Pack With Important Nutrients
Rich in Antioxidants
Parsnips are very nutrient-dense and also a great source of antioxidants. Antioxidants are substances that promote good health by preventing oxidative stress and minimizing cell damage. Increasing your antioxidant consumption may also help you avoid developing chronic diseases including cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. Ascorbic acid (vitamin C), a water-soluble vitamin that is also a potent antioxidant, is particularly abundant in parsnips.
High in Soluble and Insoluble Fiber
According to one study, ingesting fiber increased the frequency of stools in patients who were constipated, suggesting that it may also help with regularity. Additionally, studies have indicated that fiber helps with blood sugar regulation, lowers cholesterol levels, lowers blood pressure, and lowers inflammatory marker levels.
