Parsley is one of the world’s most widely grown and used herbs.
While it’s not a health or beauty powerhouse, it’s packed with antioxidants, fiber, and other nutrients, and can be a natural treatment for a variety of skin conditions.
Now, a team of researchers is looking into whether or not it’s also an anti-inflammatory.
The results of their study will be published in the upcoming Journal of the American College of Dermatology.
Dr. R.K. Patel, a dermatologist and professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and his colleagues were interested in whether or no parsley is as effective as other plants against skin irritation and inflammation.
Parsleys are rich in antioxidants, including thujone, which is an antioxidant that helps defend against free radicals.
When the plant is broken down into its components, thujones are broken down by bacteria and can cause skin irritation, according to Patel.
The researchers then isolated the compounds that make up thujonisulfonate and thujonate, and compared them with the compounds found in other herbs, like lavender and parsley.
The compound in parsley was more effective against inflammation and irritation, the team found.
P. pumilio is a common plant used in Asia, but in recent years, it has become increasingly popular in the US.
Patel and Scott R. Gorman, an assistant professor of dermatology at Johns Hopkins and a member of the team, decided to conduct a study to see if parsley, which has been used for centuries, is as good a source of anti-inflammatories as the other herbs in the study.
In their study, the researchers tested the anti-oxidants and other compounds in the four parsley varieties grown in the lab.
The study was part of a larger project that involved the Johns-Hopkins College of Veterinary Medicine, the University of Chicago Medical Center, and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) in the United States.
In addition to looking at anti-invasive properties, the study looked at the effects of the parsley plant on inflammatory markers.
The team used a test called an interleukin-12 (IL-12) assay, which measures the amount of inflammation in the skin.
The test measures how much IL-12 a person is exposed to.
The levels of IL-11, the most common inflammatory marker, are highest when people have been exposed to a lot of pollution and when they’re in poor health.
The scientists found that the parsleys tested in the researchers’ study had very low levels of inflammation.
The next step is to conduct more studies to see whether the parshes have any of the same effects as other herbs.
Patel said, “It’s a very interesting study that we’re conducting in collaboration with the Johns Johns Hopkins School of Veterinary medicine.
We hope to look into how parsley actually might work and what might make it so effective.”
The research team is currently evaluating the compounds in other parsley plants, including the species of Parsley Perennial and P. leucofolia, which also have anti-tumor properties.
