Parsley Health Concerns
Parsley appears fairly healthy at first glance. It has an ideal calcium to phosphorus ratio, is rich in vitamin A, low in sugar, and is not acidic. However, there is one concern.High Level of Oxalates
Parsley contains a high level of oxalates. Oxalates are chemicals plants produce which helps decrease their calcium levels. When bearded dragons consume foods high in oxalates they will not be able to absorb as much calcium. Since parsley is rarely served in large portion sizes, this should not be a major issue as long as less than 10g of parsley is served once per month.
