Parsley is a herb that has an origin from the Mediterranean region of Southern Italy, Tunisia, and Algeria. For centuries, it has been used for cooking and for medical purposes. This amazing herb has a rich nutrient content, including magnesium, potassium, zinc, manganese, calcium, iron, vitamin A, K, B6, B12, C, and vitamin E. Parsley contains antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins which can strengthen the immune system. The Vitamin A can keep the eyes moist, thus protecting their surface. This vitamin along with other antioxidants can reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration. When parsley is combined with foods rich in beta-carotene such as carrots and spinach, it can provide even more benefits.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are other carotenoids in parsley, responsible for eliminating the eye damage caused by some environmental source like UV radiation. These two compounds can reduce the risk of cataracts. Lutein can prevent biological processes which can damage the retina.
Parsley has diuretic properties which can help you to treat numerous diseases including urinary tract infections, gallbladder stones, and kidney stones. Moreover, it has potent anti-inflammatory properties and can treat bruises, insect bites, toothaches and other types of inflammation.
This incredible herb can also protect cell damage from oxidation, prevent tumor formation, maintain strong and healthy bones, improve the heart health, and control blood sugar levels.
