Parsley is much more than a popular garnish—it’s a low-calorie, high-nutrient plant packed with antioxidants and fiber. And if you follow health advice from pop wellness expert Medical Medium, you’ll know that parsley is an alkalizing food. Why does that matter? When you’re feeling under the weather, your body is usually in a state of acidosis, which contributes to the properties—at least in animal studies—that make a nice home for irregular cell proliferation (ahem, the Big C). Since alkaline is the opposite of acidic, parsley may help prevent a health crisis and promote health and harmony in your overall physical state. As a remedy, this culinary herb is known for its cleansing and healing properties, and it’s famously used as a breath-freshener (just be sure to pull any leftover green leaves out of your teeth after you’re done chewing on them!). It's also a natural diuretic, meaning munching a few sprigs after a salty meal might help with that uncomfortable, bloated feeling (you gotta try something, right?). In modern holistic use, parsley, which contains vitamin K, provides nutritional support for the skeletal and immune systems. Most people eat flat- or curly-leaf parsley fresh, sprinkling it on foods like pasta or soup, but some also enjoy it in juices or steeped as a tea.
