The benefits of Dandelion
Dandelion is often overlooked as just a wild weed. Sure it looks pretty but most don’t pay any attention to it save for it pulling it out of their front yards. However, dandelion is actually a potent herb that has beneficial properties in its leaves, flowers, and roots, which can result in wonderful benefits for skin and hair care, along with for overall health.
What does Dandelion do to your body?
Dandelion is used in acne treatments. This is due to its anti-inflammatory, antifungal, germicidal, and antimicrobial properties. It is also a natural stimulant, diuretic, and detoxifier which can help regulate the balance of hormones. It also increases sweating and causes pores to widen resulting in the flushing out of toxins. All of these properties work together to clear skin of acne, breakouts, and other bacterial or inflammatory skin conditions.
Dandelion has a high content of beta-carotene which is converted into vitamin A. Also rich in vitamins C, E, K, and B complex as well as other antioxidants, it is extremely helpful in reversing signs of ageing. It reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. It also helps tone and firm up sagging skin. The vitamin C also helps reduce the appearance of scars.
Being rich in minerals like choline, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, biotin, and calcium makes dandelion extremely good for hair follicles and healthy hair growth. They help stimulate growth and make hair stronger as these are key components for healthy, rich and luscious hair. Dandelion also helps balance sebum production and hence rids the scalp of excess oil reducing greasiness in hair.
The high iron content also helps combat scalp conditions like dandruff. It helps minimize and regulate dandruff, helping reduce the flakiness and itchiness associated with this condition. Iron is an extremely important mineral in promoting healthy scalp and hair. It not only nourishes and protects your scalp, it also protects and strengthens your hair to ensure a reduction in hair loss.
