Parsley not Just a Food

PARSLEY BENEFITS FOR IMMUNITY, DIGESTION & MORE

By Dr Axe

Original poster on Telegram states: Because my husband is on Coumadin, there are certain foods – foods which are high in Vitamin K – that he needs to be careful of since they thicken the blood. Since I had this knowledge, I knew that to slow down my heavy menstruation, I needed to get my hands on Vitamin K. I took some parsley from my garden and ate that; It slowed down my menses.

Parsley looks similar to Cilantro but the taste is very different. Cilantro removes heavy metals and has a stronger taste than Parsley. Both herbs provide antioxidants.

What is parsley good for in terms of anti-aging and immune-boosting benefits?

It contains a range of protective vitamins and flavonoid antioxidants that are responsible for many of the disease-fighting parsley benefits being researched today. These antioxidants include luteolin, apigenin, lycopene, beta-carotene and alpha-carotene.

Antioxidants help slow the aging process by fighting free radical damage, or oxidative stress, along with inflammation within the body. This is important because free radical formation is known to contribute to almost every age-related disease, including cancer, heart disease, neurodegenerative diseases and eye disorders.

When adults were given high quantities of the herb, they showed a significant improvement in lowering oxidative stress levels compared to those who didn’t receive it, according to a study done by the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration’s Institute of Food Safety and Toxicology in Copenhagen, Denmark. During the study participants were initially given a diet that didn’t contain sources of antioxidants.

The researchers noticed that when the subjects were on the restricted diet, their oxidative stress markers rose, but when parsley was added to their diets during the second half of the study, it was found to help reverse the signs of oxidative stress thanks to its status as a high-antioxidant food.

There are many great dishes that feature parsley as a very important ingredient and they are quite tasty. My favorite is an old Lebanese salad called Tabbouleh. There are many recipe versions of this salad but the featuring ingredient is always parsley.

The Italians have some great Recipes featuring parsley. This delightful herb is amazing in so many ways. Tasty and extremely healthy. To many, it just may appear as a garnish to be used in dishes as a spark of color, but the health benefits are not to be dismissed.

Start looking at Parsley with more appreciation of the wonderful benefits it offers.

So how can we keep parsley longer in the fridge? It doesn’t last as long as you would like, but if you pat the parsley dry and place it in a paper bag in the fridge it should last more than a few days. Most people use it up quickly once purchased.

Parsley is an herb and is easy to grow, this way you only cut the quantity you need for each dinner and keep the rest in the garden fresh. You can research gardening tips on this. Videos are surely available. Consider grow lights so that you can grow your herb garden indoors, to keep it safe from damaging creatures and critters.
