The benefits of Dandelion Root include purification of the blood, liver cleansing, weight reduction, lower blood pressure, improvement in bowel functions and more. Dandelion Root can be made into a coffee (or tea). The process is simple and can be done at home in a short amount of time. We decided to give it a try, and although it is not the greatest tasting coffee alternative, the health benefits make it worthwhile. Dandelion Root has antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties and supports the digestive system. Dandelion Root coffee is bitter and strong in flavor but it can be sweetened with some honey. Enjoy!
