Petroselinum crispum / Parsley Powder
£6.44 – £17.75
Parsley or garden parsley (Petroselinum crispum) is a species of flowering plant in the family Apiaceae, native to the central Mediterranean region (southern Italy, Greece, Portugal, Spain, Malta, Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia), naturalized elsewhere in Europe, and widely cultivated as an herb, a spice, and a vegetable.
Garden parsley is a bright green, biennial plant in temperate climates, or an annual herb in subtropical and tropical areas. Parsley grows best in moist, well-drained soil, with full sun. It grows best between 22–30 °C, and usually is grown from seed. Germination is slow, taking four to six weeks.
Medicinal Action and Uses
Anti-allergenic – Studies have shown that parsley inhibits the secretion of histamine, a substance produced in the body that is responsible for triggering allergy symptoms. The herb may therefore be helpful as a herbal remedy for hay fever.
Diuretic – Parsley has diuretic properties and has been used to treat fluid retention (edema or dropsy) and to speed up the elimination of harmful toxins from the digestive system.
Stomachic – Parsley aids digestion of the foods we eat and acts to prevent gas and bloating.
