Kintra Foods has long espoused the benefits of the humble dandelion. Established in 1962, Symingtons Dandelion Tea was our first product. Since then our Dandelion range has expanded to include Roasted Dandelion and Dandy Chai – both teas are available as tea bags and loose leaf in jars.
Recently, an article in Australian Natural health discussed the various benefits of Dandelion. A small excerpt is below but you can Read the full Article here.
Although it is little used in Western medicine, the dandelion plant (Taraxacum officinale) is rich in vitamins, is believed to be nature’s richest green vegetable source of beta-carotene and is packed with iron, calcium, phosphorous, magnesium and sodium. With powerful diuretic and liver-cleansing properties (as well as a great source of ‘wishful’ fun for children), this universal herb has been a staple of traditional herbal medicine for centuries.
…roots of the dandelion have long been used in tonics and liver cures to treat skin conditions and given that it stimulates bile production and assists in ridding toxins out of the body, also makes it an excellent natural booster to our immune system.
Kintra Foods Dandelion Teas make a great substitute for your morning coffee but there are many other uses for this tasty beverage. Take a look at our recipe section for more great ideas on how to get this liver loving plant into your daily diet.
