10 Healthy Herbs You Should Be Using


Cilantro: Bursting with phytochemicals

Cilantro is a polarizing herb—you either love it or hate it. I’m a fan, but two of my three kids can’t stand it. Research done by Charles J. Wysocki suggests that certain individuals actually have a predisposition to dislike the flavor. If you’re a cilantro supporter, then consider yourself lucky, because the herb is loaded with phytochemicals, including limonene, camphor, and quercetin, which protect against disease and also help fight aging.

If you’re up for the challenge, you may be able to re-train your brain to like the herb through repeated exposure.

Most commonly found in Mexican and Asian cuisines, cilantro is one of the star ingredients in my delicious Cilantro Sour Cream.
