Parsley is a well-known and well-used herb. Fresh parsley contains a concentration of essential oils that produce taste and aroma. But aside being known for its distinguished flavor, it’s also highly nutritious.
A rich source of antioxidants, parsley can provide much more than a decoration for your plate. Parsley contains two types of unusual components that provide unique health benefits — volatile oil components, including myristicin, limonene, eugenol, and alpha-thujene; and flavonoids, including apiin, apigenin, crisoeriol, and luteolin.
