Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) has been a staple in the traditional medicines of Russia, India, China, Turkey, North America, and Mexico for centuries. Commonly associated with its diuretic properties, dandelion root is believed to support kidney function and promote urine production, aiding in the elimination of excess fluids from the body.

Whether you see it as a wish-upon flower or a weed to banish from your lawn, the humble dandelion offers more than meets the eye. Every part of the dandelion plant is edible, with high-end restaurants using the greens in salads, home aficionados making wine from the flowers, and companies making a coffee substitute from the roots.

Dandelions boast a full array of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, including vitamins A, C, and K, iron, calcium, and potassium. Some people use it for digestive issues, as it’s believed to support healthy digestion and liver function.
