Coriander

Product Overview

Coriander has been used as a herbal digestive aid for thousands of years and modern science backs up its abilities. Coriander seeds were even found in the tomb of Ramesses II, maybe for use in the afterlife! Coriander is used widely in cooking and, rightly so, because it contains fibre, vitamins and minerals including calcium, iron, magnesium, sodium and potassium. This super herb also strengthens the stomach, can reduce fever and lower cholesterol levels, as well as having sedative properties to inhibit anxiety.

What is it used for?

  • Acts as an anxiolytic to calm anxiety, stress and depression
  • Coriander has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce joint swelling in rheumatoid arthritis
  • Apart from being rich in nutrients, Coriander has been shown to calm the stomach and aid indigestion but it’s maybe not as strong as alternatives such as Chamomile, and the seeds are stronger than the leaves
  • Coriander contains Linalool which can detox the liver
  • The seeds have hypoglycemic effects which can help control blood sugar levels

How to prepare

Coriander’s best attribute is its taste! It can be added to a huge variety of dishes, as leaves or seeds

To make an infusion add 1 teaspoon of crushed seeds to a cup of boiling water and steep for five minutes. You can enjoy this up to three times a day

For a warming, anti-bacterial, stomach-settler or to reduce a fever add a teaspoon of Coriander seeds to warm milk and honey

Cautions

  • Do not give Coriander infusions to any child under two years old
