View Full Version : parsley has tons of b12
02-12-2006, 05:18 AM
i had read this is gillian mackeiths book last year but i have just noticed that now on whfoods.com it shows parsley as having higher b12 than meat!!
now im not sure if this is new but check it out :D
seems that no one has to worry now if you see it says only two tbs of parsely gives you like a load of b12. and i love parsely i chew it so much lol

maybe ive just been dumb not to notice but from now on im eating loads more parsley lol

me again not sure if you already know this
but peppermint leaves cilantro also have lot's of b12
im sure this is a new discovery as i have looked at these foods before and it enevr mentioned b12 before

Thanks for the good resource. Be sure you read the safety precautions also. Some people will not be able to process the oxalates in parsley and don't eat if you need calcium as it interferes with calcium absortion.

I use Nutrition Data for a lookup of nutrients, and parsley on that site has 0 b-12.
What's going on?

i noticed that to jackie but i know for a fact this has only recently been added so maybe it will take a bit longer. i remembered only last year mushrooms had b12 but now all these herbs are propping up :D i mean god gave us everything we need right so we shouldn't really worry for all we know certain vegan foods will suddenly have all the zinc we need etc

thanks for the helpful info. i have MS and b12 is said to be something we've been found to be deficient in, along with vitamin d. fortunately, i love my greens, including parsley, so i'll have even more reason to look forward to eating them.
any idea about vitamin d sources?

I've heard that raspberries and strawberries etc have b12 too.

Apparently that site (WHF) is one of few sources that claims parsely has b12, as far as I am aware, and I wouldn't rely on it.
If you compare the nutritional info on that site with certain foods and compare it with official sources you'll notice a lot of discrepancies.

very funny! but you're right! in fact, when i drive to and from work, i used to hate driving "into the sun" since it's pretty blinding at times, but now i embrace it and actually love it. attitude is a powerful medicine, too.
