2. Bones and Teeth

Parsnips are good for healthy bones and teeth. They are rich in calcium and contain manganese and zinc, which are necessary for absorbing that calcium. Vitamin K aids in keeping bones and teeth healthy and preventing osteoporosis by further enhancing calcium absorption. Manganese is part of the process of forming and repairing bone and cartilage.
