The medical properties of dandelion have been recognized since ancient time. Today, scientists have confirmed its health benefits and even discovered that dandelion rot can defeat cancer.
Dandelion root boosts the immune system and can lung, prostate and other cancer types. According to Dr. Carolyn Hamm from the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre in Ontario, Canada, the powerful dandelion root extract effectively treats a cancer type which occurs in the elderly, that is, chronic myelomonocytic leukemia.
John Di Carlo, a 72-year old cancer patient, was sent home by his doctors as they didn’t believe his leukemia can be treated. But, as he stated in an interview on the CBC News, his friends advised him to drink dandelion root tea. That’s when his life turned to better. After only 4 months, his cancer went into remission! Doctors attributed this success to the consumption of the dandelion tea.
A recent research showed that dandelion root extract can quickly treat cancer cells, as in the case of Di Carlo. The affected cells start to disintegrate and the body replaces them with healthy ones.
According to other studies, the anti-cancer benefits of this root can treat liver, colon, breast, prostate, and lung cancer!
Even though the tea made from dandelion root doesn’t have a typical tea taste, it is incredibly healthy and doesn’t cause side-effects like chemo and radiation do. Moreover, the tea only targets the affected cells while boosting the immune system.
Dr. Hamm advises that the dandelion root extract should be used only after a consultation with your doctor.
You can use the extract even if you’re not a cancer patient, because it will boost your health. The extract is also great for diabetics, because its consumption stimulates the production of insulin by the pancreas, and thus regulates blood sugar levels.
Other health benefits of dandelion root
- Helps digestion, detoxifies the body, and cleanses the blood of chemicals and other impurities. According to Dr. Axe, dandelions contain vitamins and minerals that promote liver health and cleanse it from the accumulated toxins and waste.
- Thanks to the high antioxidant and vitamin C content, the dandelion prevents infections, like the bacteria that lead to urinary tract infections. In the case of UTI, the daily consumption of dandelion tea prevents their reoccurrence.
- Being rich in fiber, the dandelion will improve your intestinal health, and reduce the risk of irritable bowel syndrome, heart diseases, and obesity.
- Since it is rich in vitamin A, you only need one cup of dandelion root tea to receive 100% of your recommended daily allowance. This vitamin promotes a healthy vision and prevents premature skin aging.
