Parsley is a green superfood so rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other nutrients that eating it is like using a multivitamin supplement – only one that actually works.
The nutrition in this herb is much more easily assimilated than in engineered multivitamins and many people who start using it regularly in their diet with attest to the many health benefits of parsley.
Parsley is a good source of provitamin A beta-carotene, with one cup containing around 100% of the standard RDA (though you’d really want to get more than that for vitamin A’s beneficial effects on your immune system, for healthy skin and vision, protection from infection and much more).
It is very high in vitamin C, containing far more than most well known sources like oranges and other citrus fruit (though these are admittedly much easier to eat in large quantities). Vitamin C from natural sources like parsley is a potent antioxidant that protects the cells in our bodies from dangerous free radical damage.
