Drinking parsley tea helps cleanse your kidneys by increasing urine production and flow, which may “push” out kidney stones. It’s also said to prevent the absorption of salt into kidney tissue, preventing the formation of kidney stones. This tea can also be used for reducing anxiety and calming the nerves; fresh herbs make for a more potent tea, but you can replace them with a handful of dried parsley leaves.
