Dandelion leaf’s (Taraxacum officinale) nutritional components can be helpful to a number of health issues. It stimulates the function of many glands and organs, particularly the kidneys and the liver. It can be used as a natural diuretic, and it contains the micronutrients potassium, calcium, vitamin A and vitamin C. Dandelion can also aid digestion by increasing the flow of digestive juices, helping absorption. Its ability to increase the elimination of toxins through the liver and kidneys can cleanse the blood and potentially clear the skin as well.
