Parsley, medicinal herb

Its flavor appeals in the kitchen, and that’s good because its leaves and stems make it a real ally of our health.

It supports immunity

While aromatic herbs often contain a cocktail of vitamins , parsley is particularly rich in vitamin C, since it provides an average of 200 mg per 100 g. It’s almost four times more than an orange, at equal weight! Antioxidant and protective, vitamin C strengthens the immune system and is an excellent anti-fatigue. A good reason to sprinkle your dishes with this tasty condiment!

It fights aging

The parsley contains a flavonoid, apigenin, which it owes its antioxidant properties. This substance has been studied in the laboratory, where it has demonstrated that it effectively fights free radicals, responsible for the premature aging of our cells.

It helps us eliminate

Taken in herbal tea or in green juice associated with other fruits or vegetables , parsley promotes the elimination of urine and, as a result, waste stored in the body. A boon for a little “spring cleaning” or when you want to knock out some curves! But be careful not to abuse, especially in herbal tea, when you have kidney failure and you should avoid diuretics.

It soothes digestive disorders

Like other aromatic plants such as basil, mint or coriander, parsley alleviates digestive disorders such as bloating or gastro-oesophageal reflux, thanks to its decongestant and calming effect.

It’s chasing bad breath

In this regard, his reputation has passed through the centuries and would even find a scientific explanation. Indeed, some of its compounds have the ability to capture sulphurous substances present in the mouth and intestines, thus removing the bad smell they carry.
