Other Benefits Of Parsley
Parsley contains two important components in the forms of essential oil and flavonoids. The essential oil contains an organic compound called myristicin which studies show that it can inhibit tumor formation especially in the lungs, can fight against free radicals, and can neutralize carcinogens like benzopyrene which is present in tobacco smoke and charcoal grill smoke.
The flavonoid compound called luteolin is an antioxidant which increases the antioxidant level in the blood,and is said to help prevent leukemia and many types of cancer, such as breast, colon, lung, ovarian,pancreatic and prostate cancers. Another chemical present in parsley in great quantity is apigenin which has anticancer properties which inhibit the formation of new blood vessels that feed tumors.
Parsley has very good source of folic acid which strengthens the heart and reduce the risk of stroke and heart disease.
