The leaves of dandelion are mineral-rich. Dandelion is used to help the kidneys cleanse, and to regulate fluid balance. This cleansing action is used in the treatment of skin conditions such as acne, rosacea and eczema.
Preliminary research suggests that dandelion may help improve liver and gallbladder function. Increased liver function flushes toxins and excess water. Many teatoxes include dandelion because of its detoxing properties. Dr. Nesheiwat says it may actually aid in burning more fat. “It helps burn calories by increasing the process of breaking down the fat in the liver,” she says. Roots take longer to infuse than the leaves, so steeping this tea for slightly longer may be a good idea.
