Description

Dandelion Root Tea takes the idea of a weed being a nuisance and turns it on its head. Rather than the bane of gardeners the world over, it is a delicious, health beneficial infusion teeming with character and charm.

When brewed, this wholesome delight boasts grassy, earthy notes with a refreshing aftertaste. We pack it fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory, thus ensuring quality and consistency.

It’s worth noting, too, that Dandelion Root Tea is 100% void of caffeine. This is a stimulating chemical compound that famously gets us out of bed in the morning.

Some people, however, struggle with its effects or may simply want to cut down on their intake. This is where Dandelion Root Tea comes in - while at the same time serving as a diuretic and aiding digestion.

What are Dandelions?

Dandelion (Taraxacum) is a large genus of flowering plants belonging to the Asteraceae family. Its name comes from the French phrase, “dent de lion,” which means “lion’s tooth.” This refers to the toothed shape of the leaves that surround the bottom of the plant’s stem. It grows up to 30cm tall, developing miniature yellow flowers called ray florets.

As Dandelions mature, their flowers develop into “blowballs” (sometimes called “clocks” in both British and American English). These consist of a multitude of single-seeded fruits called achenes, which disperse themselves at distances as far as five miles.

The history of Dandelion’s use in medicine, meanwhile, dates back to Arabia during the tenth and eleventh centuries.

The root of the plant, in particular, has long been held in high regard. Numerous Native American communities consumed them to treat ailments, such as the Cherokee, who believed they relieved anxiety.

The Iroquois chewed this root to allay tooth pain, while several Canadian First Nations tribes ate it to alleviate stomach pains. Whatever your reason for drinking Dandelion Root Tea, you’ve decided well.

Health Benefits of Dandelion Root Tea

Experts suggest that this Tea can stimulate digestion, increase bile flow and act as a mild laxative. It also, according to preliminary research, helps women with urinary tract infections (URI).

Most famous of all is the fact that it reportedly detoxifies the liver of harmful toxins such as leftover alcohol traces. In other words, this is an example of a Detox Tea.

The evidence comes from a study published in the Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology. It established that Dandelion Benefits significantly increased a detoxifying enzyme found in a control group of volunteers.

Though more proof needs to surface before we endorse it for such a purpose, the findings appear promising. But that’s not all on offer here.

Dandelion Root Tea also contains a wealth of vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants. This includes (but is not limited to) Vitamins A, B, C and D, as well as Iron, Potassium and zinc.

These chemical compounds combined can neutralise free radicals in the body. The result is that it ultimately reduces the risk of developing a multitude of chronic conditions.
