THIS HERB PREVENTS 9 DIFFERENT EYE PROBLEMS INCLUDING CATARACTS!
Herb that originated in the Mediterranean region has been known as parsley. Many people use it in the food as a spice but there are many nutrients found in parsley.
Many vitamins, minerals and antioxidants found in parsley are known to help strengthen the immune system,such as:
– Vitamin A,Vitamin K,Vitamin C,Vitamin E,Vitamin B6,Vitamin B12
The Vitamin A content helps to protect the surface of the eyes by keeping them moist. When Vitamin A is combined with other antioxidants, it can reduce the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration. Food rich in beta carotene such as spinach and carrots are even more beneficial when combined with parsley.
Lutein and zeaxanthin in parsley are compounds that work hard to erase eye damage caused by environmental sources, such as UV radiation. These two carotenoids are known to reduce the risk of cataracts, while lutein works to inhibit biological processes that are known to be damaging to the retina.
Fresh parsley is better than dried form of herb. Choosing organic parsley is the best way to reap all of its health benefits without the risk of unwanted pesticides. Keep it refrigerated in a bag, ready to juice or cook with.
