While the majority of vegetables are overly promoted because of their many health benefits, many herbs are merely used and recognized for garnishing purposes and improving flavor. One such herb that is not receiving due credit for its numerous positive health effects is parsley.
Parsley is a plant that originated in the countries of Italy, Greece, Algeria, and Tunisia. It is widely used in the culinary world mainly as a garnish to make pasta, soups, and other dishes more appetizing and pleasing to the eyes. Parsley may have been known for decades for its aesthetic impact but results of many studies conducted on its health benefits are slowly securing this green herb’s spot on the medical map.
