Many people suffer from swellings in their legs and are aware of the unpleasant condition which can affect all your activities.
The reason for swellings usually is caused by gaining weight, poor blood circulation, poor diet, pregnancy, and menstrual cycle. Also swelling could be caused by hot weather, humidity, and temperature changes.
Gravity also plays a big role in this process because it draws the fluids down in the legs, which again leads to swellings. Whatever the reason is for swelling it is definitely uncomfortable and quite painful.
When your legs are swollen you should lie down and raise the legs for at least 30cm in order to reduce it. In fact, we have another solution for this problem which involves natural tea. This tea contains parsley which is great for removing excessive fluids from the body and thus lowering the swellings in the legs.
Parsley tea is considered as great natural diuretic that also contain lots of health benefits. According to a study published by the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, parsley is considered as the best natural diuretic.
The reason behind this great benefit is the ability to inhibit sodium and pumps potassium ion which helps you stimulate the urine flow and the process of osmosis. Parsley is packed with potassium and doesn’t cause any side effects like many other diuretics do. Instead it helps you boost the immune system and the performance of the organism. You may consume as much as you want without suffering from any side effects.
Another research study reveals that parsley is great for regulating the blood pressure and improving the flow of the urine. They stated: “Diuretic and hypotensive activity of aqueous extract of parsley seeds”
Dr. John R. Christopher, expert herbalist, claims that one person should consume at least 64oz. of parsley tea per day in order to be able to treat edema.
For best results it is recommended to consume the entire parsley (always buy organic one) including the leaves, roots, and seeds. All of these parts have great amazing healing effects.
