Folk medicine claims the dandelion plant is a powerful healer, used to purify the blood, address digestion-related problems, and prevent piles and gallstones, among other maladies. Traditional herbal medicine practices use dandelion for their diuretic effect used to rid the body of excess fluid, which can lead to lowered blood pressure.
Dandelion leaf is super high in vitamin K, which is an important for strengthening bones, but it also gives the body a healthy dose of vitamin A as an antioxidant carotenoid, which is particularly good for the skin, mucous membranes and vision.
