Pain and inflammation
There is a growing body of evidence that coriander may one day be useful as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory drug. A study that investigated the potential anti-inflammatory activities of extracts of coriander seeds on inflammation and pain in mice concluded:
"The aqueous and ethanolic extracts of C.sativum seeds demonstrated significant analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities. However, further evaluation is required for analysis of phytochemical constituents involved in these activities."
A similar study, published in 2015, investigated the analgesic properties of coriander in mice. They also found an analgesic effect associated with coriander extracts.
They noted that naloxone, a drug that blocks the effects of opioids, inhibited this reduction in pain. This, they conclude, could mean that coriander works via the opioid system.
Although there are a number of treatments for fungal infections, such oral candidiasis (thrush), they often cause unpleasant side effects. For this reason, there is interest in developing compounds based on natural ingredients that can fight fungal infections.
A study, published in PLOS One, tested coriander-based essential oil against Candida albicans. The authors conclude that the oil, produced from coriander leaves, does indeed have an antifungal property and recommend further studies.
As antioxidants, dietary carotenoids can decrease the risk of numerous conditions, including several cancers and eye disease.
A study published in Plant Foods for Human Nutrition showed that basil and coriander contained the highest levels of the carotenoids beta-carotene and beta-cryptoxanthin, as well as lutein and zeaxanthin, all known for their antioxidant properties.
Cilantro has been found to suppress lead accumulation in rats, which gives promise for the use of cilantro to combat lead and other heavy metal toxicity. Because of its ability to chelate (bond chemicals together), cilantro is also being studied as a natural water purifier.
The antimicrobial and heavy metal chelation factors of cilantro have led to its recent use in many "detoxification" juices and drinks.
