People have used the plant for centuries to help treat countless physical ailments, including cancer, acne, liver disease and digestive disorders.

5 Reasons to add dandelion greens to your diet are:

The greens can be eaten cooked or raw, and they serve as an excellent source of vitamins A, C and K. Also the greens contain vitamin E, folate and small amounts of other B vitamins.
