This coffee or tea substitute is a perfect nourishing winter warmer. It’s delicious and chock full of nutrients to support your body during the cold and flu season.

Dandelion has wonderful liver supporting properties that will aid detoxification and boost functioning of the liver, kidneys, digestive system and skin. It is also an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant and contains vitamins A, C and D as well as zinc, magnesium, potassium and iron.
