From its deep tap root, deep brown, nearly black on the outer if white plus milky within, the high jagged leaflets rise immediately, reflecting from it to develop a rosette lying close to the ground, each leaf being grooved and constructed so that any rain falling on it is led directly into the center of the rosette, plus thus to the root, which is hence constantly kept well moistened. The highest amount of rain that is directed to the appropriate way to use the source region, but that this agreement would not get enough moisture, the leaves being spread too near the ground to allow water to penetrate. The leaves are shiny and hairless the boundary of individual leaf separated into large serrated teeth, both upright and showing slightly backwards, and these points are themselves formed here plus there on the profound teeth. It is this similarity a bit fanciful canine teeth of a lion (it is generally assumed) gives the plant its most familiar name Dandelion.
Dandelion is most often seen as a pesky weed that takes on lawns, gardens, meadows, and even appears in cracked pavement and sidewalks. It is invasive and ubiquitous. Great for us, it is additionally an exceptional food and herbal remedy that anyone may obtain, develop and put to use. Dandelion is a rich source of beta -carotene, which converts to vitamin A. This flowering bulb is also abundant in vitamin C, tissue, potassium, cast iron, calcium, magnesium, and zinc together with phosphorus.
I didn't want to try tea or tinctures of dandelion root. Any stuff from the health food store, like pills. I am taking it for detoxification. You could certainly make tea with this. Use a French Press if you don't have a tea ball. If you are going to make smoothies, you must let it soak and hydrate first. It's not as bitter tasting as I would have thought, but I do add honey. Also, fruit and yogurt. Arrived very quickly after I placed my order. I've purchased products from Bulk Apothecary before. Always been pleased.
I buy this for health reasons just had my 3rd. CT scan cancer free.
The flavor is full and delicious!
