Parsley Has Powerful Anti-Cancer Properties

Parsley Fights Cancer

Clinical assessment and laboratory investigations have proven that parsley stalls and fights the adverse action of carcinogens (or cancer causing agents), following the consumption of fried foods. It inhibits the increase in the appearance of mutagens excreted in the urine after eating fried foods.

This wonderful benefit of parsley is attributed to its high chlorophyll content. Also, the vegetable supplies generous amounts of vitamin C, carotenes and flavanoids, and they help mitigate the effects of the cancer-causing properties of fried foods.

Also, the herb possesses volatile elements such as limonene and myristicin that exert strong anti-cancer effects.

What's more, parsley juice is regarded as a powerful energy drink. It perks up energy levels significantly, battles weariness, and boosts endurance and stamina. This is because it is packed with large quantities of chlorophyll, calcium, zinc and potassium.
