Dandelion Tea - Alleviates Bloating

Are you feeling bloated?  Backed up?  Miserably "blubby"?  I know when I am experiencing water retention I feel like everyone around me is looking at me and noticing my extra flab.  I know it is all in my head but there is something you can do to alleviate some of the symptoms and get back to loving yourself and feeling good.

Dandelion Tea!  (Yes, from those weeds you see around the yard, lol)

The dandelion plant contains bitter compounds in the root that stimulate digestion and help with constipation.  It also has a diuretic effect that can alleviate bloat and water retention.

Just drink 1 cup of dandelion tea with each meal to benefit from it's effects.  It has a nice nutty flavor.  If you are not a tea drinker you can take a supplement (500 - 550 mg) 3 times a day.

This is good to know, Gina. Glad you're back. Now if only I can get rid of this awful cough with something easily natural. Hard to workout when you're hacking up a lung and can't breathe.
