In an ideal world, we would get all of the nutrients we need from food. But there are many reasons why, even with a clean vegetable-packed diet, you may not be receiving all the nutrients your body needs. Dietary supplements cover a broad category of vitamins, minerals, herbs, and more that can be consumed to support overall health

We're self-proclaimed wellness aficionados. We know nutrient-rich food is key to helping us feel, look, and perform our best. We're obsessed with clean beauty, gua sha, and acupuncture. We each have our own workout routine during the week. And one of our absolute favorite things to do is try all the self-care and cutting-edge wellness treatments. We've tried cryotherapy, halotherapy, and vitamin IVs. We're proud to add 'sweating' to our list of go-to things for self-care.

Ah, the best laid plans. We all make promises to ourselves at the beginning of a new year, optimistically looking forward to a clean slate and a fresh start. I personally love the feeling of starting anew, but this year (after many past New Year’s resolutions made and forgotten), I’m a bit more in tune with how to be successful meeting my goals.
So bring it on 2019! Here are my 3 biggest goals in the new year and what I’m doing to commit to myself and my community, personally and professionally.

Want to supercharge your mood? Look at what you’re eating. Food is an important - but often overlooked - piece of the puzzle for managing stress. The food you eat can have a direct impact not just on things like anxiety, depression, or Seasonal Affective Disorder, but even on your everyday mood. Eliminating inflammatory ingredients like gluten, dairy, and sugar can be a great place to start, but you also need to be sure you’re getting adequate stress-busting nutrients.
As the end of the year rapidly approaches, we may find ourselves with deadlines at work, multiple travel plans, more interaction with family members, and a surfeit of social opportunities. But there are a few relatively simple ways we can lower stress levels and minimize negative symptoms.

Properly hydrating your body can address a plethora of health issues - from chronic headaches, brain fog, and fatigue to weight gain, gut issues, and autoimmune conditions. You’ve heard the age-old advice: Drink 8 glasses of water a day. But is that really the best way to hydrate your body?

Step one to getting the best skin ever: Eat superfoods that nourish from the inside out with antioxidants, fatty acids, fiber, vitamins and minerals. It’s simple, yet fundamentally true advice. But there’s another level to superfoods. Their superpowers need not be relegated to salads and smoothies – they can feed skin from the outside, too.

We are firm believers that there is more to weight loss and true health than calories in versus calories out.

We checked in with Mia Rigen, our wellness partner, New York City based Nutritionist and founder of RASA, on alternative ways to measure your health - no scales or calorie counting required.
With the summer at its peak, we know that hydration is key when going about these hot, summer days. That’s why we’re sharing the recipe for our Coconut Watermelon Chia Pudding on the Parsley Health blog.
Despite the title, this is no ordinary diet book that promises to hold the secret to losing weight fast. Instead, James’ book is a much deeper dive into four archetypes of women. Each have different sources for their self-worth, which in turn influence their behavior around food, their hormones, and where their bodies tend to store fat.
Hormones influence your weight, energy levels, digestion, fertility, and metabolism. If you’ve been feeling anxious or depressed, experiencing brain fog or fatigue, or dealing with bloating or PMS, your body might be telling you to look to your hormones. Simple changes in your daily food routine and lifestyle can have a big impact.
