Dandelion is used to maintain proper liver function, which comes in handy if you’re using prescription medication which has side effects involving the liver. It is also commonly used as a coffee replacement/substitute.
Dandelion also contains vitamins A, C, D, B Complex, iron, magnesium, zinc, potassium, manganese, choline, calcium and boron. Due to being a diuretic with anti water retention properties, this tea is also good against constipation, promotes healthy bacteria in the digestive tract, and should be consumed about three times daily to aid with the above.
Drinking tea, specifically dandelion tea, can easily be one of the most relaxing parts of your day. If you have had a stressful day, sitting back with a warm cup of tea can help you take a deep breath and begin to unwind. Conversely, beginning your day with a cup of tea can encourage you to get up and start your day on a positive note.
