Dandelion’s nutrient concentration makes it one of the world’s best plants for improving inner health. Used as a juice, extract and most typically as tea, Dandelion root helps support digestive health, hormonal balance, and beauty of the skin.
Dandelion is one of the most familiar spring cleansing herbs, especially useful for people with chronic skin problems. Rich in vitamins and minerals, Dandelion root helps the body dispose of unwanted skin bacteria. Vitamin C in it speeds up the healing process, thus reducing the visibility of scars and red inflammation that often accompanies acne. It also stimulates digestion, supports the liver and can help the body process toxins internally rather than pushing them out through the skin, which can lead to breakouts.
Rich in antioxidants, Dandelion extract can provide anti-ageing benefits, thus reducing the appearance of fine lines, age spots and wrinkles around the eyes and lips. Besides nourishing the skin, this herb helps tone and firm up sagging and unbalanced skin promoting overall health.
