Chinese Parsley (Cilantro)

Cilantro/Coriander - Cilantro, also known as Chinese parsley, produces both cilantro leaves and coriander seeds. Cilantro leaves are rich in calcium, iron, carotenes, and vitamin C. Eaten in large daily amounts, cilantro is said to mobilize mercury and other toxic metals out of the central nervous system. Cilantro also guards against skin cancer, increases HDL (good cholesterol) levels and decreases LDL (bad cholesterol) levels, and stimulates the endocrine glands. It’s a good source of iron and magnesium, thus is helpful in relieving anemia. Cilantro is also good in helping with flatulence, liver health, nausea, and urinary tract infections; it eases hormonal mood swings, and helps to reduce menstrual cramping. It also reduces bad breath. This is by no means an exhaustive list of benefits; the list of healing properties goes on and on.
