Who doesn't want an edible front yard?

Many consider dandelions persistent weeds, but they are magic at your fingertips!

Dandelions have numerous benefits. They contain nutrients vital to living your healthiest life, such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, calcium, iron, and potassium. These small but mighty plants are a beautiful example of a natural immune booster! Rather than eradicating dandelions from your lawn, try consuming them! They are also detoxifiers for your body. Dandelions help flush toxins, aid your kidneys in functioning more efficiently, and are great digestive enzymes.

Due to their precious medical nature, dandelions have been used in medicine for thousands of years, including Chinese traditional medicine. They were even purposely brought over on the Mayflower because of all their fantastic bodily benefits.

Dandelions are proven to reduce inflammation, low cholesterol, and keep blood sugar in check; who wouldn't like all of those things?! Not only do dandelions offer all of these beautiful qualities, but you also can use each part of them. Mountsinai.org states that each area of a dandelion offers a different benefit: "Dandelion leaves act as a diuretic, increasing the amount of urine your body makes. The leaves are used to stimulate the appetite and help digestion. Dandelion flower has antioxidant properties. Dandelion may also help improve the immune system. Herbalists use dandelion root to detoxify the liver and gallbladder, and dandelion leaves to help kidney function."

Dandelions are versatile healers right outside your doorstep for free! Instead of removing them or spraying them with harmful pesticides, consider picking a few up and seeing the benefits for yourself. The Earth provides so many incredible ways to incorporate nature into our health. Dandelions are the perfect opportunity for you to experience this magical phenomenon for yourself!
