Parsley is a savory green herb widely used for garnishing and flavoring meals. The bland appearance hides a strong combination of minerals and vitamins and while it’s common for it to be used in foods like salad, it also provides therapeutic benefits when mixed in tea.
By adding some parsley into a cup of tea, the hot water will allow the compounds will mix into it, ensuring you will be consuming vitamins such as A, K, and C as well as healthy minerals like potassium and magnesium. Together, the fusion of minerals, vitamins, and micronutrients known as polyphenols pack tremendous benefits including body detoxification, decreased risk of cancer, and bloating relief. Parsley tea also helps with the protection of the immune system due to the vitamins it contains, and can also help control blood pressure.
The preparation ingredients for parsley tea are simple. All you need is a cup of fresh parsley leaves (1/8 to ¼) and filtered water. If you wish, you can use raw honey or stevia as a taste option.
