Can we really use herbs and even weeds for natural detox? What is a weed to someone, can mean nature's wonder herb to someone else. Chances are that you have heard of this weed and that the herb can be an effective remedy for several health conditions including acting as a natural detox for the body. Not just affordable, its safety aspects make it recommendable even during pregnancy (for iron and not for detoxing) - here comes dandelion.

Dandelion is so rich in vitamins and minerals that it can be used for the same reasons for which you use multivitamin and mineral supplements - for complete health maintenance of the whole body. You could depend on it for the amazing numbers of essential nutrients it contains: vitamins A, C and K, Choline, B-complex, iron, silicon, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, phosphorus and copper. Healthy and fit eaters would go for the leaves and make salads.

Use dandelion for a liver detox and repair any hormonal imbalance. Hormone metabolism is one of the many properties of the liver and this is because of this fact. Once your liver is in good health, you can cope with menopausal symptoms, PMS and irregularity of menstrual cycles.

The diuretic properties of dandelion helps in a detox diet for losing weight, Its mode of action does not have anything to do with the intrinsic reason for weight gain, but it can help in effective weight loss without exhausting the critical potassium level of the body.

If weight gain is due to issues related to improper digestion, then dandelion could handle the problem. With the improvement of bile production by the gall bladder, it also helps in regularizing bowel movement. In case this is the purpose for your use, take it for a couple of months for regularizing the functioning of your gall bladder and liver, but remember to slow down its usage with time. This weed also stimulates the natural actions and secretions of the digestive system such as with indigestion. It puts back your digestive organs back on track without much effort from your side. Dandelion is especially recommended for people who face problems in digesting fat, as their bile production is not up to the mark.

In case you are allergic to dandelion or you are suffering from inflammation of the gall bladder, intestinal blockage or obstruction in the bile duct do not use it to detox. 250 to 500 mg thrice a day with meals is the suggested dose for adults. Consult a physician when starting a new supplement. Nature offers several excellent options for us to follow a healthy detox diet.
