When the weight goes up or down by a few pounds, it’s normal, even with regular exercise and a good diet. Factors like stress, hormone levels, dehydration, and toxic exposure can cause your body to start gaining weight unexpectedly. Sometimes, the extra inches around your waist are no cause for panic because they’re simply caused by stubborn water weight.
The Magical Properties of Parsley
Parsley isn’t appreciated enough. Most people just look at it as a garnish for various dishes, but its medicinal properties are overlooked.
Through its diuretic properties, parsley is the best herb for kidney and liver detox. It also boosts digestion to speed up the disposal of toxic waste.
As we all know by now, toxins are often stored in fat cells, and that’s exactly where they throw hormones off balance. Parsley contains antioxidants, as well as vitamins A and C to boost your immune system and to support liver enzyme production.
It’s also incredibly rich in vitamin K which is key for proper blood coagulation. There is also quite a lot of vitamin E in parsley, which is key for heart disease prevention. Next on the list is potassium, which is key to maintain blood pressure, and B vitamins that strengthen and protect blood cells.
Parsley even has some antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
