Did you know that parsley can be a powerhouse of protection from carcinogens! Parsley was used medicinally prior to it decorating our plates and it’s no wonder why!
This beautiful herb contains flavonoids which help prevent oxygen-based damage to our cells, and oils like myristicin that have shown to inhibit tumor formation. Also, you will find antioxidants like A & C that are essential to many different functions in the body!
Parsley is a good source of one of the most important B vitamins, folic acid which is essential for the heart, proper cell division, and some types of cancer-prevention. It is mind boggling to me how this Superfood became a decorative staple on a plate.
So next time the waiter brings your food to the table on a plate decorated with parsley make sure you don’t leave it behind because it could save your life!
