Spinach and kale are fantastic for you, but why not try something new for a change? Dandelion greens are an edible wild green that has major benefits for your liver. Dandelion greens help the liver work at its full potential and are a great source of Vitamins A, C, D, B vitamins, and the greens are chock-full of minerals such as iron, potassium, zinc, and magnesium.
Dandelion greens are used by herbalists and practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine to treat liver disease, kidney problems, inflammation, and water weight gain. Dandelion greens have a naturally bitter flavor which is one sign they’re so beneficial for the liver.
How to Use:
To use dandelion greens in your daily routine, just add them to a smoothie or salad in place of kale or spinach. Always buy them organic when you can and never use them wild (such as fresh from a field) so you can avoid the potential risk of taking in fertilizers and chemicals sprayed out wild greens.
