The surprising health benefits of Coriander
Coriander was traditionally used to treat gastrointestinal problems, due to its antioxidant and antibiotic properties. It was also an effective remedy for respiratory ailments and loss of appetite and memory.
Coriander seeds contain beneficial acids like linoleic acid, oleic acid, palmitic acid, stearic acid and ascorbic acid (vitamin C). These compounds are very effective in reducing cholesterol levels in the blood.
The essential oils found in coriander contain components, such as borneol and linalool, which aid in digestion, proper functioning of the liver, and bonding of bowels.
As a rich source of calcium, it is of great value for people who want to protect their bones.
Coriander positively helps lower blood pressure. By enhancing the interaction of calcium ions and acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter in the peripheral and central nervous system, relaxes blood vessel tension, thereby reducing the chances of a number of cardiovascular conditions, including heart attacks and strokes.
