[The Epoch Times, July 24, 2019] (The Epoch Times reporter Zhang Ni compiled) A recent study published in the medical journal FASEB found that Chinese favorite coriander (also known as 芫荽) has anticonvulsant and anti-caries effects. Its chemical composition effectively delays the onset of epilepsy and other diseases.
Geoff Abbott, Ph.D., physicist at the University of California-Irvine School of Medicine, said: “We found that herbal cilantro , which is traditionally used for anti- caries , activates potassium channels in the brain, thereby reducing epilepsy. The attack.”
“Specifically, we found that dodecenal, a component of coriander, binds to specific locations in the potassium channel to dilate it, reducing cell excitability.”
Abbott said the study helped develop safer and more effective anticonvulsants.
The history of human edible herbs found in the literature can be traced back to as long as human history. DNA evidence shows that Homo Neanderthalensis began using herbs 48,000 years ago; archaeological evidence shows that ancient humans 800,000 years ago also used herbs.
Modern people are more widely used in various types of herbs, some as seasonings, and the coriander is a kind of seasoning that the British also like.
Human consumption of parsley has been at least 8,000 years old, and it is believed that the plant originally cultivated by the ancient Egyptians was first discovered in the tomb of the Tutankhamen of the Egyptian pharaoh.
“In addition to anti-caries, coriander has anti-cancer , anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial effects, beneficial to the heart, stomach, and analgesic effect.” Abbott said, “and most importantly – it tastes great!
