Coriander is a popular herb used in the cuisines of Thailand, Vietnam, India and Mexico. The citrus-flavoured leaves and roots add a pungent taste to many dishes.
- Coriander is a good source of vitamins A (important for growth and development and the maintenance of your immune system), C (needed for the growth and repair of tissues in the body) and K (important for helping your blood to clot). It also contains minerals such as potassium (which helps to regulate blood pressure), manganese (involved in the regulation of brain and nerve function) and magnesium (involved in the regulation of muscle, heart and nerve function and keeping bones strong). It is a good source of dietary fibre too.
