Commonly used as a spice to enhance food flavor, parsley is a herb that also has a number of medicinal properties, among which fighting water retention. However, the amounts we normally add to meals are insufficient to provide all the health benefits this herb has to offer.
For one thing, parsley is extremely beneficial for treating urinary tract infections and kidney diseases because it’s a powerful diuretic.
Both parsley leaves and root are used in natural medicine.
This is a recipe for parsley tea shared by a Bosnian woman.
“Parsley is a miracle. On Thursday I weighed 72kg, and two days later I weighed 5kg less. It’s about the excess water that was excreted from my body, not the fat. Now I feel great,” said the woman.
All you need to do to prepare this health-boosting drink is add 5 tbsps. chopped parsley into 1l boiling water.
Leave it aside for 20 minutes, strain and drink.
What makes this tea so efficient is the fact that it promotes water elimination from the body.
And along with water, you also eliminate many toxins, bacteria and impurities from your body.
As mentioned above, a number of studies confirm that parsley is a powerful diuretic and strong antioxidant.
Note: Consume parsley tea regularly but don’t exceed a dose of 1l a day.
