Best Way to Consume Dandelion Roots

I always recommend consuming dandelion roots in tea form.  I personally enjoy loose dandelion roots over tea bags, but I also “bag it up” if I am in a hurry.  I have included my favorite brand of raw dandelion roots below.

Dandelion Roots as a Diuretic

Dandelion root is a diuretic, which can potentially help people process waste more quickly and lose weight.  Many people confuse diuretics with laxatives, but diuretics increase waste in the form of urination. This also can improve overall health.

Dandelion root’s diuretic effects also reduce bloat in the form of water weight.  Many women (and men) suffer from excess water retention.  this can be uncomfortable and makes people appear heavier.  Dandelion roots help process the excess water out of the body in the form of urine.  It is important to remain hydrated while consuming dandelion roots.

Dandelion Roots Increase Red Blood Cells

Dandelion roots also impact weight loss by increasing iron and red blood cells.  This helps spread oxygen and fight fatigue.  The increased oxygen can help you perform longer in workouts and help burn excess fat.  Stay motivated and keep on working!


It is important to remember that every individual has a different body chemistry.  As a result, herbal tea can have different effects.  Remember to consult with a healthcare professional prior to attempting Dandelion Root Weight Loss.  Dandelion roots may cause allergic reactions, some of which may become severe.
