The Power of Parsley

A half cup of chopped parsley—try sprinkling some into soups or salads—provides around 15% of your daily vitamin A needs in the form of beta-carotene and other carotenes the body converts into vitamin A. This half cup also supplies 10% of your daily folate needs, a B vitamin that is particularly important for heart health. And when it comes to vitamin C, you can’t do much better than parsley; that half cup provides more than half of the recommended dietary amount for this nutrient. Yet, while parsley will help you meet your vitamin A, B, and C needs, the place this herb really shines is in providing vitamin K. A half cup serving provides an impressive five and a half times the recommended dietary intake for vitamin K.

Vitamin K is often an “overlooked” nutrient, though it shouldn’t be, especially for anyone concerned about diabetes. A study of over 800 men and women found that those with the highest intake of vitamin K had around 40% lower risk of developing metabolic syndrome compared with people eating the least vitamin K. Metabolic syndrome and diabetes go hand-in-hand, so anything that can help manage the risk of metabolic syndrome may provide health benefits to individuals with diabetes.

Parsley adds a fresh twist to many of your favorite summer dishes. When cooking corn on the cob, try sprinkling ample amounts of parsley over the corn before wrapping in foil for grilling. Parsley has a bright, fresh flavor that plays off the sweetness of corn. Chopped parsley, garlic, and onions make a terrific garnish for grilled fish, chicken or meats, and you may be surprised to find parsley plays well with fruit. Try it sprinkled on chopped watermelon or mango for a new taste sensation.
