One of the oldest spices in the world, coriander, has recently taken on a new identity: master-cleansing herb for heavy metal detoxification. In addition to its detoxing capabilities, this potent medicinal plant can also stave off type 2 diabetes and even reverse damage to your DNA.
The Medicinal Powerhouse With a Long History
Coriander’s history can be traced back to 5,000 B.C. Hippocrates, the famous Greek healer known as the “father of medicine” whose contributions are commemorated in the name of the Hippocratic oath, is said to have recommended coriander and regularly used it himself.

Arthritis and rheumatism

How Coriander Combats a Disease Affecting Millions
Coriander can also alleviate problems caused by one of the most pressing health concerns of the modern age: type 2 diabetes. Coriander oil stimulates the endocrine glands, thus signaling the pancreas to secrete more insulin. More insulin in the blood means better regulation of sugar absorption and healthier blood sugar levels. Coriander oil has such a remarkable effect on metabolism that some say it creates a “golden gut.” Even those without diabetes can certainly benefit from the digestive support from coriander. It regulates acid production and enzyme secretion in the stomach, as well as killing off candida albicans (a variety of yeast found in that gut) and other opportunistic invaders.
Expert Advice on Coriander, from Now and Then
If you’re interested in using coriander to cleanse your body and support overall well-being, experts advise insisting on a high-quality product. Pure-pressed, organic coriander oil should be completely free of additives. Experts also recommend choosing oil that comes in a light-protective, air-sealed bottle. Then, to adapt a saying of that early coriander fan Hippocrates, “Let thy oil be thy medicine, thy medicine be thy oil.”
