Bone Health

An excellent source of calcium, iron, vitamin K, and luteolin, Dandelion Root is a natural antioxidant that can aid in the strengthening of bone, as well as in the prevention of osteoporosis. These compounds also help to alleviate the possibility of calcium deficiency and maintain proper oral health by protecting against tooth decay.

Skin Health

As an antifungal, antimicrobial, and antioxidant, Dandelion Root helps stave off certain skin conditions such as dry skin, ringworm, eczema, and diaper rash. These very same properties can help to combat hormone-related acne and also inhibit the microbial infections that produce pimples and lesions.

Digestive Health

Very high in dietary fiber, Dandelion Root can ensure proper functioning of the digestive system and aid in overall intestinal health. A natural diuretic, it also promotes urination, which is how our body traditionally expels toxins from the system. Together, these conditions may also assist with weight loss efforts, as they can reduce food cravings, satiate appetite, and allow the body to better utilize stored energy.

Healthy Facts

Containing a rich assortment of essential nutrients, such as vitamins A and C, iron, and calcium, Dandelion Root has the power to enhance the functions of several internal systems. By helping to stimulate insulin production, it can reduce blood sugar levels and lower the risk of diabetes. It can lower levels of LDL cholesterol while increasing levels of HDL cholesterol. And as a natural anti-inflammatory, it can fight the premature effects of aging, as well as respiratory infections, vision impairments, and other age-related ailments.

Used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine, Dandelion Root has been praised as far back as the 10th century CE. Many cultures around the world have used it as a centerpiece for tonics, foods, and even wines and beers. Native Americans, too, considered Dandelion to be a prized herb. And they often used it in remedies and ceremonies. Today, it’s produced across many nations within eastern Europe, including Romania, Poland, and Bulgaria. Although, it is also cultivated in areas of the United Kingdom, as well. For those willing to make the hike, it can even be found high up in the Himalayas, where it is gathered for Ayurvedic medicine. Its popularity continues to grow, especially as more high-end Chefs continue to incorporate the plant’s many uses and flavors into their dishes.

If stored correctly, our Dandelion Root has a shelf life of up to 2 years. To maintain its freshness, it is recommended to always reseal the bag after opening it and removing as much air from the bag as possible. Store in room temperature, away from any heat source or sunlight.

Four Stars only because I have nothing to compare it too

Being new to this particular herb I can't really say more than, it was preserved and packaged well.
