Fresh Parsley Tea for Elimination of Water Retention

The humble parsley is a scientifically proven diuretic apart from its traditional authority in folk medicine. Parsley is high on antioxidants, calcium, iron, and B complex vitamins. It inhibits the re-absorption of sodium and potassium which causes more water to flow through osmosis. This increases the volume of urine. Due to its excellent diuretic properties, parsley has been used to treat kidney stones, urinary tract infection and edema or the swelling due to water retention.
