Dandelion is often regarded as just a weed.
Yards can be lined with those beautiful yellow blooms, especially in the spring. Most people hate to see them in their yard.
But did you know that this herb has healing properties. It's used for canker sores, gallstones, menopausal, and premenstrual symptoms.
Dandelions have extremely high levels of Vitamin A and good levels of C, D and various B vitamins. This herb also packs iron, magnesium, potassium, manganese, and silicon.
Water retention for women that suffer with PMS can be relieved by taking a supplement of this herb (weed). The high levels of potassium in the leaves makes it the only diuretic (about all people taking diuretics have to take a potassium pill) that doesn't deplete the body of potassium.
The components found in the roots and leaves that are responsible for its healing qualities are called sesquiteropene lactones.
This herb is used to treat canker sores. At some point in our life we may get or have had these painful sores. About 50% of Americans get canker sores each year. They form when mouth acids and digestive enzymes eat away the solf tissue of the mouth. Women are twice as likely to get them as men, and usually right before their period. Canker sores go away in a few days but may recur in many people.
