How dandelion helps health

1. Maintains proper liver function. Dandelion root is known to prevent liver hemorrhaging, but it also improves blood purity and the flow of bile, which the liver manages and plays a role in.

2. Fights acne and eczema. Have a case of bad acne? Drinking dandelion juice acts as a stimulant, detoxifier, diuretic and antioxidant that helps to fight off toxins which often result from out-of-balance hormones. The toxins are ultimately sweat out through the skin and because of the juice's stimulating ability, pores are widened to help ease the process. Dandelion sap may also be used topically.

Furthermore, because its sap is highly alkaline and has germ-fighting properties, it's touted as an ideal way to manage a variety of skin conditions including general itching, eczema and ringworm.

3. Improve eye health. The American Optometric Association advises people consume at least 12 milligrams combined of lutein and zeaxanthin daily to help lowers the risk of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (3). Dandelion greens contain both of these nutrients. In fact, just one cup exceeds the American Optometric Association's recommendation to maintain eye health, containing 15 milligrams of lutein and zeaxanthin.

4. Weight loss aid. Consuming dandelion greens is ideal for those trying to shed a few pounds. Not only are they low in calories, but they act as a diuretic, causing water weight to be omitted through urination in a safe manner.

The wine is supposed to be very mild. You can consume all parts of the plants while the flowers are still yellow or sooner.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?

Yes, I read where the sooner the better (young plant), after flowering it tastes bitter.
