Coriander Seed Oil ~ Powerful, Broad Range of Benefits!
Do you get the feeling that too many products are described as a “cure-all” – the panacea that soothes all ills and returns you to perfect health?
Is it the fruit of a mysterious tree from the Andes?
Is it a super-effective extract from algae in Korea?
How about something ancient… something that’s been used by indigenous cultures for thousands of years, tested by 200 generations?
When you use the leaves it’s called Cilantro, and when you use the seeds, it’s called Coriander. Now we have a special variation on a very old theme: cold-pressed Coriander Seed Oil.
It has a warm, sweet and spicy aroma and is well known in Mediterranean and Indian cuisine.
Coriander Seed Oil
Breaks Down Fat – Cholesterol and Body Fat
So many people have very serious health issues related to high cholesterol levels, like heart disease and stroke, often referred to as “silent killers” because the very first symptom can be fatal.
By breaking down fat, Coriander Seed Oil also helps your liver and gall bladder. A malfunctioning liver will affect you in many ways, especially your energy, your ability to think clearly, and the balance of your hormones. A stressed liver will make your muscles, ligaments and tendons tight, and joints stiff. Hot flashes and allergies are a signal that your liver is working beyond capacity. A healthy liver and gallbladder will help you avoid these and many other problems associated with aging.
So many people are fed-up with failing to lose weight.
Easier fat breakdown – with Coriander Seed Oil – can help to reduce your body fat and cellulite. And who does not need to lose a few pounds these days?
Helps Digestion ~ reduce gas, pain and cramping
If you’ve ever suffered with painful or smelly gas, then you really understand how it feels to be finally relieved of it. When gas does not pass, it can actually kill people if it moves upwards rather than downwards. Gas can cause excruciating pain in your whole belly, chest and even in your muscles.
One small teaspoon full of Coriander Seed Oil will eliminate excess gas in your system, and additional gases will not form either.
Alleviates Spasms ~ coughing, limbs, intestinal and nervous
Coriander Seed Oil alleviates all types of spasms so that you can relax in both body and mind.
- Do you frequently get muscle cramps with some sports and physical activities?
- Have you had jump legs at night – Restless Legs Syndrome?
- Do you get abdominal cramps from gas?
- Are you a nervy, short-fuse sort of a person?
- Have you had a relentless, spasm-type of cough that can keep you up at night?
Cleanses and Detoxifies Your Blood
Purify your blood by removing certain normal metabolic waste that’s produced by your body itself, and foreign toxins which get into your blood accidentally (heavy metals, environmental pollution). Gout is usually relieved by Coriander Seed Oil.
Powerful Against a Broad Range of Bacteria
Coriander’s use in foods and in clinical agents could prevent food-borne illnesses, and even treat antibiotic-resistant infections, according to the authors of a study published in the “Journal of Medical Microbiology”.
Researchers from the University of Beira Interior in Portugal tested Coriander Seed Oil against 12 bacterial strains (including Escherichia coli, Salmonella enterica, Bacillus cereus and Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus -MRSA) and all showed reduced growth – and most were killed – by solutions containing 1.6% Coriander Seed Oil or less!
Dr. Fernanda Domingues, who led the study explains how Coriander Seed Oil’s antibiotic effect works…
“The results indicate that Coriander Seed Oil damages the membrane surrounding the bacterial cell. This disrupts the barrier between the cell and its environment and inhibits essential processes including respiration, which ultimately leads to death of the bacterial cell.
In developed countries, up to 30% of the population suffers from food-borne illness each year. This research encourages the design of new food additives containing Coriander Seed Oil that would combat food-borne pathogens and prevent bacterial spoilage.
Coriander Seed Oil could also become a natural alternative to common antibiotics. We envisage the use of coriander in clinical drugs in the form of lotions, mouth rinses and even pills; to fight multi-drug-resistant bacterial infections that otherwise could not be treated. This would significantly improve people’s quality of life.”

Coriander Plays a Major Part in Ancient Medicine
Coriander Seed Oil is most well known in Mediterranean cuisine. It’s one of the 20 most-used essential oils in the world and is already used as a food additive.
Discovered by archeologists in Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamen’s tomb, Coriander has been traced back to 5,000 BC with a long history across the Mediterranean, Middle East, and Asia.
Used to treat “pox”, and with medicinal proprieties documented in Sanskrit and Greek writings, Coriander seeds have an impressive health-supporting reputation matched by very few.
- Coriander has traditionally been referred to as a glucose management plant.
- In India, it has traditionally been used for its anti-inflammatory properties.
