Coriander

Coriandrum sativum
The name "Coriander" derives from the Greek work "Koris = cimex". The fresh plant, infact, has a rather strong odour that reminds one of green bugs. For its aromatic properties, both the leaves and the seeds can be used, while the fruits are used in the pharmaceutical industry to flavour medicines and in the homeopathic industry to flavour laxatives. Thanks to its rather strong odour, chewing the fruit, it is possible to neutralize the smell of garlic. Coriander also has different medicinal properties. Thanks to its components, that of Vitamin C, it acts as an antiseptic, antispasmodic, stimulant, digestive and relaxant. The juice extract from the green parts of the plant have an intoxicant effect similar to that provoced by drinking to much alcohol.
