Coriander And Its Healing Power

Coriander germinating

About Coriander

Coriander (Coriandrum sativum) is an aromatic Mediterranean plant, which comes from the  Apiaceae family which contains 3,700 species, including parsley, carrots, and celery. All parts of the Coriandrum sativum plant are edible, its seeds and leaves taste different. While coriander seeds have an earthy flavor, the leaves are pungent and citrus-like, some people find that they taste like soap.

For those cilantro-haters for whom the plant tastes like soap, the issue is genetic. These people have a variation in a group of olfactory-receptor genes that allows them to strongly perceive the soapy-flavored aldehydes in cilantro leaves. This genetic quirk is usually only found in a small percent of the population, though it varies geographically (To those of you who were cursed with the DNA-coded dislike for cilantro, don’t worry, most of cilantro’s health benefits can be found in other herbs as well.)

The word coriander can be used to describe the entire plant: leaves, stems, seeds, and all. But when speaking of coriander, most people are referring to the spice produced from the seeds of the plant. The leaves of the plant are commonly called cilantro, which comes from the Spanish word for coriander, or Chinese parsley, the roots also appear in culinary use as a pungent addition to Thai curries. Coriander grows as a native plant around the world, including Europe, Asia, Africa and in the Americas. 

The plant produces a slender hollow stem 1 to 2.5 inches high with fragrant bipinnate leaves. The small flowers are pink or whitish and are borne in umbel clusters. The fruit is a small dry schizocarp consisting of two semiglobular fruits joined on the commisural, or inner, sides, giving the appearance of a single, smooth, nearly globular fruit about 0.2 inch in diameter. The yellowish brown fruits have a mild fragrance and has a taste similar to a combination of lemon peel and sage.

Coriander seeds have a pleasing lemony flavor and floral aroma. The flavor goes very well with cumin and many recipes include equal amounts of the spices together. The plant’s leaves and ripened seeds taste different and they cannot be replaced for each other. Fresh cilantro tastes pungent, and to some people, it tastes soapy.

How is cilantro cooked?

The whole seeds are sometimes used in pickling and brining. Coriander seeds are usually toasted and ground before used; otherwise, they can have a hard texture to chew. Ground coriander is used as a spice in dishes like curry and baked goods. Dry roast them in a pan or in the oven at a low temperature, then use a spice grinder to produce the ground coriander.

Uses of cilantro:

  1. Helps lower blood sugar- Coriander seeds, extract and oils might help lower blood sugar. People who have low blood sugar or take diabetes medication should practice caution with coriander because it’s so effective in lowering blood sugar. A study in rats with obesity and high blood sugar found that a certain dose of coriander seed extract decreased blood sugar which is similar to the effects of the blood sugar medication glibenclamide (gylburide). Animal studies suggest that coriander seeds reduce blood sugar by promoting enzyme activity that helps remove sugar from the blood.
  2. Immune-boosting antioxidants- Coriander offers several antioxidants, which prevent cellular damage caused by free radicals. Its antioxidants have been shown to fight inflammation in your body, compounds such as; terpinene, quercetin, and tocopherols, which could have anticancer, immune-boosting, and neuroprotective effects, according to animal studies
  3. Benefits heart health- Coriander extract appears to act as a diuretic, helping your body flush excess sodium and water. Which will aid in lowering your blood pressure. In populations that consume large amounts of coriander, among other spices, rates of heart disease tend to be lower, especially compared with people on the Western diet, which packs more salt and sugar.
  4. Promotes digestion and gut health- Oil extracted from coriander seeds may accelerate and promote healthy digestion. A 8-week study in 32 people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) found that 30 drops of a coriander-containing herbal medication taken three times daily significantly decreased abdominal pain, bloating, and discomfort, compared with a placebo group.
  5. Protects your skin- Coriander has several skin benefits, including mild rashes like dermatitis. In one study, its extract failed to treat diaper rash in infants on its own but could be used alongside other soothing compounds as an alternative treatment. Other studies note that the antioxidants in coriander extract help to prevent cellular damage that leads to accelerated skin aging, as well as skin damage from ultraviolet B radiation. Furthermore, many people utilize coriander leaf juice for skin conditions like acne, pigmentation, oiliness, or dryness.

Be a Giver, Not a Taker

The happiest people are those who give, and give generously.
Try to give more, rather than to try to gather more or collect more.
Whether we give of our time, our fortune, or in some other manner, I believe there is little we could do to make a greater impact on others lives, or our happiness.😎

Happiness is meant to be shared, but sometimes the happiest people are too busy living to tell the rest of the world how they got there. Talking about how great life is can also quickly go past humble to just bragging, especially around others who may not be having the best of times.🤔`

One Love ❤️
