According to the Weed Foragers Handbook, the humble Dandelion is one the most nutritious weed known to humankind. Stem, leaf, flower, and roots, while pretty bitter tasting, are completely edible.
Bitter plants are much more likely to be highly nutritious, as phytonutrients have a bitter, sour, or astringent taste. Since bitterness has largely been bred out of commercially available food due to consumer preference for everything bland and sweet, we're losing out on important nutrition and natural body stimulants. Bitterness modulates hunger, is vital for liver health and encourages our bodies largest organ to produce bile, needed for digestion and nutrient availability.
Dandelion leaf extract tones the skin, supports detoxification, and inhibits elastin degradation.
