Parsley

Immunity booster:  The high vitamin C content (higher than oranges) and the multi immune-enhancing compounds in parsley make it an extraordinary immunity booster.

Menstruation disorders:  The presence of apiole oil in parsley, which is a constituent of female sex hormones estrogen, makes it effective in regulating monthly periods.

Bladder/kidney/urinary tract problems:  Two healing compounds in parsley, myristicin and apiole, help increase urine flow that removes infection-causing bacteria from the urinary tract.  At the same time, it also detoxify the toxins from the body through urination. The diuretic effect helps prevent kidney stones and various urinary tract problems.

Bloatedness, water retention:  Nibbling/chewing on parsley in the days before menstruation can help increase urination and eliminating excess fluid that cause bloatedness or water retention.

Caution:  More is not better!  Frequency is preferred over quantity.
