HEALTH BENEFITS OF GERBS DRIED PARSLEY FLAKES
You may overlook parsley as a healthy vegetable because you likely consider it a garnish rather than a nutrient-dense food. According to Michael T. Murray, Joseph Pizzorno and Lara Pizzorno, authors of “The Encyclopedia of Healing Foods,” people have been eating parsley as a vegetable for more than 2,500 years, and have used it for medicinal purposes for even longer. Both dried and fresh parsley have a valuable place in your diet, although they contain different nutrients.
- The iron in dried parsley flakes (twice as much as in spinach) is essential for the production of an important oxygen-carrying component in the red blood cells called, heme.
- Copper is important because its required by the body for normal metabolic processes, but must be supplied through outside sources.
- The manganese in parsley contains super-antioxidant superoxide dismutase, and the folate helps form red blood cells and make up our genetic material.
- Parsley is useful as a digestive aid with its high fiber content. This helps move foods through the digestive tract and controls blood-cholesterol levels, but has a diuretic effect as well.
- A tea made from parsley is a traditional remedy for colic, indigestion, and intestinal gas. As an herb sprinkled in food, it actually helps purify the blood and fight cancer.
- Wonderful when added to your favorite salad dressing to provide color. Compliments dill, shallot, garlic, chives, thyme and basil. Use generously and at the end of cooking.
- Both fresh and dried parsley contain small amounts of many more vitamins and minerals. A 1-tablespoon serving of fresh parsley has 5 mg of calcium, and the same serving of dried has 18 mg. Calcium is important for bones and teeth. Fresh parsley also contains 21 mg of potassium, 6 mcg of folate and 62.3 mg of vitamin K in just 1 tablespoon. The same amount of dried parsley contains 43 mg of potassium, 3 mcg of folate and 21.8 mg of vitamin K. You need potassium for muscle and heart health and vitamin K for proper clotting of your blood. Folate may help reduce birth defect risks, if you are pregnant.
