The dandelion is a yellow, flowering plant that can be seen just about anywhere.
They may be unsightly and unwanted in your front yard – but did you know they (both the root and the greens from dandelions) are full of beneficial nutrients and can help improve your health?! Some say that dandelions can help with liver, gallbladder, and bile ducts problems. It is used today as a diuretic and for minor digestive problems.
Some people are allergic to it though, so be careful! In this video, we see, Qwina, a beagle, stopping her walk to take time to smell the flowers! Then she eats some! If they are good enough for her, they are good enough for us – right?! The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says there is little evidence of the benefits of dandelion – so, you decide if you and your dog are going to give it a try!
