It’s normal for your weight to vary by a few pounds, even when you exercise regularly and eat well.
Factors like stress, hormone levels, dehydration, and toxic exposure can cause your body to begin gaining weight unexpectedly.
Sometimes, the additional inches around your waist are simply caused by stubborn water weight.
The wonders of Parsley
Parsley isn’t exactly a well-appreciated health food. While most people know it simply as a garnish for pasta dishes, it’s just as medicinal as basil and mint.
It is traditionally used for its capability to detoxify the kidneys and liver through its diuretic properties. Also, it improves digestion to speed up the disposal of toxic waste.
Because toxins are often stored in fat cells, where they interfere with hormones and cell signaling, consuming parsley can promote weight loss by helping fat cells function properly.
Parsley is loaded with antioxidants like luteolin and apigenin, vitamins A and C to support your immune system, apigenin, and myristicin to support liver enzyme production.
It’s also rich in vitamin K for proper blood coagulation, vitamin E to prevent heart disease, potassium to maintain blood pressure, and B vitamins that strengthen and protect blood cells. The herb also has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Other benefits of parsley include:
- Prevents nerve damage
