8 Amazing Health Benefits of Parsley

3. Parsley Can Help Regulate Blood Pressure

Parsley contains ample amounts of folic acid, a type of vitamin typically found in foods like peas, lentils, oranges, whole wheat items, beets, brussels sprouts, and spinach. Research from Harvard Medical School shows that foods high in folic acid can help the body regulate blood pressure and produce and maintain new cells.

And that’s not all: folic acid may also help prevent changes to our DNA that could lead to the development of cancer. So, if you’re worried about the existence of heart disease or cancer in your family, you may want to add more parsley to your diet.
