2. Aids Digestion
Drinking dandelion tea with your meals is an excellent way to improve digestion. The digestive system contains trillions of bacteria living in the intestines. These microbiomes are responsible for a wide variety of metabolic functions, and they are sensitive to the foods we eat and play a significant role in digestion.
People with digestive issues may find that they start to develop allergies to certain foods. For example, people with celiac disease that eat gluten may see they develop symptoms of bloating and gas that cause pain and discomfort.
Drinking dandelion tea after your meal can help soothe the signs of digestive inflammation associated with celiac disease, Crohn’s, and a leaky gut. Practitioners of traditional medicine understand the value of dandelion tea and use both the roots and the greens in their preparations.
Drinking dandelions tea reduces levels of acidity in the gastrointestinal system, providing a hospitable environment for your microbiomes, allowing them to absorb more vitamins and minerals from your food while breaking down proteins, fats and carbs more efficiently.
