Benefits of Dandelion Tea

I haven’t tried it yet, but I have read that there are a lot of benefits to this tea. Here are three that I repeatedly came across.

It Reduces Water Weight. If you’re feeling bloated dandelion tea may help by increasing urine output and flow. And this will also allow your liver to eliminate toxins.

It Could Promote Liver Health. The role of our liver is to produce bile (which helps enzymes in the body break down fats into fatty acids) and also to filter and detoxify our blood. “The vitamins and nutrients present in dandelions help in cleansing and maintaining the proper functioning of our liver,” says Dr. Ritika Samaddar.

Dandelion Tea May Soothe Digestive Ailments. Dandelion tea helps with mineral absorption and soothes the stomach lining,” says Dr. Manoj K. Ahuja, Fortis Hospitals.

Now all I have to do is find some dandelions and make the tea.

Dandelions, Dandelion Tea

Dandelions are one of the first flowers (or weeds) to appear. The big ones I think are kind of pretty. I guess the thing that most people dislike about them is how they tend to take over a lawn and choke out the grass. But I have heard that they have some benefits. You can make tea out of them.

How to make Dandelion Tea

First, make sure the Dandelions aren’t treated with chemicals.

Wash flowers and leaves, then steep in hot water for 15-20 minutes.
