We all know how to properly identify Dandelion.  We all know that Dandelion possesses a resilient disposition, and we’re probably aware that Dandelion is edible.

What new things, then, can be said about the world’s most familiar plant — one that greets us every single morning… every single afternoon… and every single day, at least until the snow falls again?

Here’s something new:  If you want to look and feel better, eat Dandelion flowers.

Yes, the entire aerial portion is edible, including Dandelion’s leaves, stalks, and buds, though if you really want to ingest more local nutrition and medicine from your landscape, eat the yellow flower.  It may be the healthiest part of the plant.

At least that’s what research from the scientific journal Nutrition Reviews suggests.  If you’re interested in hearing more about the rarely discussed, though undoubtedly incredible medicinal properties contained within Dandelion’s flower, check out this new video!
