Fresh or dried parsley tea?.

Hi Guys. When you consider the quote below, Do you believe you would derive more benefits from using fresh or dried parsley for the tea?.

Dried parsley had more calcium than even dolomite powder, a calcium mineral supplement. Fresh parsley has 203 mg/100g. Among the top 20 calcium sources: dried parsley has (1468 mg/100 grams).

Most calcium compounds are not very water soluble...better eat the parsley if you want the calcium.

And who eats 100g parsley regularly anyway? :o

Dairy products or broccoli/kale/soy if you're vegan would be better, I think. :)

Thankyou for the replies.

I have always had this belief that putting herbs into hot/warm water allows the body to uptake/absorb the nutrients better?.

Maybe, maybe not. It seems logical to me that consuming the herb in its entirety would maximize the benefits as brewing would not release all the nutrients (especially minerals). IMHO

So brewing parsley (making it into a tea) would be somewhat counter-productive?.

Seems so especially when you can easily eat it and use it in cooking ...
