Dandelion against water retention
Our grandmothers used to prepare a salad of fresh dandelion leaves to aid digestion. But this wild flower is also effective in gently draining the tissues and relieving swollen legs and ankles.
Also called dent-de-lion, the wild plant has diuretic properties, which has earned it its name "piss-au-lit". Thanks to its richness in potassium, the dandelion stimulates the elimination of water by the kidneys and unclogs the tissues by evacuating the excess of accumulated liquid. As a result, we deflate much more easily!
