      Enjoy better health with parsley

      Parsley is usually known to be a great garnish but it has a whole host of health benefits too. It’s a great source of nutrition and is rich in vitamins A, B, C and K besides minerals such as iron and potassium. It also helps reduce water retention and bloating (edema). It’s a known natural diuretic and clears away excess fluid without removing potassium.

      Safer grilling

      When you take parsley along with your char-grilled chicken, fish or steak, this reduces the risk of cancer-causing effects from heterocyclic amines. These are elements that occur when protein is cooked at high temperatures.

      Anti-aging benefits

      Parsley is great for making your skin look radiant. It’s rich in Vitamin C and this is important to help the skin generate collagen which is responsible for the skin’s structure and strength. Collagen also helps to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles.

      Blood vessel protection

      This is high in B vitamins and folic acid. Folic acid actively brings down homocysteine which is a naturally occurring amino acid in the body. Large amounts of this in the blood may damage blood vessels and this increases the risk of heart attack and stroke.

      Cuts down cancer risk

      Parsley is rich in a flavonoid called apigenin. This has wonderful anti-cancer properties and plays a key role in helping prevent breast, digestive tract, skin and prostate cancer. It also is a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.

      Boosts immune function

      Research has showed that parsley essential oil helps to calm down an over-stimulated immune response. This is very important for the body to battle against allergies, autoimmune and chronic inflammatory disorders.

      Brings down inflammation

      Parsley has the important benefit of bringing down swelling and is especially helpful for those suffering from pain and swelling due to arthritis. This is because it contains eugenol, a volatile oil known for its powerful anti-inflammatory as well as anti-arthritic properties.
