Cilantro is one of my favorite herbs. It's not just a garnish—it has a lot to offer! Here are some of the health benefits of cilantro, which you can find in most grocery stores.
Antioxidants are important for your health. They can help prevent cancer, heart disease and premature aging.
Cilantro is rich in antioxidants that work to protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are molecules that damage cells and cause inflammation throughout the body. Antioxidants help reduce free radical production by neutralizing them before they can do any damage; this helps you feel younger than you really are!
Could help fight anxiety
Cilantro has been shown to increase the levels of catecholamines, serotonin and GABA in the brain. These are all naturally occurring chemicals that affect mood.
The herb also contains melatonin and endorphins—which may help fight depression and anxiety by increasing feelings of well-being or happiness. It also contains oxytocin, a hormone that causes you to feel hungry when you haven't eaten in a while—thus making you want more cilantro!
Cilantro is a great source of natural antibacterial and antifungal properties. It can help fight infections, colds and flus, as well as acne.
The antioxidants in cilantro work to prevent free radical damage from occurring in the body. This helps to prevent the formation of cancerous tumors or other diseases associated with oxidative stress (such as heart disease).
Help for anemia
Anemia is a condition where there are not enough healthy red blood cells. Cinnamon can help with this, as it contains antioxidants and vitamin C.
Cinnamon also helps to regulate blood sugar levels, which is why it's often recommended to people who have high cholesterol or diabetes.
How much cinnamon should you take? The amount of cinnamon that works for you depends on your age, weight and gender (men are more likely than women to experience side effects from taking supplements). For example: If you're 20 years old and weigh 125 pounds (57 kilograms), then 1 teaspoon (5 grams) of ground cinnamon would be about right; if you're 60 years old but still fit physically—which means no arthritis or high blood pressure—then 2 teaspoons might be better; if your doctor recommends higher doses due to anemia caused by chemotherapy treatment sessions then go ahead!
Beneficial for diabetics
Cilantro is a good source of vitamin K, which helps the body use calcium. Vitamin K is also important for blood clotting and bone health. Cilantro has been shown to aid in the absorption of iron from food sources, which helps red blood cells carry oxygen around your body.
Cilantro can be used as a garnish or added to recipes that call for it, but it doesn't offer much nutritional value by itself.
Cooking with cilantro tips
Add cilantro to a smoothie for a burst of flavor.
Add it to a salad for an extra burst of flavor.
Add it to soup for an even more intense flavor.
Add it to stir fry or other Asian dishes that call for fresh herbs and spices, which can be hard to find in many parts of the country. Try adding some chopped up cilantro at the end of your cooking process; this will ensure that each bite has plenty of freshness! If you want something crunchy but not too spicy—try adding chopped up pieces before serving as garnish on top of tacos or enchiladas (you know how much I love my tacos)!
Cilantro is easy to find at the grocery store, and offers these health benefits.
Once you've found cilantro, it's time to store it. Cilantro should be kept in a cool, dry place with good ventilation. You can store it in an airtight container or bag or wrap it in paper towels and put them in plastic bags.
Cilantro is also easy to use! Just chop up some leaves and add them to your salads or soups; mix chopped cilantro into scrambled eggs; sprinkle on tacos; add juice from the stems (called “coriander”) for added flavor when making drinks like sangria; add chopped leaves as garnish for burritos or tacos...the possibilities are endless!
Cilantro is a versatile ingredient that can be used in many different dishes. It has both antioxidant and antibacterial properties, which help fight inflammation and promote health overall. It also has been shown to help people with anemia, diabetics, or even depression. Cilantro is easy to find at the grocery store, so if you want to add some freshness into your cooking today then go ahead!
