DANDELION

 

Dandelions, flowers, roots and leaves, have been used for centuries in traditional medicine, most notably for liver detoxification and to support kidney function, as a natural diuretic and for inflammation reduction. Dandelion leaves contain potassium, a mineral that is often lost during increased urination. There is also evidence that dandelion leaves may normalize blood sugar levels.

 

It is very popular offered dry in a scoop to horses; it seems to be selected when the horse is experiencing problems such as mud fever and is usually selected when there is excessive drinking of water and urination or uncharacteristic bucking.
