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 elimination5,6. 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. Some doctors prescribe cilantro to remove mercury absorbed by the body following dental work. Cilantro appears to be so efficient at mobilizing mercury in our bodies that some researchers believe it is advisable to pair the use of cilantro with that of Chlorella (also available from BioPure Healing Products, LLC) to further bind with the mobilized metals and help to flush them out of the body, preventing re-toxification in other tissues7.
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.

It is one of few modern foods that are mentioned in the Old Testament and is mentioned in the Medical Papyrus of Thebes written in 1552 B. C. No one is quite sure where cilantro originated, but the ancient Israelites were familiar with it, it has been found in ancient Egyptian tombs and it was even mentioned in Arabian Nights a book over 1000 years old. The Chinese have used cilantro for centuries, believing it to be an aphrodisiac.
