Coriander (Cilantro) is considered both an herb & a spice since both its leaves and its seeds are used as a condiment. Some of the acids present in coriander, including ascorbic acid are very effective in reducing the cholesterol level in the blood while reducing the cholesterol deposition along the inner walls of the arteries & veins. Other benefits include anemia, swellings & digestion. #dherbs #healthtips

Those same compounds were also found in coriander, the spice made from seeds of the cilantro plant.
