With everyone focused on health-conscious New Years resolutions, we thought we would share one of our lesser-known detox secrets. Instead of prepackaged detox supplements, try opting for dandelion, a natural detoxifier.

More than a pesky weed, dandelion (specifically its leaves) are said to clean the liver, blood and kidneys to rid the body of unnecessary sugars, toxins and other elements that can slow and hinder bodily functions. When the liver is stressed and packed with harmful elements, it can greatly affect how the body performs in terms of sleep, energy, weight gain and strength. Whether you choose to eat or drink the roots or leaves, this digestion aid also deposits high amounts of vital vitamins, such as vitamins A and B, and trace minerals like calcium, iron and potassium. 

You can find dandelion supplements and tea in any health food or vitaminn store. Have you tried dandelion before?
