Aside from its many culinary uses, parsley is highly nutritious and has been shown to have many powerful health benefits ( 1 , 2 ).
It also acquired the name ajmud which seems to have come from one of the names for the Bengali spice radhuni, which has some of the vegetal, slightly bitter flavour of parsley. Unlike other temperate herbs and plants, parsley grew easily in India.
Rich in antioxidants and nutrients like vitamins A, K, and C, parsley may improve blood sugar and support heart, kidney, and bone health. What's more, this herb can easily be added to many tasty dishes. Parsley stays fresh for up to two weeks, whereas dried parsley may last up to a year.
