Often disregarded as a garnish, parsley didn’t earn its reputation as one of the most popular herbs for no reason. It boasts numerous health benefits that you are probably unaware of, including disease prevention, being high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, and even working as a diuretic.
Some of the reasons to include parsley in your diet include:
- Parsley is rich in antioxidants (including crisoeriol, apiin, apigenin, and luteolin) and also has anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, and anti-bacterial properties.
- It contains loads of minerals and vitamins to help boost your immune system and keep your bones strong including potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, magnesium, and vitamins A, B, C, E, K, beta-carotene, and folates.
- The folic acid content can help with controlling blood pressure.
- It helps with joint and muscle pain.
- It encourages digestion.
- It can have a diuretic effect which is excellent for detoxing and supporting kidney function.
- There have been links that it helps reduce blood sugar levels in diabetics.
- It helps with bad breath, especially after eating garlic (tip: add some chopped parsley to garlic dishes to avoid having garlic breath or chew on it and eat it after your meal).
- It has been linked with inhibiting cancerous tumor growths.
NOTE: Pregnant women and those with kidney stones should avoid taking too much (especially in juiced form) parsley in their diet.
So, with all these amazing benefits, why not start using this herb in your daily life? Some quick and easy ways are added to a smoothie, juiced, in omelettes, chopped through dishes, or through salads. The options are endless!
