Flat leaved parsley has some benefits to it, which make it all the more desirable to grow and have on hand. Did you know that parsley is loaded with good nutrition? Just like most green vegetables, parsley is a good source of vitamin K, A, folic acid, vitamin C, potassium, as well as fiber. It has substantial flavonoid content, which gives it strong antioxidant benefit. So it helps reduce free radicals and inflammation. Parsley also has iron in it. I am looking forward to including more italian parsley in my diet this next year. Its a natural breath freshener as well.
