Drinking dandelion tea may enhance liver function and detox the body.
According to the National Centre for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, researchers found the dandelion herb may help enhance the way the organs function. Dandelion tea can help with stomach aches, gallstones, joint pain and may protect bones as well.
“Dandelion tea or stems are also good vitamin C foods, which helps with mineral absorption, reduces inflammation and prevents the development of disease,” author Dr. Josh Axe wrote. It may also break down kidney stones, help with infections and may help regulate the blood.
Dandelion root has a compound called taraxacerin. This property helps the liver and the body detoxify more efficiently.
