This bitter, cooling edible green is one of our most prized natural diuretics. Because of its specific actions on the kidneys and its potassium content, it does not leach potassium as many diuretic do. It is useful for swelling, bloating, and hypertension when they are due to fluid retention and imbalance. Dandelion is high in nourishing minerals as well- drink the tea regularly as a nourishing tonic, or try stir-frying it fresh!
