The cilantro herb (Coriandrum sativum) we are used to seeing on grocery store shelves is commonly referred to as ‘Chinese parsley’, and is actually the leaves and stems of the coriander plant. The pungent tasting leaves are widely used in Mexican, Caribbean, and Asian cooking. Coriander seeds are small and round and have a citrusy, nutty flavor when crushed, and are a popular spice, especially in Indian, Asian, and Mediterranean cuisine.
The most notable property of cilantro is its ability to help detoxify the body by binding with heavy metals such as mercury, lead, and aluminum, and aiding in their elimination. There are many avenues of exposure to potentially dangerous metals in our environment, in our jobs, in medicines we take, and in the foods we eat.
BioPure Organic Cilantro Tincture is a liquid extract of the active ingredients of the herb, made by soaking it in an organic corn alcohol at a 1 to 4 herb-to-menstrum ratio. Tinctures maintain their potency and have a longer shelf life than dried herbs.
