Cilantro, also known as Chinese parsley, is an all-powerful herb that contains mineral salts that help to flush heavy metals from the body and fight viruses. It is also considered one of the oldest herbs in the world, having been in use for thousands of years. Why should you add this wonderful plant to your menu and why prefer cilantro powder?
Cilantro as a spice and herb
Cilantro is one of the oldest herbs, with its use in folk medicine and cooking dating back nearly 5000 years. It is thought to have originated in Greece, while it was brought to Western Europe and the British Isles by Roman warriors, who were used to using the plant for both medicinal and culinary purposes. Today, cilantro has spread throughout the world. It is widely used in Asian dishes, forming a unique blend of flavours with lemon, garlic and chilli. Both the leaves and seeds are used in cooking, but the green leaves or freeze-dried coriander powder are the most effective for medicinal purpose.
But what are the benefits of cilantro?
Cilantro is considered to be a phenomenal flavouring and medicinal herb, full of vitamins A, C and K, as well as minerals such as iron, calcium and magnesium, thanks to its great taste and powerful healing properties. In addition, this powerful herb contains more antioxidants than most fruits and vegetables. According to the Medical Medium, cilantro is able to effectively rid the body of heavy metals by moving mercury from the brain and central nervous system into the blood and lymphatic system, from where spirulina helps to safely remove the heavy metal from the body. Indeed, cilantro and spirulina form a powerful combination that provides excellent relief for sufferers of both mercury poisoning and various toxins.
Cilantro as an antibacterial superfood
Cilantro harbours an antibacterial compound called dodecena, which is able to destroy salmonella bacteria and prevent the development of salmonellosis. The latter has also been confirmed by research. Cilantro is also known to support the stomach, spleen, adrenal glands, thyroid, pancreas, bladder and lungs. It is also extremely useful for reducing bad cholesterol (LDL) and increasing good cholesterol (HDL).
Cilantro is also helpful for the following conditions:
- Alzheimer’s disease tõbi;
- Parkinson’s disease;
- viral and bacterial infections;
- obsessive-compulsive disorder;
- Tourette’s syndrome;
- Bell’s palsy or facial paralysis.
In addition, cilantro is an effective treatment for a number of autoimmune diseases such as fibromyalgia, Guillain-Barre syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, multiple sclerosis and chronic fatigue syndrome.
But why prefer freeze-dried cilantro powder?
Freeze-dried cilantro powder is as valuable as fresh herb, but it is much easier and more convenient to consume. During the freeze-drying process, fresh cilantro is dried at a very low temperature and then ground into a powder. However, the nutritional value and healing properties are well preserved in the powder. On the other hand, the taste of freeze-dried cilantro is slightly milder than that of the fresh herb, making it ideal for use when fresh cilantro is not so appealing. As freeze-dried powders have a very long shelf life, it can be kept in the cupboard at all times and used all year round, even when fresh herbs are not available. In addition, the cilantro powder sold in Centralsun is certified organic, which means that it is a 100% pure raw ingredient, free of pesticides and other chemicals. However, when it comes to cilantro bought in shops, you can never be sure of the origin of it. This is why high-quality freeze-dried powder is a good alternative.
How to use cilantro powder?
Nutrient-rich cilantro powder is perfect for flavouring foods, as well as a delicious addition to sauces and salads. Cilantro powder is particularly good in Asian dishes and in pesto or guacamole. It is also an ideal addition to various seasoning salts. For example, try this herb salt recipe with freeze-dried coriander powder:
