What is Dandelion
Dandelion is a rich source of vitamins A, B complex, C, and D, as well as minerals such as iron, potassium, and zinc. Its leaves are often used to add flavor to salads, sandwiches, and teas. The roots can be found in some coffee substitutes, and the flowers are used to make certain wines.
In traditional medicine, dandelion roots and leaves were used to treat liver problems. Native Americans also used dandelion decoctions (liquid made by boiling down the herb in water) to treat kidney disease, swelling, skin problems, heartburn, and stomach upset. Chinese medicinal practitioners traditionally used dandelion to treat digestive disorders, appendicitis, and breast problems (such as inflammation or lack of milk flow). In Europe, herbalists incorporated it into remedies for fever, boils, eye problems, diabetes, and diarrhea.
Bonvit Roasted Dandelion & Chicory Beverage can be used as an appetite stimulant, digestive aid, and for liver and gallbladder function. Dandelion leaves are used as a diuretic to stimulate the excretion of urine.

Health Benefits of Bonvit Roasted Dandelion & Chicory Beverage
Blood: Chicory tea has long been hailed as a blood purifier as it is rich in Vitamins A, C, B, K and P.
Liver and Gall Bladder: The ancient Greeks and Romans often used chicory tea as a liver stimulant. These days chicory root tea is used to treat intestinal parasites or worms and other ailments involving the liver and gall bladder such as jaundice and gout. It is also found to be beneficial to the spleen and is often prescribed to patients with gallstones.
Digestive System: Chicory root tea thickened with honey is often used as a safe laxative for children as it increases the flow of bile. In addition, studies have shown that chicory tea helps to eliminate phlegm from the gastro-intestinal tract and alleviates symptoms associated with an upset stomach. Meanwhile, chicory flower tea is considered a well-known appetite stimulant.
Skin: A cotton ball soaked in chicory tea can be applied directly on skin lacerations to alleviate painful swelling and irritation, and aid in the healing process. The tea has also been shown to aid in the healing of sores and boils. In addition, the sap from the chicory plant can be used to treat sunburn and poison ivy.
Bones: Studies show chicory tea aids in the body's ability to absorb calcium, a nutrient that helps build and maintain strong bones and teeth. The small intestine cannot digest two fibers found in the chicory root; rather, bacteria in the large intestine ferment the fibers. The process leads to the increased absorption of calcium and other important minerals.
Female Reproductive System: Women who suffer from severe premenstrual syndrome (PMS) often find drinking chicory tea helps alleviate painful symptoms. Studies show chicory assists in maintaining hormone balance and lessens the symptoms of PMS. The tea has also been shown to discourage the growth of yeast infections.
