Dandelion Root

While having a hectic week, I found my way to chocolate candy and am now suffering from a bit of an acne breakout. I decided that I was going to do a short detox, so I picked up some roasted dandelion root tea to cleanse my liver. Dandelion tea is also a good alternative to drinking coffee.

The body has so many functions and to cleanse your body of impurities, there are several areas that you can focus on including kidneys, lungs, skin, intestines and liver. I decided to focus on my liver mainly because this is where toxins are processed for elimination. The dandelion root is used to stimulate the liver, so that it is prepared to push the impurities through.

For purposes of this post and personal knowledge, I decided to share with you the benefits of dandelion root and how it affects your moods. This "weed" is known to alleviate symptoms of depression due to its high amount of vitamin B-complex. I think it is interesting how natural ingredients are also used as mood enhancers.

I'll be sure to report back on my skin, as well as my mood after drinking the tea daily for a week or two.
