Did you know that Cilatro is considered one of the world’s most powerful “superherbs”. The herb is naturally full of vitamins rich to the blood and extracts (theessential oil) can act as a natural preservative to prepackaged foods, as seen in an amazing research paper from the University of California, Berkeley. The Journal of Agricultural Food Chemistry published a paper in 2004* indicating the inhibition of many different varieties of bacterial infections using cilantro extracts. A major constituent of cilantro, referred to in the study as “dodecanal,” was found to be twice as effective at killing Salmonellacompared to a common antibiotic drug known as gentamicin. The study’s lead author, Isao Kubo, as well as his colleagues, were shocked to discover how effective cilantro can be at keeping certain health conditions at bay.
This same effect is what makes cilantro fabulous for detoxing heavy metals and regulating blood sugars. It does this by aiding the body in its natural elimination by binding to and eliminating them from both the digestive tract and any other tissues where they may have accumulated. This process is known as “chelation” (key-lay-shun).
