Dandelion Health Benefits
Helps to Relieve Inflammation in the Body
Dandelion contains essential fatty acids and phytonutrients that can reduce swelling and inflammation throughout the body. The greens inhibit interleukins and other immune molecules that trigger the inflammation; it also controls inflammation by supressing COX-2 enzymes-the same molecules that non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs target. Dandelion greens act to reduce swelling that is the result of edema in soft tissue. The anti-inflammatory substances in dandelion can reduce pain and inflammation of fibroids as well.
