Summer “Weed” DOWNS Blood Sugar
When it comes to health and medicine, we have it very backward here in America.
Health organizations promote things like diet soda while demonizing meat and eggs.
It’s like we’re living in a world of opposites.
Case in point: Scientists have identified a summer weed that’s jam-packed with vital nutrients and can lower your blood sugar, too.
But you’ve probably been told to kill it.
Dandelions are the bane of homeowners all across America.
Whether you spray them with dangerous chemicals or dig them out by the roots, these pesky yellow weeds still come back year after year.
But before you throw your hands up in frustration this summer, consider what a recent study found…
It turns out that these hated flowers are one of the healthiest foods on the planet.
The researchers wanted to be able to classify a list of the most nutritious foods based on their association with reducing chronic disease, as well as a list of specific nutrient content.
The 17 nutrients specifically analyzed included the following:
- And vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, E, and K.
And out of the top 41 foods, dandelions ranked as #16! That means it out-nutrients kale and broccoli!
In fact, compared to spinach, dandelion leaves have twice the calcium, three times more vitamin A, 5 times more vitamin K and E, and 8 times more antioxidants!
Dandelions in particular are a good source of vitamins K, A, C, and E. They provide iron, calcium, magnesium, and potassium.
Even better? Another study shows that dandelions also contain powerful compounds that can lower IMPROVE your insulin sensitivity and REDUCE your blood sugar levels.
I’d say this weed definitely qualifies as a superfood.
The best part about dandelions is that every single part of the plant is good for you.
You can eat the greens raw or cooked.
You can make dandelion wine with the flowers.
And the root can be steeped to make tea.
There are plenty of supplements and teas on the market that can help you take advantage of all the health benefits dandelions have to offer.
But since it’s the middle of summer, why not save yourself some money and get some from your back yard?

“You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” “All washed up.” “Over the hill.” I’m tired of society programming you to think that you should start expecting less out of life once you reach a certain age.
