Rich in Nutrients
Parsley contains several important nutrients, such as vitamins A, K, and C. It’s also a good source of the minerals calcium, iron, magnesium, and potassium.

Calories: 2
Vitamin A: 12% of the Reference Daily Intake (RDI)
Vitamin C: 16% of the RDI
Vitamin K: 154% of the RDI

May Improve Blood Sugar
Elevated blood sugar levels can increase your risk of conditions like diabetes or metabolic syndrome. Some rat studies found parsley to effectively reduce blood sugar levels.

Can Benefit Heart Health
Heart conditions like heart attacks and strokes are the leading cause of death worldwide. An unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, smoking, and high alcohol intake can all contribute to heart disease. Parsley contains carotenoid antioxidants and vitamin C — both of which have been shown to benefit heart health.

May Aid Kidney Health
Parsley may help keep your kidneys healthy by fighting inflammation and reducing high blood pressure and your risk of kidney stones.

Other Potential Benefits
Parsley may improve your health in the following ways as well:

Antibacterial properties. Parsley contains essential oils, including apiol and myristicin, which have antibacterial effects and fight potentially harmful bacteria, such as Staphylococcus aureus.
May benefit bone health. Parsley is rich in vitamin K, potassium, magnesium, and calcium — all of which are essential to bone health.
May boost immunity. Research shows that apigenin — an antioxidant in parsley — regulates immune function by reducing inflammation and preventing cellular damage.
May enhance liver health. Studies in rats with diabetes found that parsley extract may prevent liver damage, enhance liver function, and boost antioxidant levels.


1. Reduces Appetite and Hunger Levels
A high-protein diet reduces hunger, helping you eat fewer calories. This is caused by the improved function of weight-regulating hormones.
If you need to lose weight or belly fat, consider replacing some of your carbs and fats with protein. It can be as simple as making your potato or rice serving smaller while adding a few extra bites of meat or fish.

2. Increases Muscle Mass and Strength
Protein is the building block of your muscles.Muscle is made primarily of protein. High protein intake can help you gain muscle mass and strength while reducing muscle loss during weight loss.

3. Good for Your Bones
People who eat more protein tend to have better bone health and a much lower risk of osteoporosis and fractures as they get older.

4. Reduces Cravings and Desire for Late-Night Snacking
Eating more protein may reduce cravings and desire for late-night snacking. Merely having a high-protein breakfast may have a powerful effect.

5. Boosts Metabolism and Increases Fat Burning
High protein intake may boost your metabolism significantly, helping you burn more calories throughout the day.

6. Lowers Your Blood Pressure
Several studies note that higher protein intake can lower blood pressure. Some studies also demonstrate improvements in other risk factors for heart disease.

7. Helps Maintain Weight Loss
Upping your protein intake can not only help you lose weight but keep it off in the long term.

8. Does Not Harm Healthy Kidneys
While protein can cause harm to people with kidney problems, it doesn’t affect those with healthy kidneys.

9. Helps Your Body Repair Itself After Injury
Protein can help your body repair after it has been injured. This makes perfect sense, as it forms the main building blocks of your tissues and organs.

10. Helps You Stay Fit as You Age
One of the consequences of aging is that your muscles gradually weaken. Eating plenty of protein can help reduce the muscle loss associated with aging.


What is bone marrow?
Bone marrow is a type of spongy tissue in the center of bones. It’s most concentrated in the spine, hip, and thigh bones.

It contains stem cells that develop into red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets, which are involved in oxygen transportation, immune function, and blood clotting.

The bone marrow of animals like cows, lambs, caribou, and moose is commonly consumed in many types of cuisine.

It has a rich, slightly sweet flavor with a smooth texture and is often served alongside toast or used as a base for soup.

Bone marrow can also be used to make bone broth or spread over bread, roasted vegetables, or meat dishes.

Bone marrow nutrition facts
Bone marrow contains a good amount of calories and fat, as well as small amounts of nutrients like protein and vitamin B12.

For example, one tablespoon (14 grams) of raw caribou bone marrow provides:

Calories: 110
Total fat: 12 grams
Protein: 1 gram
Vitamin B12: 7% of the Reference Daily Intake (RDI)
Riboflavin: 6% of the RDI
Iron: 4% of the RDI
Vitamin E: 2% of the RDI
Phosphorus: 1% of the RDI
Thiamine: 1% of the RDI
Vitamin A: 1% of the RDI

Health benefits of bone marrow
Though no studies directly evaluate the effects of consuming bone marrow, plenty of research on the health benefits of its components is available.

In particular, collagen, glycine, glucosamine, and conjugated linoleic acid have been studied extensively for their potential effects on health.

1. Supports joint function
2. Decreases inflammation
3. Promotes skin health

Though research is limited on the health effects of bone marrow itself, studies show that many of its components could support joint function, decrease inflammation, and promote skin health.

  “A thinker sees his own actions as experiments and questions--as attempts to find out something. Success and failure are for him answers above all.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

  “Don't aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one's personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one's surrender to a person other than oneself. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long-run—in the long-run, I say!—success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think about it”
― Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning

  “Anyone whose goal is 'something higher' must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves.”
― Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

  “Imagining the future is a kind of nostalgia. (...) You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you'll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.”
― John Green, Looking for Alaska

  “When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”
― Henri Nouwen, Out of Solitude: Three Meditations on the Christian Life

  “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
― Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of "A Course in Miracles"
