Medicinal Uses: Dandelion, commonly thought of as a weed, is a very useful medicinal herb and can be found growing wild or purchased in the store. Dandelion as a culinary treat is very beneficial. It is full of vitamins A and C, beta carotine, potassium, with enough iron and copper to keep you healthy. You can eat the leaves, stalk, and flowers as a salad. Dandelion tea is a safe, gentle tonic for digestive issues, constipation, indigestion and fatigue. It can also help strengthen the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, spleen, stomach and intestines and reduces inflammation from hepatitis or cirrhosis.
