More Information

Dandelion was first mentioned in the 10th and 11th centuries by Arabian physicians who used this herb as a leaf vegetable. Originally native to Europe and Asia, dandelion was imported to North America as a spring green. Its nutrients include bitter taraxacins, sitosterol, stigmasterol, alpha and beta carotene, cafeic acid, mucilage, and potassium. It also contains significant levels of vitamin A, C, D, and B complex as well as iron, magnesium, zinc, manganese, copper, choline, calcium, boron, and silicon.

The root is often used on its own or in a blend to make tea and, when roasted, a delightful, caffeine-free substitute for coffee.
