    Dandelion Tea

    Hope you enjoy the aromatic blend of dandelion and honey tea.
    I was just reading about the source of vitamin A. The roots are rich in trace minerals-zinc, copper, manganese, cobalt, boron, and molybdenum. The leaves rank higher in calcium, iron, magnesium, and fiber than either spinach or broccoli. The flowers are a substantial source of lecithin which is used for a preventative medicine for cirrhosis of the liver and aids in the reduction of cholesterol.
    It also is an aid to indigestion and constipation and is natures diuretic without depleting potassium.
    It was used in beer to cleanse heavy metals by the English. The Italian women used them in soup to fight off anemia. It was used in the Depression in with salads. It wasn't until the 1960's that it was dubbed a weed by lawn care companies.
