The ancient Indian medicine practitioner believed that corriander was an effective treatment for eye diseases, arthritis and kidney stones. Modern scientific research has proven this assumption wrong. Corriander has been studied and reported to have positive results but these benefits were very limited and not enough to actually reduce or reverse the disease. Corriander was found to have no effect on leukemia and lymphoma. It did have significant benefits for acne, gallbladder, warts, digestive disorders, oral disorders, urinary tract infections and pancreatic disorders. It is even believed that corriander can reverse certain types of cancer.
Scientific studies have proven that corriander contains a substance called berberine which promotes an immune system response. This substance activates white blood cells that help fight off inflammation. Berberine is believed to increase the white blood cell count, which can increase resistance to infection and trauma. The seeds contain a substance called heparin that helps reduce blood platelet adhesion leading to blood clots, which is also helpful for the treatment of thrombosis and heart attack.
