Risk Information

Caution(s) and Warning(s)
When used orally in very large doses (i.e., 200 grams); the apiole constituent might cause toxicity. Apiole can cause blood dyscrasias, kidney toxicity, and liver toxicity. Parsley oil contains significant amounts of the potentially toxic constituents, apiole and myristicin. Myristicin can cause giddiness and hallucinations....when parsley seed oil is used topically. Applying parsley seed oil to the skin can cause photodermatitis upon sun exposure.
PREGNANCY : When used orally in medicinal amounts. Parsley has been used orally as an abortifacient and to stimulate menstrual flow. Preliminary evidence suggests that maternal intake of An-Tai-Yin, an herbal combination product containing parsley and dong quai, during the first trimester increases the risk of congenital malformations of the musculoskeletal system, connective tissue, and eyes.

Concomitant intake with parsley might augment parsley allergy. There is one case report of severe urticaria and swelling in a person with a known mild parsley allergy after consuming parsley and aspirin.
Theoretically, parsley leaf and root might interfere with diuretic therapy due to aquaretic effects.
Theoretically, large amounts of parsley leaf and root might interfere with oral anticoagulant therapy with warfarin, due to vitamin K contained in parsley.
EDEMA: Theoretically, parsley might increase sodium retention and worsen edema.
HYPERTENSION: Theoretically, parsley might increase sodium retention and worsen hypertension.
KIDNEY DISEASE: Parsley is contraindicated in individuals with kidney disease or inflammation. Parsley contains constituents that can aggravate these conditions.

Known Adverse Reaction(s)
Orally, adverse effects specifically associated with more than 10 grams of the constituent apiole include hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia purpura, nephrosis, hepatic dysfunction, and kidney irritation. Adverse effects specifically associated with the constituent myristicin include giddiness, deafness, hallucinations, hypotension, bradycardia, paralysis, and fatty degeneration of the liver and kidneys.
