Coriander

How does Coriander work?

Coriander may lower blood sugar and help kill some parasites, but there currently isn't enough information to know how coriander might work for medicinal uses.

Are there safety concerns?

Coriander is possibly safe for most people when taken by mouth in medicinal amounts. Coriander can cause some side effects, including allergic reactions and increased sensitivity to the sun. Increased sensitivity to the sun might put you at greater risk for sunburns and skin cancer. Avoid sunlight. Wear sunblock and protective clothing outside, especially if you are light-skinned.

When coriander comes in contact with the skin, it can cause skin irritation and inflammation.

Do not use coriander if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • You are allergic to other plants in the carrot family.
