Cilantro is common and easily sourced fresh at most grocery stores. Not only does it taste great, cilantro is a natural and a super effective detoxifier especially for removing neurotoxins, like mercury, from our body. You can add it to salads, in dressings and dips (salsa is my favorite), it adds great
flavor to soups, even smoothies to gain some nutrients and to take advantage of its detoxification properties.

Cilantro (Coriandrum sativum L) belongs to the Apiaceae family, comprised of 3,700 species, more commonly known members are carrots, celery, and parsley. All parts of the plant can be consumed, but people more commonly use the fresh leaves and dried seeds in cooking. Cilantro has been a part of recipes around the globe for a very long time. A great source of antioxidants, adding cilantro to enhance the flavor of food may also urge people to use less salt reducing sodium intake. It’s rich in iron and magnesium which helps fight anemia, alleviates stomach gas and may help lower cholesterol!

Cilantro also offers vitamins C, provitamin A, K, as well as trace amounts of folate, potassium,
manganese, choline, beta-carotene, beta-cryptoxanthin, lutein and zeaxanthin.

There are other benefits to incorporating cilantro into your diet that you may not be aware of.

Anticancer effects
Some studies have also shown that cilantro has antibiotic and anti-inflammatory properties.
Cilantro’s cancer-fighting superpowers come from its abundance of antioxidants, which may help reduce the cellular damage that leads to cancer.

A 2019 study showed promising effects on prostate cancer cells. Thiscstudy showed that the herb reduced the expression of specific genes in cancer cells, cells became less invasive, demonstrated characteristics indicating they would not spread as quickly, and did not show as many signs of grouping together in colonies.

Reduced Pain and inflammation
Researchers investigated the effects on the central nervous system in a 2015 study and found cilantro (C. sativum) demonstrated analgesic properties. 3 doses of aqueous, ethanolic and chloroformic extracts were administered and results were significantly higher than saline group and effects were comparable to the effect of morphine.

Another study in 2016 looked at a group of 68 individuals who suffer migraines. Participants combined 1 teaspoon of coriander fruit syrup with their regular meds. The group experienced reduced severity, duration, and frequency of migraines compared to the control group.

Sun Damage (Skin)
In 2014 researchers looked at the ability of C. sativum extracts to protect the skin against ultraviolet B
(UVB) radiation damage. The results showed the potential of C. sativum to prevent skin photoaging or
reduce sun damage in the skin.

The authors of a 2014 study concluded that the oil does indeed have antifungal properties testing the
effects of an essential oil derived from the leaves of C. sativum on Candida albicans, a yeast commonly
causes of infection in humans.
