Five Amazing Superfood Herbs You Must Not Do Without
Check out this article’s featured image above…it is the bane of lawn care enthusiasts everywhere! And, it is also a favorite “weed” for kids who love to blow the seeds! Despite what might be a reputation as a noxious and undesirable lawn weed, the dandelion is actually an amazing superfood! Virtually every part of the dandelion is edible or useful as a healing medicinal.
The dandelion root is known to have beneficial effects on the liver and pancreas. It helps by straining and removing toxins and wastes from the bloodstream. This fact is historically documented in both Asian and American medicine. The bitter dandelion leaves are said to stimulate digestion, which is one reason you often see this recommended as a “must have” fresh salad ingredient.
If you regularly eat typical processed foods, dandelions are a nutritional powerhouse that you should include in your diet. Seriously, how many among us are able to eat 100% organic and natural foods, as we would often prefer to do? It’s tough, so we can use all the added supplementation and assistance from mother nature’s super market that we can get.
Other known uses for dandelion include:
- loss of appetite
- upset stomach & gas
- joint pain
- muscle aches
- increase urine production
- skin toner
- blood tonic
- treating infections
The most common ways to add dandelions to your daily diet include using it for salad greens, as an ingredient in soups, and in the preparation of herbal teas. Some use the roasted root as a coffee substitute.
