Parsley is a flavorful green herb commonly used for meal garnishing and boosting flavor. Its plain appearance hides a potent punch of minerals and vitamins and although it’s frequently used in foods like salads, it can also be used as a therapeutic tea.

By placing some parsley into your tea, the hot water will cause the compounds to infuse into the beverage, which means you’ll be drinking vitamins like A, K, and C as well as potassium, magnesium, iron, and more. Collectively, the mix of minerals, vitamins, and polyphenols (micronutrients) provides a number of benefits including detoxifying the body, reducing the risk of cancer and kidney stones, and relieving bloating. Parsley tea also assists with immune system health thanks to the vitamins it provides and it can also help with managing blood pressure.

The ingredients to prepare parsley tea are simple. All you need is a 1/8 to 1/4 cup of fresh parsley leaves and some filtered water. You can optionally use raw honey or stevia if you wish.
