five reasons to... ADD PARSLEY TO YOUR DIET.

1 PARSLEY contains vitamin K which aids bone health, and vitamin C which is essential for a healthy immune system.

2 IT is a great source of beta carotene, an antioxidant that can help protect the body against free-radical damage.

3 PARSLEY is high in iron. Two tablespoons of parsley provide 2% of your daily iron, so a sprinkling of parsley gives any food a little metallic boost.

4 APIGENIN, a compound found in parsley, could have strong anti-cancer properties, a study from the University of Missouri discovered.

5 EATING a bit of fresh parsley after your meal will freshen your breath naturally.
