Parsley Facts

Did you know: Parsley contains three times as much vitamin C as an orange by weight, and twice as much iron as spinach? 
It's also a good source of iodine, copper, & manganese, and contains many flavanoid phytochemicals & volatile oils known to have anticarcinogenic properties.
And, in one study published in the scientific journal, Nature, researchers showed that vegetable consumption, particularly parsley & onions, had a positive effect on bone density.
 Additionally, there've been positive indications from scientific studies that parsley might very well have blood-sugar stabilizing effects and also protect the body against diabetes-related damage.
