Roasted Dandelion Root Overview
Dandelions are unique plants that are found all over the world. Many people view dandelions as a nuisance weed, and they overlook the potential benefits of this powerful plant. There are two primary ways to procure dandelion root. You can either harvest dandelion roots and roast them yourself, or you can purchase them online. Roasted Dandelion Root has been used for hundreds of years to improve digestion.
Making Roasted Dandelion Root
You can pick dandelions in the wild and roast the roots yourself by baking them in your oven. Dandelions are easily found all over the world, and they are fairly easy to harvest. It is important to verify that the area has not been treated with chemicals. After picking the dandelions, you should separate the roots, rinse them, and then place them on a baking sheet. You will then need to roast the roots in your oven. I recommend baking them at 250° for 25 minutes. You can bake them longer for bolder flavor.
Purchase Roasted Dandelion Root
It is very easy and fairly inexpensive to purchase Dandelion Root. My favorite brand is Starwest Botanicals. I have included the link above for a one pound package. These roots are sourced from Croatia and are certified organic. They have already been cut and sifted and are ready to make tea.
Roasted Dandelion Root is a Diuretic
Dandelion Root is a natural diuretic, which is different from a laxative. That means that it helps increase urination. Increased urination boosts overall health by helping your body eliminate waste. You can read more about this on my Dandelion Root Diuretic post.
Consuming this Root may also lead to weight loss. The improved digestion experienced after ingesting dandelion roots helps your body eliminate useless waste. You can read more about this subject on my Dandelion Root Weight Loss post.
