Coriander identified as a powerful herb for superior heart health


Researchers at Hamdard Institute of Medical Sciences and Research (HIMSR) and Jamia Millia Islamia University in India have found that coriander (Coriandrum sativum) supports heart health. In their study, they found that the herb protects against heart failure.

  • The research team aimed to assess the therapeutic and prophylactic effects of coriander extract on heart failure.
  • They administered isoproterenol in rats to induce heart failure.
  • After two weeks, the rats developed severe impairment in left ventricular functions, reduced baroreflex sensitivity, and significant alteration in hemodynamic parameters and lipid profile.
  • The rats with heart failure displayed increased lipid peroxidation and increased expression of endothelin receptors.
  • With the treatment of coriander extract, the left ventricular functions, hemodynamic parameters, and baroreflex sensitivity significantly improved.
  • The treatment also inhibited lipid peroxidation, improved lipid profile, and downregulated the expression of endothelin receptors.
  • The results of the study indicate that coriander extract offers great protection from heart failure.
  • Coriander’s protective effects may be attributed to its ability to improve left ventricular functions and baroreflex sensitivity, reduce lipid peroxidation, and regulate the expression of endothelin receptors.
  • The findings of the study were published in the Journal of Dietary Supplements.
