Parsley for Sweet Breath and a Healthy Heart
I don't know about you, but I cannot eat a fish pie without parsley in it - or at least a nice big sprig of parsley as garnish. It not only gives a nice bite to the fish, but is also good for your health - although you will need a bit more than the occasional sprig when you eat fish pie for it to have any lasting benefit. It's also good to munch if you have halitosis - or bad breath. Most halitosis remedies include parsley. However, this fabulous herb has more going for it that just that where your health is concerned.
It's great to have sweet breath, but even better to have a healthy heart - and best to have both! You can have both with parsley because it is packed full with antioxidants that help keep your arteries free from cholesterol blockages. Parsley contains Vitamin A, vitamin C and carotenoids, all of them antioxidants that neutralize free radicals in your blood before they can oxidize your serum cholesterol.
So - if you want sweet breath and a healthy heart, a parsley supplement will help you achieve both.
How Does Parsley Affect Your Health?
Many look upon parsley as a garnish that they either love or hate. If you love it, you can enjoy your culinary tastes while also protecting your heart and your immune system. However, if not, then you can still enjoy the health benefits of parsley without the taste by taking a supplement in tablet or capsule form. Parsley offers a large number of benefits to your health, including its antioxidant effect on free radicals that protects your cardiovascular system from the potentially fatal atherosclerosis.
Parsley is also a diuretic and hypertensive, reducing your blood pressure by enabling your system to more rapidly remove excess water in the blood and also preventing narrowing of the arteries by free-radical oxidation of LDL cholesterol. Like most antioxidants, parsley is also anti-inflammatory and can help reduce the inflammation, swelling and pain of osteo- and rheumatoid arthritis. Parsley also contains myristicin, a substance believed to neutralize carcinogens such as those in cigarette smoke, so that they pass through the body without causing cell damage.
A parsley supplement can offer all of these health benefits and many more.
