Cilantro (Coriander Leaves)
According to my high school bio teacher, Mr. Miller, liking or hating cilantro (as some unbelievably do) is a genetic trait
According to my high school bio teacher, Mr. Miller, liking or hating cilantro is a genetic trait. In the alternative health world cilantro is:
known as a chelator, which helps remove metals, such as mercury or aluminum, as well as other toxins from our bloodstream, and hence is important for any of us living and eating and breathing in this modern world.
is rich in chlorophyll, the molecular structure of which is nearly identical to that of our blood. Chlorophyll builds blood and hence it is no surprise that in Asian traditions cilantro is used to cure anemia.
