Persil, petroselinum

Résumé

Outre un apport nutritionnel non négligeable, la feuille de persil s’avère antiradicalaire et alcalinisante. Particulièrement utile à la digestion, le persil intervient dans la détoxication et peut s’avérer utile au pléthorique, à la chimio prévention ou à la femme. On en limitera l’apport en cas de traitement par antivitamine K, de prise de barbiturique ou d’antalgique ou en cas de cancer du sein estrogénodépendant.

Abstract

Besides having significant nutritional value, parsley also exhibits antioxidant and neutralising properties. Particularly useful for digestion, parsley can be used in detoxification and may be useful in relieving bloating, as a chemopreventive agent or for women. Its intake should be limited in cases of vitamin K treatment, when taking barbiturates or analgesics, or if diagnosed with oestrogen-dependent breast cancer.
