Dandelion root acts as mild laxative and helps to soften stool. By improving bile production in the body, this herbal tea also promotes healthy metabolism of fats. This also stimulates your natural appetite and improves digestive health.
Dandelion root has a natural diuretic effect, allowing your liver to more quickly eliminate toxins. It also helps strengthen the immune system, balance blood sugar levels, relieve heartburn and soothe digestive issues.
To make a herbal infusion:
Use 1 heaped teaspoon of the root per cup required.
Place in pot.
Add boiling water.
Allow to infuse for 6- 9 minutes.
Strain into a cup and enjoy.
May be taken up to 4 times per day as part of a cleansing/detox regime.
Best taken without milk or sugar.
If a sweetener is preferred, we recommend our natural Palm Sugar granules. Alternatively, you could try our natural Stevia powder.
