Parsley

The high nutritional value of parsley comes from its vitamin A and vitamin C content. Parsley contains twice as much iron as spinach and it is a good source of manganese, calcium and potassium. Parsley is one of the most important herbs for providing vitamins to the body. It’s like an immune-enhancing multi-vitamin and mineral complex in green plant form. It grows in most climates and is readily available throughout the year.

Parsley has also been used by both Chinese and German herbalists to enhance the kidney’s ability to excrete sodium and water, so parsley acts as a natural diuretic.

Alfalfa

The health benefits of alfalfa have been known for centuries dating back to ancient Greece. They used alfalfa to treat a variety of diseases including bladder and kidney conditions. Traditional Chinese medicine uses alfalfa to treat kidney stones. Alfalfa has been used as a human food and herbal medicine for at least 1500 years.

Alfalfa contains vitamins (A, E, B6, K and D), minerals (calcium, iron, manganese, potassium, phosphorus, chlorine, sodium and magnesium) and contains more protein than beef, eggs and milk. It contains many essential enzymes and aids in digestion.


They have the dried parsley and alfalfa.

Another one on parsley:

Parsley is a particularly nutritious green plant but for whatever reason, it has long been suspected of being poisonous to birds. Parsley is not toxic to birds and can be fed in moderation without any problem.

It is a good source of iron, beta carotene and vitamins B1, B2 and C. Parsley contains most of the amino acids that are the "building blocks" of protein.

Medicinal benefits: Parsley is useful as a blood purifier. It detoxifies harmful contaminants, promotes healthy skin and feathers, tones the digestive system, prevents kidney ailments and treats arthritis. It also acts as a natural antibiotic.
