Kill Cancer Cells: A number of studies have found that dandelion root may be useful in the prevention and treatment of certain types of cancer, including liver cancer, leukemia, pancreatic cancer, breast cancer, esophageal cancer and prostate cancer.
Can Help Reduce Cholesterol and High Blood Pressure: Dandelion root has been shown to help reduce cholesterol levels.
Rich in Antioxidants: Studies show that dandelion root is especially high in antioxidants, such as beta-carotene, polyphenols, coumarins and hydroxycinnamic acid derivatives — which may account for its many potent health benefits since this allows it to fight free radicals. Free radicals are compounds that form in your body as a result of things like stress, pollution and a poor diet. Over time, the accumulation of free radicals can lead to cell damage and chronic disease. Antioxidants can help neutralize these harmful compounds and have been shown to reduce the risk of conditions like heart disease and cancer.
Supports Liver and Kidney Health: From filtering toxins to metabolizing drugs, the liver is essential to many aspects of health. Dandelion root benefits your liver, helping protect it from oxidative stress and keeping it working effectively.
Supports Immune System and Fights Bacteria: In addition to its many other health benefits, dandelion root also possesses antimicrobial and antiviral properties that can help stop the growth of disease-causing bacteria and pathogens.
Strengthens Bones: Taraxacum officinale is a great source of vitamin K, an important nutrient that plays a key role in bone health. This essential vitamin increases levels of a specific protein needed to help build strong bones, which is exactly why lower intakes of vitamin K have been linked to an increased risk of fractures and reduced bone density. Dandelion also contains calcium, which forms the structure of the bones and teeth to help keep them strong.
Promotes Skin Health: Each serving of dandelion supplies a hearty dose of antioxidants, which can protect skin cells against damage to slow signs of aging and keep you looking (and feeling) your best.
High in Fiber: Dandelion roots are a great source of fiber and are especially rich in a type of soluble fiber known as inulin. Fiber has been associated with several health benefits, especially when it comes to regulating blood sugar levels. Because fiber moves through the body undigested, it helps slow the absorption of sugar in the bloodstream, which can help improve long-term blood sugar control. In addition to maintaining steady blood sugar levels, fiber can also protect against a multitude of digestive issues, including constipation, stomach pains, hemorrhoids, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and stomach ulcers.
