Why is Parsley Our Favorite Herb?

April 9, 2019

One thing is pretty obvious about us over at Parsley Health: we love parsley. You may be curious why an herb that is traditionally used to decorate your dinner plate would be worthy of such superstardom.

Well, it’s not just any old herb. It’s a super herb with incredible healing properties. Adding a little parsley to your salad, green juice, or soup ups the power of your organs to not only pull vital nutrients from that food, but to also use those nutrients properly.

If that wasn’t impressive enough, parsley contains high levels of essential nutrients all by itself.

Vitamin K. This important vitamin is a natural antioxidant that promotes blood clotting–something that’s essential for wounds to heal–and supports bone strength and resilience. Parsley is loaded with it!

Vitamin C. Our immunity boosting friend, Vitamin C, has been linked to protecting the body from cardiovascular disease, stroke, and eye conditions. Some studies have suggested parsley contains more Vitamin C than citrus fruit.

Beta Carotene. Our bodies convert Beta Carotene into Vitamin A, an essential nutrient that protects the lungs and colon, while also supporting the liver. It also benefits the health of hair, skin, and eyes.

Folate. This B Vitamin is a critical nutrient in proper cell division, which is important for the areas of the body, like the cervix and colon where cell division is constant and rapid.

Iron. Parsley contains an impressive amount of this essential mineral that helps transport oxygen throughout the body via our red blood cells.

Volatile Oil Components. This may sound like a bad thing, but it’s actually really important! These unique components help neutralize carcinogens, and therefore can be useful in cancer prevention.

With this in mind, parsley can help with:

  • Anemia/Iron deficiency
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Liver congestion
  • Fatigue
  • Menstrual pain
  • And more!

Pretty amazing, right? That’s why we love this particular herb so very much. It’s fresh and green, but packs a serious punch against lots of health conditions.
