The nutritional benefits of cold pressed juicing are off the scale! Today, we’ll take a closer look at the humble, dandelion green. Taste-wise, this green (will ever so slighty) spice up your juice. What’s in them? Dandelion greens are high in Vitamin K, which studies have shown to be a preventative measure against Dementia, as Vitamin K limits neuron damage. Vitamin K also plays a role in strengthening bones. Other vitamins present in dandelion greens include Vitamin A, B6 and C. Dandelion greens are also a key factor in eye health as they contain the flavonoid zeaxanthin, which protects the retina from UV rays. Also present in this humble green are thiamin, riboflavin, calcium, iron, potassium and manganese and magnesium.
