GLOSSARY
PARSLEY

Parsley

 

How does it work?

Parsley, botanically known as Petroselinum crispum, is used both medicinally and as a food source.1 Therapeutically, parsley is used for treating a myriad of conditions such as urinary tract infections, kidney stones, gastrointestinal disorders, jaundice, indigestion, diabetes, fluid retention, anaemia, high blood pressure, prostate issues, and osteoarthritis.2 This is due to containing high levels of nutrients such as iron, potassium, magnesium, folate, vitamin A, C and K.3 Parsley also contains high levels of the flavone apigenin,4 a plant compound known to possess high antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer activity.5

What results can be expected?

Parsley may assist in providing the body with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer and nutrient properties to assist in general wellbeing as well as treating conditions of the urinary tract, gastrointestinal system and inflammation.6
