What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

8 Surprising Health Benefits of Dandelion Leaf

How This Familiar Weed Can Change Your Life 

When people hear the word “dandelion” they tend to think about weeding their garden in the summer or blowing the flowers’ seeds to make a wish. However, this typically pesky weed is full of vitamins A, B, C, and D, as well as minerals, such as iron, potassium, and zinc. Having these vitamins and minerals means also having numerous health benefits that many cultures have been reaping for centuries. Now it’s time to see for yourself just what dandelions can do for you!

Here are 8 potential health benefits to dandelions:

1. Aids In Weight Loss

The first surprising health benefit to dandelions is its natural diuretic properties. A diuretic acts on different parts of the kidney, causing salt and water to be drawn from the blood and excreted into the urine. Urine volume increases as fluid moves from your body and the result is a decrease in excess body water weight. Dandelion had been used abundantly as a diuretic in Europe, Asia, and the Americas without any prior research, so in a 2009 study it was officially proven to show promise as a diuretic in humans. 

2. Lowers Blood Pressure

Dandelions are also believed to have a positive effect on cardiovascular health due to their high potassium content. An increased potassium intake with food has been found to lower blood pressure. Similarly to the effect of a diuretic, the more potassium you eat, the more sodium you lose through urine. Therefore, adding dandelion leaf into your diet can help lower your blood pressure which makes you less likely to experience the following:

  • Heart attack or stroke
  • Aneurysm
  • Heart failure
  • Kidney problems
  • Eye problems
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Changes with memory or understanding
  • Dementia

3. Provides Antioxidants

Dandelions contain several different types of antioxidants throughout the roots, leaves and flowers. Antioxidants are natural substances that may prevent or delay some types of cell damage. Dandelions are a rich source of flavonoids and polyphenol compounds, both of which may protect against chronic disease.

4. Improves Skin

A 2015 research study indicates that dandelions may help protect the skin from sun damage. Ultraviolet light causes immense damage to the skin and contributes to skin aging. Researchers  found that dandelions could reduce the impact of one type of damaging UV light, so if dandelions cause less UV light they also cause a lesser likelihood of premature aging.

5. Promotes Liver Health

Dandelions can have positive effects on liver health. In a 2021 study, it was shown that dandelion extract may be a potential preventive therapeutic agent for the severe liver and renal inflammatory injury associated with acute on chronic liver failure. However, these studies were animal tested so it is not yet fully proven.

6. Reduces Inflammation

Some studies indicate that dandelion extracts and compounds may help reduce inflammation in the body. Researchers found that chemicals present in dandelions had some positive effects on reducing inflammatory responses.

7. Controls Blood Sugar

Dandelion has been used around the world as a natural way to control Type 2 diabetes in the past. Chicoric and chlorogenic acid are two bioactive compounds in dandelions that may help decrease blood sugar levels and the studies in animals do suggest the possibility of reduced  blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. However, researchers are still trying to prove the validity.

8. Reduces Cholesterol

Lastly, a study in which rabbits were fed a high-cholesterol diet and supplemented with dandelion root resulted in a significant improvement in the rabbits’ health because dandelions contain bioactive compounds that may help lower an individuals’ cholesterol. Lowering cholesterol is an important step in reducing risk for heart disease.

Incorporating dandelion leaf into your diet is an easy way to reap the benefits of this powerful plant.

How Can You Add Dandelion Into Your Diet?

Dandelion Tea is a great way to add dandelion to your diet.
Almost every part of the dandelion can be ingested in numerous ways. 

Flowers: Dandelion Tea- Put the dandelion petals into a cup, pour boiling water over the petals, let steep for 5-10 minutes, strain, sweeten, if desired. Sip slowly.

Or try these other recipes: Dandelion Jelly, Dandelion Honey, Fried Dandelions, Dandelion Muffins, Dandelion Infused Brandy, Dandelion Bread

Greens: Dandelion Salad- In a large bowl, toss the dandelion greens with shallot, sprinkle with toasted bread crumbs, and drizzle the greens with desired dressing. Serve immediately.

Or try: Dandelion Egg Noodles, Dandelion Greens and Beans

Roots: Dandelion Root Coffee- If you're starting with unroasted root, begin by roasting fresh dandelion root at 350 for 40 minutes or dried dandelion root for 15 minutes. Place the roasted dandelion root in a pot with other spices. Add 2 cups of water and bring to a boil.  Simmer for 10-15 minutes. Strain and enjoy plain, or add milk and the sweetener of your choice.

Stems: This is the one part of the dandelion that is not commonly eaten because it contains a very bitter, milky substance that isn’t very appetizing. 

*The most important thing about eating wild dandelions is to only pick in areas that are not subject to herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers, heavy metals or other forms of chemical pollution. No matter how many times you wash them, there is no way to fully know whether or not a chemical has been eliminated.*

You Can Also Consume Dandelions In Supplements

Healthy foods like the dandelion are most beneficial when eaten fresh, but if you’re not a fan of their flavor or the plants are out of season, dandelion supplements may be a great alternative. Although, speaking with your healthcare provider first is always recommended because dandelion supplements may interact poorly with some drugs, including lithium, blood thinners, certain antibiotics, diuretics, and some heart and blood pressure medications.
