What Miraculous Coriander (Dhania) Plant Does To Your Body


1. May help lower blood sugar 

Coriander seeds, extract, and oils may all aid in the reduction of blood sugar levels. Because coriander is so efficient at decreasing blood sugar, it should be used with caution by people who have low blood sugar or who take diabetes medication (1Trusted Source) Coriander seeds lower blood sugar through increasing enzyme activity, which aids in the removal of sugar from the bloodstream (2) A single dose of coriandear seed extract (9.1 mg per pound of body weight or 20 mg per kg) reduced blood sugar by 4 mmol/L in 6 hours in rats with obesity and elevated blood sugar, according to a study.

2. Rich in immune-boosting antioxidants 

Coriander is high in antioxidants, which assist to protect cells from harm caused by free radicals. These compounds include terpinene, quercetin, and tocopherols, which have anticancer, immune-boosting, and neuroprotective effects. In a test tube investigation, the antioxidants in coriander seed extract were found to reduce inflammation and slow the growth of lung, prostate, breast, and colon cancer cells.

3. May benefit heart health

Coriander extract appears to work as a diuretic, assisting in the removal of excess sodium and water from the body. It's possible that this will lower your blood pressure and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels. Heart disease rates are lower in populations that consume substantial amounts of coriander, among other spices. A diet high in spices appears to be linked to a lower incidence of the disease.

4. May protect brain health

The anti-inflammatory effects of coriander may protect against brain diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and multiple sclerosis. Coriander extract is nearly as efficient as Diazepam, a prominent anxiety medicine, in lowering symptoms of this illness, according to animal research. Coriander leaves boosted mice's memory, implying that the herb could be used to treat Alzheimer's disease.
