I've been reading and found out that parsley is great for bone strength. [ Who needs milk!] Trying to break from the sterio type that says eat meat for protein, and drink milk for calcium, when its found in other natural foods like fruits and vegetables.
Facts about Parsley:
Vitamin K = 1640 mg [Helps prevent fractures and low bone density. Good for bone growth, and reverses bone loss. Also, this vitamin helps attract calcium to the bone to be absorbed. Vit K has prevented bone loss and fractures in persons suffering with Anorexia Nervosa, Cirrhosis of the liver, etc. ]
Calcium = 138 mg [ Increases bone strength and density etc. Calcium alone can't help your bones, Vitamin K helps it to be absorbed. ]
Potassium = 554 mg [ Helps with heart and kidney disorders, anxiety, balances blood pressure, helps with muscle disorders, etc. ]
Side note: In milk, there is 290 mg calcium, but only 0.2 mcg of Vit k. Compared to parsley having slightly 'less' calcium 138 mg and 1640 mg Vitamin K. Who needs calcium in milk if it wont be absorbed?
My main reason for posting this is so you guys could enjoy some more parsley :) Also, for further information on Osteoporosis, myths about protein and calcium requirements, see this link. :
