Its leaves are known as Cilantro; the seeds are called Coriander. They pack the same medicinal benefits: both ease indigestion and prevent wound infection. Coriander has a long history as a digestive aid. In Egypt, the seeds have been found in pharaohs’ tombs, presumably to prevent indigestion in the afterlife. Coriander has been used as a stomach soother for both adults and colicky babies. Its wound healing benefits were first discovered by the ancient Romans, who used both the leaves and seeds to preserve meats.

Coriander contains an antioxidant that helps prevent animal fats from turning rancid. It also contains substances that kill meat-spoiling bacteria and fungi. These same substances in Cilantro also prevent infection in wounds. Coriander has been shown to improve tummy troubles of all kinds, from indigestion to flatulence to diarrhea. Both Cilantro and Coriander have been shown to settle the stomach, even colic in infants. Cilantro and Coriander contain substances that kill certain bacteria and fungi, thereby preventing infections from developing in wounds. Sprinkle some Coriander Seed on minor cuts and scrapes after thoroughly washing the injured area with soap and water. Intriguing new studies suggest that Cilantro and Coriander have anti-inflammatory effects. Since the pain of arthritis is caused by inflammation, Coriander Seed may be very helpful with arthritic pain.

Compounds in Coriander Help Balance Digestion

  1. Borneol: This compound, found in coriander, helps to keep your digestive system balanced, even if you may have eaten some questionable food.
  2. Citronellol: Another compound in coriander, citronellol helps promote a healthy balance of bacteria in your body. If your stomach is upset this compound can help tremendously.

  4. Camphene: An analgesic, camphene also keeps your microbiome in balance, and is an antioxidant.

  6. Cineole (eucalyptol): This is a compound found in coriander that supports joint comfort. Stomach upset can often lead to pain in other areas of the body, so this can help if that is a common symptom for you.

Coriander also performs other actions in the body that help you recover from occasional stomach problems more quickly and with greater comfort.

~Hippocrates, a.k.a. The Father of Medicine

Discovered by archeologists in Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamen’s tomb, Coriander (also known as Cilantro) has been traced back to 5,000 BC. with a long history across the Mediterranean, Middle East, and Asia spanning thousands of years and playing a major part in ancient medicine. It was cited to cure smallpox, and its medicinal proprieties were documented in Sanskrit and Greek writings. Coriander seeds have an impressive health-supporting reputation matched by very few, even today.

  • In Europe, Coriander has traditionally been referred to as an anti-diabetic plant.
  • In India, it has traditionally been used for its anti-inflammatory properties.
  • In the United States, Coriander is quickly gaining popularity for its cholesterol-lowering effects.

Coriander is rich in vital nutrients that exhibit anti-inflammatory properties, earning it a title of a gateway to health. Coriander has potent liver supporting properties, thanks to an excellent profile of phytonutrients and bioflavonoids. Coriander is a great source of minerals potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, and magnesium, as well as vitamins including folic acid, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin A, beta carotene, and a generous dose of vitamin C- all essential for optimal health.

Coriander Oil helps vitamin D

Vitamin D, no doubt is a vital part of everybody’s daily regimen, but relying on it alone to protect you from rapid aging can be a mistake:

  • Most supplements do NOT get absorbed properly
  • Vitamin D requires Vitamin K for proper synthesis
  • Vitamin D is a prohormone. (it requires sufficient healthy cholesterol to produce a usable form)
  • Vitamin D is FAT-soluble (absorption suffers from the absence of lipid-fats to transport & carry INTO your cells)

Coriander Oil Solves Vitamin-D Problems

Because vitamin-D is fat soluble, it needs healthy fats to support it. Coriander seeds are loaded with essential fatty acids and aromatic oils. In fact, coriander contains 28.4% of seed weight in total lipids! There is ample evidence to suggest that vitamin A and K are necessary for proper assimilation of vitamin D. One serving of coriander contains roughly 400% the RDV of vitamin-K and ample amounts of vitamin A.

Common toxic metals like mercury, lead, aluminum and cadmium impair your body’s ability to produce sufficient vitamin D. Coriander oil has shown to aid in the removal of mercury, cadmium, aluminum and lead from the body! Getting natural vitamin D from the sun is surely the best way, yet poses great skin cancer risks if you are antioxidant and/or omega 3 deficient!

And actually, omega-3 fat deficiencies are a far more significant risk factor for deadly skin cancers than sun exposure! Coriander oil provides you with a great source of omegas and antioxidants! For omega 3 boosting power, coriander oil has been shown to increase the natural bioconversion of alpha-linoleic acid to EPA and DHA in animal studies.

Blood Sugar Regulation

In 2009, type 2 diabetes affected 285 million worldwide. Today, in 2014, it affects 365 million people worldwide! Due the stimulating effect of Coriander oil on the endocrine glands, the secretion of insulin is increased from the pancreas, increasing the insulin levels in the blood. This regulates the proper assimilation and absorption of sugar and results in healthier blood sugar levels.

Removes Heavy Metals

Metal toxicity is a known contributor to chronic diseases such as Crohn’s disease, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s. Coriander has shown to be a potent mobilizer of mercury, cadmium, lead and aluminum from the bones and central nervous system.

It is also the only known substance to get inside entry to the cell dislodging toxic metals attached to cell organelles, from within the nucleus of the cell and actually reversing the DNA damage that had been caused! Coriander oil helps with the secretion of enzymes and digestive juices in the stomach, thus stimulating peristaltic motion, and overall digestion. And also because of its antioxidant, antifungal, and antibiotic effects, coriander oil has shown to help increase absorption in the stomach.

Because of its powerful anti-fungal properties, coriander has been proven to be effective at killing Candida albicans overgrowth and any accompanying digestive invaders. This promotes the proliferation of healthy gut bacteria and improves immune system function. Consuming coriander oil daily reduces the amount of damaged fats (lipid peroxides) in the cell membranes. Studies have shown it to lower bad cholesterol levels, and increase good cholesterol levels. A study in rats demonstrated that coriander’s combination of linoleic acid, oleic acid, palmitic acid, stearic acid and ascorbic acid (vitamin-C) are effective in also reducing cholesterol deposits along the inner walls of the arteries and veins.

Coriander oil consumption has been shown to reduce blood pressure in patients suffering from hypertension. Coriander contains coriandrol, a substance used to treat liver cancer. When combined with a healthy diet, Coriander is believed to be effective in helping to prevent certain cancers such as liver, breast and colon cancer. Coriander oil has shown DRAMATIC results against all major food-borne illness! Researchers from the University of Beira Interior in Portugal report that oil extracted from coriander seeds can kill bacteria related to food-borne diseases.

Of the 12 tested strains, every bacteria strain showed reduced growth, and most were destroyed completely.
