Coriander: The 10 best benefits PLUS tips

  1. Coriander is often used during cooking and to flavor dishes. But did you know that cilantro not only tastes good, but also offers numerous health benefits? For example, the green herb is known to aid digestion, relieve menstrual symptoms, purify the skin and reduce blood sugar problems.

  1. But that's not all, as cilantro is also known to boost eye health. So don't limit yourself to savory dishes when you use coriander, but also use it, for example, in salads and smoothies, where it really comes into its own due to the multitude of enzymes.

  1. In this article I would like to delve deeper into the health benefits of cilantro and its variety of uses!

  1. Let's get started ...

1. Healthy skin

  1. Coriander contains a component called cineole. This is an oil naturally present in cilantro. This component in combination with linoleic acid counteracts inflammation and thus provides relief from rheumatic diseases. What these components mainly ensure is that the swelling that is associated with rheumatism and other inflammation-based conditions decreases. In addition, coriander helps to wick away excess moisture, which also helps with swelling. Coriander thus helps you to combat the pain and makes your skin look healthy again.

2. Healthy cholesterol

  1. Linoleic acid, as well as other acids present in cilantro, have been shown to be effective in controlling high blood cholesterol. They lower bad cholesterol by cleaning the lining of the veins, and thus can help prevent arteriosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. Also very important is that the good cholesterol goes up, which provides natural protection against cardiovascular disease.

3. Healthy digestion

  1. Coriander contains essential oils that have an effect on your digestion. This stimulates your digestion and improves the function of your liver. This is particularly effective if you are suffering from diarrhea. Diarrhea caused by microbes or fungi can be effectively controlled with coriander, as the components in this herb have antibacterial effects.

  1. Coriander has also been shown to be effective in combating stomach cramps, vomiting and nausea. For pregnant women this can offer a solution and is also a natural alternative to medication that is often not effective for pregnant women.

  1. As new bioactive compounds are found in cilantro, research continues to expand and more and more new conditions are revealed that cilantro could help with.

4. Healthy blood pressure

  1. Research has shown that the blood pressure of patients suffering from hypertension can be effectively lowered through regular consumption of coriander. This effect is caused by an interaction of two different components in cilantro that reduce the tension of the veins and thus lower the risk of cardiovascular disease.

5. Anemia

  1. Anemia is generally caused by low iron levels in the blood. This may be because the patient is not consuming enough iron, but it may also be due to the patient's inability to properly assimilate the iron in the diet. Coriander not only improves the way the body absorbs iron, but it also contains a large amount of iron itself.

Coriander not only improves the way the body absorbs iron, it also contains a large amount of iron itself.

  1. Anemia can cause extreme fatigue, shortness of breath, heart palpitations and even a decrease in mental function.

6. Free from hay fever

  1. Do you suffer from hay fever or other allergies? Then consider consuming cilantro on a daily basis. Numerous studies have shown that coriander has a strong reducing effect on allergies. Coriander oil, in particular, is often used when coming into contact with potential allergens to prevent possible allergic reactions. For example, cilantro prevents the throat from swelling when you have come into contact with a personal allergen. Most people suffer from an allergy, but often do not know. In this case, too, it is therefore very useful to protect yourself against possible allergic reactions by means of a regular consumption of coriander. A perfect way to do this is to have a smoothie every morning with a handful of fresh cilantro.

7. Strong bones and teeth

  1. It was instilled in us earlier that calcium is a requirement of strong bones and teeth. Coriander is particularly rich in calcium and also contains other essential minerals that are important for the growth of strong bones as well as preventing the weakening of bones. This happens, for example, in osteoporosis. However, a small amount of cilantro can already powerfully protect your bones.

  1. The calcium-rich part is mainly located in the center of the coriander plant, so try to mainly consume this part.

8. Relief for menstrual complaints

  1. Coriander stimulates the production of important hormones, which in turn promotes hormone balance. This also affects your menstrual cycle and the amount of pain you experience during this cycle. So try to consume enough cilantro, especially before your period, to relieve pain and, more importantly, prevent it.

9. Healthy eyes

  1. Coriander, especially in its raw state, contains a wealth of antioxidants, including phosphorus, vitamin C and other essential oils. Phosphorus in particular has been shown to be very powerful in the prevention of eye diseases and also reduces stress on the eyes. In addition, the green leaves are also high in beta-carotene, which has an effect on not only eye disorders, but your overall health.

10. Prevent Diabetes

  1. As mentioned before, coriander has a stimulating effect on hormone production. Since insulin is also a hormone, its production can therefore be stimulated through the consumption of coriander. Because the pancreas increases the production of insulin, the absorption of sugar in the blood is improved. This is an extremely powerful effect, especially for people with diabetes or prediabetes. This reduces the risk of high blood sugar. But the opposite is also true. Low blood sugar can also be combated in this way.

  1. In addition, cilantro also promotes other metabolic functions that help you stay healthy and slim.

Finally ...

  1. Coriander is a very powerful spice, not only in taste, but also in the health effects it has. Of course, almost all vegetables and herbs are healthy, but there are some that are so particularly rich in nutrients that they can be seen as a real superfood.

  1. Coriander is one of them.

  1. So try to have at least one serving of cilantro every day. As you can see, this green herb also tastes delicious in smoothies!
