Health Benefits of Coriander

Below are some of the medicinal properties of coriander:

- Coriander is a valuable herb in treating digestive disorders. One or two teaspoons of coriander juice, added to fresh buttermilk, is highly beneficial in treating indigestion, nausea, dysentery, hepatitis and ulcerative colitis. It is also helpful in typhoid fever.

Dry coriander treats diarrhea and chronic dysentery, as well as being useful in acidity. Chutney made from dry coriander, green chillies, grated coconut, ginger and black grapes without seeds are a remedy for abdominal pain due to indigestion.

- Regular drinking of coriander water helps lower blood cholesterol as it is a good diuretic and stimulates the kidneys. It is prepared by boiling dry seeds of coriander and straining the decoction after cooling.

- Coriander seeds check excessive menstrual flow. Six grams of the seeds should be boiled in half a liter of water, till only half the water remains. Sugar should be added to it and taken when it is still warm. The patient gets relief after taking the medicine for 3 or 4 days.

- A decoction prepared from freshly dried coriander is an excellent eye-wash in conjunctivitis. It relieves burning and reduces pain and swelling.

- One teaspoon fresh coriander juice, mixed with 1 or 2 seeds of banana, given once daily regularly, for a week is a very effective preventive measure against small pox. It is believed that putting fresh leaf juice in the eyes, during an attack of small pox, prevents eye damage.

- A teaspoon for coriander juice, mixed with a pinch of turmeric powder, is an effective remedy for pimples, blackheads and dry skin. The mixture should be applied to the face, after washing it thoroughly, every night before retiring.
