We all know this flower as the good ol’ dandelion. Despite this, its scientific name is Taraxacum officinale




Although it may seem strange a dandelion contains lots of great vitamins. They are very high in vitamin A and C and they also possess more beta-carotene than carrots and even more potassium than spinach and broccoli! It is believed that dandelions help improve the health of our kidneys. That’s why drinking dandelion tea is really awesome for indigestion! Looks like the dandelion’s not just a pretty face.
