A Healthy Herb
There are so many healthy properties in herbs that they don't just improve the look and taste of your food but can also increase your vitamin intake and aid digestion. The flavour and aroma from herbs is from the plant's essential oils. Our chefs go out of their way to buy only the freshest of herbs. At Adobo, fresh Coriander (Cilantro) is the herb of choice in our kitchen. We use everything from the leaves to the roots in our Mexican recipes. Here are some of the benefits of Coriander:
Medicinal findings have shown that Coriander aids digestion and is an effective treatment for urinary tract infections.
Lowers Blood Sugars
Recent research has shown that Coriander helps stimulate the secretion of insulin and also lowers blood sugar.
Containing an antibacterial compound, Coriander has been found to provide a natural means of fighting sickness causing bacteria.
Coriander keeps health problems at bay, by helping lower bad cholesterol and raising good cholesterol.
Coriander is good for treating nausea and intestinal gas and is also a good source of dietary fibre.
Relieves Headaches & Promotes Sleep
