The benefit is feeding the whole plant.
Don't look at this and think "I'll get dandelion greens next time I shop" because you'd be missing the root which is the prime part of the plant for rejuvenating the liver, the organ system that springs to life at this time of year.
The root is complemented by the leaves and flowers when fed as food, all the parts contributing to wellness when used in this manner, not by overwhelming the system, but by gently shifting foods with the seasons.
Many dogs are searching out just the right grass to eat to stimulate their liver and gall bladder at this time of year. They instinctually do this, reminding us to do so as well.
