Dandelion contains all of the following nutrients: calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, potassium, selenium, zinc, vitamins B1, B2 and B3 as well as vitamin C. It also contains beta-carotene and tannins, which boosts its antioxidant properties.
By stimulating urination, dandelion tea works as a natural diuretic. Because dandelion tea contains significant amounts of potassium, any that is lost in urination is replaced by drinking dandelion tea.
For Liver Problems:
Drinking dandelion root tea helps to eliminate stress on the liver and encourage healing of damaged tissues caused by alcohol liver disease and chronic hepatitis. Dandelion helps to cleans the blood and liver, and increase bile production.
