Although it seems that we know parsley quite well, we always discover some other secret. Combinations with other foods are further enhanced by its purification function. It cleanses the blood, skin and the entire digestive tract extremely good.
Beside that, did you know that 23 grams of parsley has 70% of the required daily vitamin C and 30% of vitamin A? As it increases the secretion of sodium from the kidneys and water from the body, it increases the absorption of potassium. Chinese herbalists used it for lowering the pressure. Indian tribes cured bladder problems with it.
Nowadays, parsley is used in the whole range of dishes. We can hardly imagine fish dishes without parsley. Parsley is also an integral part of the herbal bouquet used for soups. Many add it to lettuce sauce. For example, the Trieste sauce is a mixture of parsley, garlic and olive oil (we can not imagine healthier ingredients)...
But despite its versatile use, we could consume parsley in even bigger quantities, but be careful. Too much parsley also has side effects. Skin reactions, irritability, and complications during menstrual cycles may appear. Pregnant women should be careful because parsley stimulates the heart rate of the fetus. Problems can arise with people who take drugs...
