BENEFITS OF PARSLEY TEA:
- High in Antioxidants
Parsley is an excellent source of antioxidants — powerful compounds that help defend your cells against damage by potentially harmful molecules known as free radicals. Antioxidants are thought to play a central role in health and disease, with some research indicating that they could protect against chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
- Could Help Prevent Kidney Stones
Kidney stones are hard mineral deposits that form in your kidneys and cause severe, sharp pain in your back, side, and stomach. Some research suggests that parsley may aid in preventing kidney stones. One study found that treating rats with parsley helped increase urine volume, decrease urinary calcium excretion, and raise the acidity of urine (Trusted Source). Parsley has also been shown to act as a natural diuretic, which can increase urination and prevent kidney stone formation. 3. Good Source of Vitamin C
Parsley is rich in vitamin C. In fact (15g) serving provides nearly 20 mg of vitamin C — about 22% of the recommended daily value. Vitamin C is an important water-soluble vitamin that also acts as an antioxidant and plays an integral role in preventing disease. Vitamin C assists in the synthesis of collagen — a protein found in your skin, bones, muscles, joints, tendons, and other parts of your body. Vitamin C is necessary for wound healing, nutrient absorption, and bone formation as well. Adding parsley or parsley tea to your diet may help you reach your vitamin C needs, keeping you healthy, “a cup a day will keep the doctor at bay”.

Potential Side Effects:
Though parsley and parsley tea are associated with several benefits, you should consider the potential side effects as well. In particular, pregnant women are advised to avoid consuming large amounts of parsley, as it may induce uterine contractions (Trusted Source). It’s also high in vitamin K, an important fat-soluble vitamin involved in blood clotting (Trusted Source). If you’re taking a blood thinner like warfarin (Coumadin), it may be best to drink parsley tea in moderation, as high amounts of vitamin K may interact with these medications. Parsley tea is also not recommended for those taking diuretics, as it may cause excess water loss.
