How It Works
Native to Europe and naturalized in North America, this member of the sunflower family derives its name from the French dents de lion, which means "teeth of the lion." Although gardeners consider it a nuisance, herbalists consider the plant one of the most nutrient-rich plants for the urinary and glandular systems. Early pioneers would eagerly await the first spouts of dandelion to eat as a fresh vegetable and internal cleansing agent after a long winter. The whole plant is edible. The flowers are used to make wine, the leaves can be boiled like spinach or added raw to salads, and the roots are used as a vegetable and coffee substitutes. The herb is a source of potassium, sodium, phosphorus and iron. The leaves are a richer source of vitamin A than carrots and contain some amounts of vitamins B, C and D.
