Parsley is commonly used to enhance food flavor but it has also a number of medicinal properties, among which is fighting water retention.
However, the amount that we add to meals are insufficient to provide all the health benefits this herb can offer.
This herb has properties that are important in the treatment of urinary tract infections and other related diseases like kidney disease. An old woman made a recipe for making tea parsley. This woman was 72kg before drinking it; after five days of drinking, she lost 5 kg of her weight! She claims that fat is taken off her body in the form of waste water.
Here’s a recipe for preparing parsley tea that an old Bosnian woman shared:
- 5 tablespoons of chopped parsley
- 1-liter water
- Honey (Optional)
- Heating the water until it boils
- Add the parsley in the water and let it simmer for 20 minutes
- Remove the parsley with the trickling filter through. Now you can drink your tea! You can add honey to improve the taste.
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.
