The best natural, herbal multi-vitamin? Well, the answer isn’t in one herb; it is a trio of herbs; alfalfa, dandelion, and kelp. These herbs together make a great general blood builder and tonic for the body. Historically, they have been used together for anemia, endurance, energy, combatting fatigue, reducing leg cramps, pancreas, pituitary gland, senility, thyroid problems, and water retention. They have also been used historically during pregnancy.
Last time, I introduced Alfalfa; the best all-round herb for building wellness. The second herb in our fantastic tonic is Dandelion.
Dandelion, the same plant as you have growing in your yard, is a great herbal boost for your vitality and wellness. Who would think that those weedy, yellow flowers are good for your health? In fact the whole plant is good; the flowers make great May wine, the tender new leaves are great added to your salad and greens as they contain a high amount of calcium, and the root is traditionally used as an herbal remedy.
For your health, dandelion acts as a tonic for your system. It destroys acids in the blood as it purifies your blood. But, it does much more than that. **
- For the skin, historically, it has been used to relieve acne and age spots, boils, dermatitis, reduce eczema and psoriasis outbreaks, general skin problems, and treats warts.
- Natural treatment for bronchitis, tonsillitis, fever, and the flu.
- Aids digestive disorders, constipation (acts like a laxative), and gentle for kids.
- Natural aid for water retention, hypoglycemia, strengthens the kidneys, pancreas, and diabetes.
- Generally strengthens your vitality, energy, endurance, and reduces fatigue without caffeine.
- It is a general liver cleanser, good for the spleen, gall bladder, reduces gall stones, and jaundice.
- Helps fractures to heal faster.
- The nutritive salts are great for anemia treatment.
Dandelion is so rich in minerals; calcium, potassium, iron, and sodium. Vitamins are A, C, and E. There are moderate amounts of phosphorus, manganese, selenium, and silicon. And, there is some B-complex.
I hope you never look at those pesky yellow weeds again and think you don’t need them. They are great little power packs of goodness.
If you missed the 1st herb; alfalfa, make sure to look back and find it. Alfalfa is definitely a keeper. Next time look for the 3rd herb of our tonic trio; kelp.
