Benefits of Parsley & Lemon

Benefits of Lemon

  1. Lemons are alkalizing for the body: Lemons are acidic to begin with but they are
    alkaline-forming on body fluids helping to restore balance to the body’s pH.
  2. Lemons are rich in vitamin C and flavonoids that work
    against infections like the flu and colds.

    stimulant to the liver and is a dissolvent of uric acid and other poisons,
    liquefies the bile. Fresh lemon juice added to a large glass of water in the
    morning is a great liver detoxifier.
  4. The citric acid in lemon juice helps
    to dissolve gallstones, calcium
    deposits, and kidney stones.

     to aging and
    most types of disease.

Benefits of Parsley

Parsley is a
pretty little Mediterranean herb that lends a sprinkling of color to your
plate. But let’s not think of it as just a garnish—after all, parsley has been
around for more than 2000 years, and boasts some time-tested benefits that you
should know about.

  1. Parsley is rich in many vital vitamins,
    including Vitamin C, B 12, K and A. This means parsley keeps your immune
    system strong, tones your bones and heals the nervous system, too.
  2. It helps flush out excess fluid
    from the body, thus supporting kidney function. However, the herb contains
    oxalates, which can cause problems for those with existing kidney and gall
    bladder problems.
  3. Regular use of parsley can help
    control your blood pressure. The folic acid in this herb is like a tonic
    for your heart.
  4. Parsley essential oil, when
    massaged into the scalp, may reduce hair loss.
  5. Use parsley daily, and you’ll
    feel relief from joint pain. That’s because the herb has anti-inflammatory
  6. Parsley tea relaxes stiff
    muscles and encourages digestion.
