This wonderful herb, also known as petroselinum crispum, has many benefits for your health and wellness. Just a little pinch goes a long way.
Parsley is one of my favorite herbs (I have many, HAHAHA!). Not only does it give the meals that fresh touch, but it enhances the flavor from good to succulent. Often used as a garnish, but the components and nutrients in parsley are amazing. Let’s check it out!
The main component in parsley is alpha-pinene, which has anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and antibacterial properties. Another component is apigenin, which also has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, antioxidant, and anti-viral properties. The nutrients in this great herb are calcium, folate, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, zinc, vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, C and E, which are very beneficial for your health and wellness.
Normally used as a garnish, but there are many dishes that implement parsley in the herbs and spices mix, like salsa and quiche. So, mixing parsley in with the dishes gives it that flavor boost and the health benefits listed above.
Using the parsley mixed with a carrier oil like olive oil can have amazing effects on insect bites, lice, skin parasites, and contusions.
A parsley mask does wonders for your skin! It helps with dark spots and acne, because of the wonderful components in parsley.
