Dandelion leaf

Dandelion

Behold the Dandelion, a.k.a Taraxacum officinale, a.k.a the common plant with uncommon pharmacologically active compounds.

Valued since ancient times as a detoxification & weight loss aid, today Dandelion remains a sought after ingredient for it’s ability to minimize the appearance of cellulite and waste eliminating properties . Dandelions are unusually high in vitamins and trace minerals like:

  • Folate, Phosphorus, Zinc, Riboflavin, Magnesium, Iron, Calcium, Potassium, Copper & Manganese
  • Vitamins A, C, E, K & B6

Our friend the Dandelion also contains 4x more beta carotene than broccoli, more protein than spinach and ample dietary fiber. Dandelion is rich in two phospholipids, lecithin & choline, which is important because:

  • They convert to acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter key to healthy mood, learning and memory. Acetylcholine modulates excitability, arousal and reward centers in the brain.
  • Your body relies on acetylcholine for muscle stimulation.
  • Lecithin lowers cholesterol, protects the cardiovascular system and emulsifies fat, which works synergistically with the plant's  high fiber count, making it an effective digestive aid.
