From history: parsley in Ancient Greece enjoyed the same honour as in religious India.
She was considered a sacred plant, symbolizing glory and joy. Indeed, in solemn moments, she served as an ornament to Hercules.
As a spice, this culture began to be used in the Middle Ages thanks to Charlemagne, who ordered it to be grown in his gardens.
Soon, parsley became an indispensable addition to all vegetable dishes.
The value of parsley is associated with a high content of carotene and vitamin C, the presence of other vitamins (B1, B2, B6, PP),
as well as potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus and iron.
By the amount of potassium, it ranks first among vegetables, and by the presence of vitamins, it is not inferior to oranges.
Parsley is highly valued in medicine for its healing properties. Medicinal raw materials are seeds, roots, leaves and stems.
The plant has a diuretic, choleretic, antispasmodic, detoxifying and antiseptic effect.
Parsley is used as a diuretic for kidney and cardiovascular diseases, accompanied by oedema.
Infusion and decoction of seeds and leaves are used for kidney stones and inflammation of the mucous membrane of the urinary tract.
The use of a decoction is effective for decompensated heart defects.
Outwardly, parsley decoction is indicated for abscesses, bruises, bites, mosquitoes, bees and wasps.
