Parsley is great for your eyes and is used as a natural medicine to heal various conditions while improving your vision. Not only can you use this awesome herb in cooking your favorite dishes at home but it can boost your health as well.
Eating Parsley regularly helps to make sure that your body gets the vitamins and nutrients that you need to develop your own ‘eagle vision’ and see better than before. Parsley is rich in vitamin C, keratin and iron while also working as an antispasmodic, antiseptic, and natural detoxifier.
Here we can find nutrients such as:
- Vitamin A; K; W; B6 and B12
Vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants found in parsley known to help strengthen the immune system. The content of vitamin A helps to protect the surface of the eye, and keep moist.
When vitamin A is combining with other antioxidants, it can reduce the risk of developing macular degeneration associated with age.
Foods rich in beta-carotene, such as spinach and carrot are even more beneficial when combined with parsley.
Other carotenoids – Lutein and zeaxanthin work hard to erase eye damage caused by environmental sources such as UV radiation.
These two carotenoids reduce the risk of cataracts. Lutein acts to inhibit biological processes that known to be harmful to the retina.
Parsley also has a natural diuretic effect that helps to control various diseases, such as kidney stones, urinary tract infections, and gallbladder stones, and has anti-inflammatory properties that treat toothaches, bruises, insect bites and other causes of inflammation, including rheumatoid arthritis.
Parsley can provide much more than just a decoration on your plate. The components inhibit tumor formation while protecting against cellular oxidative damage.
Parsley also supports a healthy heart, helps in maintaining strong and healthy bones, and can be useful to help with the levels of blood sugar and control diabetes.
