Cilantro is the name for the leaf of the plant Coriander and it is used in Asian, mexican, Indian, Tex Mex, Caribbean, and North African cuisines

Cilantro is a remarkable heavy metal detoxifier as it has been found to remove heavy metals from the body. These metals usually enter the body through consumption of non-organic food, using conventional water supplies, eating fish, using deodorants, smoking, cooking in aluminum vessels or aluminum foil, taking over the counter drugs like antacids, using vaccines or metal fillings in teeth. They cause serious heart problems like cancer, brain deterioration, emotional problems, heart, kidney and lung diseases, and weak bones.

Cilantro has the ability to mobilize mercury from the brain and central nervous system by separating it from the fat tissue and transferring it into the blood and lymph where it gets removed. Can provide relief from mercury poisoning and toxicity. The different chemical compounds in cilantro bind to toxic metals and help with their removal by loosening them from the tissues.

Antibacterial and Antifungal: Cilantro contains an antibacterial compound called dodecenal which can kill salmonella bacteria and prevent salmonella poisoning. Its 
anti-bacterial properties help to improve oral health. The antimicrobial substances present in it help prevent and cure smallpox as well as relieve diarrhea if caused by fungal or microbial infections.
