Coriander Herb Health Benefits

Coriander also known as cilantro is an herb with numerous benefits. The herb contains many notable plant derived chemical compounds that are known to have disease preventing and health-promoting properties.

 

It is a perennial plant but grown as an annual which requires well-draining fertile soil supplemented with warm summer climates to flourish.

 

The plant reaches about 1 to 2 feet in height and features dark green, hairless, soft leaves that vary in shape; broad-lobed near the base, and slender and feathery higher up near its flowering stems.

 

The herb is a good source of minerals like potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, and magnesium.

 

Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps control heart rate and blood pressure.

 

Coriander is high in iron content, which directly helps people who suffer from anaemia.

 

Low iron content in the blood can result in shortness of breath, heart palpitations, extreme fatigue, and a decrease in cognitive functions.

 

Iron also benefits proper functions of other organ systems, increases energy and strength, and promote the health of bones.

 

As a rich source of calcium, coriander is of great value for people who want to protect the integrity of their bones.

 

Calcium and other essential minerals found in coriander are integral components of bone re-growth and durability, as well as in the prevention of bone degradation so commonly associated with debilitating diseases like osteoporosis.

 

Adding even a small amount of coriander to your diet can help to keep your bones healthy and strong for years to come.

 

Coriander juice is beneficial in treating dysentery, colitis, indigestion and hepatitis.

 

When mixed with pinch of turmeric powder, it serves as a powerful remedy against blackheads and pimples.

 

Coriander contains powerful antioxidants that protect the body from the damage caused by free radicals.

 

Fresh coriander leaves are a rich source of carotenoids. It has been shown that 125 ml of fresh coriander leaf juice contain almost as much beta-carotene as 250 ml of broccoli juice.
