Health Benefits: Garlic lowers cholesterol levels and blood sugar which helps prevent heart attack and stroke. When crushed, raw cloves releases allicin, which has been shown to be a more potent antibiotic than penicillin and tetracycline.

Italian Parsley is loaded with nutrition. Parsley is a good source of vitamin K, A, folic acid, vitamin C, potassium, as well as fiber. It also contains flavonoids which makes it a strong antioxidant, thus helping reduce free radicals and inflammation. Parsley has iron in it and is a natural breath freshener as well. It's best to add it during the last few moments of cooking for the best flavor.
