Coriander powder health benefits
Now let us take a look at the many health benefits of coriander powder.
Helps Control Cholesterol
Cholesterol levels are a natural cause of worry, especially if the levels of bad (or LDL) cholesterol is high. Sedentary lifestyles, combined with a high intake of unhealthy junk foods and lack of exercise, often cause high LDL cholesterol in people. Coriander seeds contain a substance known as coriandrin, which helps control the process of lipid digestion. This helps bring down cholesterol levels and also promotes a healthy heart.
Many Ayurvedic practitioners recommend coriander powder for cholesterol control as it not only aids in digestion but also absorbs fats. Furthermore, coriander also contains ingredients such as oleic acid, linoleic acid, palmitic acid, ascorbic acid, and stearic acid, that all work together to reduce the cholesterol levels in the blood.
Coriander powder not only reduces the levels of LDL cholesterol, but also prevents many serious heart problems like heart attacks, strokes, and atherosclerosis. At the same time, coriander powder also increases the good HDL cholesterol levels in the blood.
Helps Lower Blood Sugar
People who have high blood sugar levels are at a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Coriander in any form, be it coriander seeds, extract, or coriander powder, all help in lowering the levels of blood sugar. In fact, coriander powder is so effective at reducing blood sugar levels than people who take diabetes medication or who have low blood sugar need to be cautious while taking coriander because the levels can fall too low.
Studies done on animals have shown that coriander seeds can help lower blood sugar levels by boosting enzyme activity to increase the removal of sugar from the blood.
Another animal study done on rats with high blood sugar and obesity found that just a single dose of coriander seed extract helped decrease blood sugar by four mmol/L in just six hours. These observed effects were similar to the effects of glibenclamide, which is a commonly prescribed blood sugar medications. The single dose of coriander seed extract consisted of 20 mg of extract per kg of body weight of the rats.
Helps Boost Immunity & Fight against Cancer
Coriander powder contains many antioxidants. The primary role of antioxidants in the body is to prevent cellular damage caused by free radicals. The antioxidants present in coriander powder have been proven to help fight inflammation in the body and in boosting the immune system.
The antioxidant compounds found in coriander powder include quercetin, terpinene, and tocopherols. According to both animal and test-tube studies, these compounds are known to have potent anticancer, neuroprotective, and immune-boosting properties.
One test-tube study, in particular, found that the antioxidants contained in coriander powder help lower inflammation in the body and also slowed down the growth of prostate, lung, breast, and colon cancer cells.
Good for the Heart
Several test tube and animal studies have shown that coriander powder may help reduce the risk factors for heart disease, such as high levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol and high blood pressure. This is why coriander is said to be highly beneficial for your heart health. The extract of coriander seeds acts as a diuretic, which helps the body flush out excess water and sodium from the body. This helps in lowering your blood pressure.
At the same time, it has been noticed that eating pungent herbs and spices such as coriander helps reduce the intake of sodium, helping boost your heart health. In fact, in populations that tend to consume large amounts of coriander, the rate of heart disease is lower, especially compared to people who follow a predominantly Western diet, which includes more salt and sugar.
