Parsley is available in different kinds of shapes and sizes like small, flat or even large big leaves. Yet, it’s many benefits are not restricted to just providing you with flavour in your foods, but also goes beyond. So let’s start off with parsley home remedies that are not known to many-

Detoxifying and cleansing agent

 

One of the first few things that you can do with parsley is that you can just eat it up on its own. Fresh parsley added to salads, smoothies or even other foods gives you loads of flavour and freshness. But it also works as a detoxifying agent. It contains primary water-soluble antioxidant and beta-carotene that are known for reducing water bloating, cleanse the palette and also help in flushing out toxins from the body. Also, being a natural laxative you may have issues with loose motions due to overdose.  

Parsley tea for inducing menstrual cycle

 

It may not really be the best of the taste but if you have a late cycle or are worried about getting your cycle on the wrong date, you can induce the same by having parsley tea. Just take a litre of water and boil it. As it reaches boiling point, add a bunch of torn and washed parsley leaves to the same and cover the lid. Do not boil, it reduces nutrients. Strain and have 3 cups of this liquid everyday for the next 3 days. You should see results in jut 2 days though. An important note here is that though a general dose of parsley is not harmful, having too much of the same during your pregnancy can cause miscarriage in the first trimester.

Healthy nutrients

If you want to flavour up your dishes, then parsley is the best way to go. It is rich in vitamins like K, C and A, along with iron, folate, copper, fibre, calcium and even vitamin B1 and B3. The other advantage here is that parsley can be dried and frozen really well. Just tear the leaves and freeze the same. Thaw it before using. Similarly, you can also just dry it up in the oven and get your own dried parsley herb. If you have lack of taste in your mouth due to illnesses or general nausea, add more of parsley to soups, stews, pastas, etc. and notice the instant flavouring it adds.

If you are rushing through everything and don’t have time to cope up with your nutritional needs, mangoes are perhaps a good solution. Being rich in vitamin C, E, A, etc. they provide you with a generous balance of nutrients. Yes a mango has about 100+ calories each but it also contains flavonoids like betacarotene, alphacarotene, and beta-cryptoxanthin. With this nutritional boost, your problems like PCOS and endometriosis can be tackled too.

And the best way to consume this fruit would be to have it on its own, without any added sugar or preservatives. If you are making a shake out of the mangoes then use yogurt and honey instead. Remember that the calories come from these additional aspects and not from the generous and delicious mango fruit itself.
