- I have recently learned a great deal about Dandelions and there many benefits to our skin. I started looking for something that was good for my liver, this is where my dandelion craze took off. Dandelions have limited but positive research and indicate they may reduce certain types of Cancer one being liver Cancer. They have antioxidant capabilities . Antioxidants are molecules that neutralize the negative effects of free radicals in your body. They are rich in beta-carotene & polyphenolic compounds , that can prevent aging and certain diseases . Dandelions may also be effective in reducing inflammation . A study in mice with artificially induced inflammatitory lung disease showed a significant rededuction when receiving dandelion . Dandelion’s are full of vitamins A, C, K, and small amount of B. So just these known facts made me want to dive in further. There is so much more to this plant. Beneficial oils along with bees wax makes an awesome salve. Harvesting Dandelion’s can be a challenge at times Because you have to find land that has not been sprayed with chemicals, then you only have a small window of time to harvest because of their short growing season. Depending on the area you live in. Some areas have spring and fall. What an amazing so called “weed” I have many uses for this plant. Follow me for recipies and more information.
