Parsley is a common culinary garnish. This herb does more than just pretty up your plate, however. Because parsley contains so much chlorophyll, it is a fantastic freshener for bad breath. Even garlic doesn’t stand a chance against the power of parsley. In herbal medicine, the root is often used for urinary and kidney health. The leaves are commonly eaten in parts of Russia as an everyday vegetable.
In Greco-Roman times, parsley was used to make wreaths and crowns for victorious Olympians. Today, this green herb is used not only for looks but for its nutritional value.

Besides freshening the breath and supporting urinary and glandular health, parsley may also be used to alleviate uncomfortable side effects of menstruation, high blood pressure, bronchitis, asthma and allergies.
