Cilantro, also called coriander, is a fresh, slightly bitter herb and it is traditionally used in Mediterranean, Northern African and Asian cuisines.
People completely miss when they toss this garnish into the garbage after eating their meal because cilantro lowers cholesterol levels and prevents anaemia.
The acids present in coriander are very effective in reducing cholesterol levels in the blood. They also reduce the level of bad cholesterol (LDL) which can lead to serious cardiovascular issues. More importantly, this herb helps to raise the levels of healthy cholesterol (HDL).
In addition, coriander consists high iron content which helps people who suffer from anemia.
