When you hear the word "dandelion," do you only imagine a pernicious weed that takes over your yard and is hard to eradicate? If so, it's time to reconsider! The humble dandelion possesses remarkable, health-promoting properties. Rich in Vitamins A, B, C, and D, dandelions have traditionally been used for their diuretic properties to help detoxify the liver (it stimulates bile production, which carries away toxins for elimination), and Chinese and First Nations peoples often used them as a treatment for digestive problems.
Dandelions are used to help with gallstones, muscle aches, indigestion, constipation, and flatulence, and can also be beneficial in treating diabetes, rheumatic conditions, stiff joints, and eczema. It's time to give this healthy "weed" another chance, in the form of St. Francis Farm's supplemental capsules or tincture, which use a cold percolation extraction process to preserves the vitality and potency of the pure plant materials.
