Health & Nutrition Notes for Dandelion Greens

If you're trying to put more Vitamin C into your weight loss plan, Dandelion Greens offer a healthy punch at over 19 milligrams per cup in their raw form.

Other positive notes about this healthy vegetable include its impressive 1.48 protein gram content as well as almost 2 grams of dietary fiber.

There is minimal total fat in the greens, as is the case with almost all natural vegetables.

But on a surprising note - look at all that calcium contained therein! Over 100 grams in one cup of raw Dandelion Greens.

To place things into prospective, one cup of whole milk that is 3.25% milkfat contains 276 calcium milligrams.

And when these greens are part of a healthy salad mix, I'm likely to eat a lot more than a single cup.
