How Does Coriander Water Help Treat IgA Nephropathy

Posted: by Dr.Zhao      Time: 2015-02-26 07:09

Topics: IgA Nephropathy IgA Nephropathy Diet

Details: My husband is diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy, and we heard coriander water is good for IgA Nephropathy patients. Is this true?

Expert Answer

Coriander can be used as both condiment or herbal medicine, because of its rich nutritions. In addition to various vitamins, coriander is also abundant in various minerals such as calcium, iron, phosphorus, and so on. Here, we would like to emphasize the content of vitamin C in coriander is much higher than that in cucumber, tomato, and other vegetables.

Just because of these nutrients, IgA Nephropathy patients can get the following benefits through drinking coriander water.

* Improving immune ability: Vitamin C is one common antioxidant that can protect functioning cells in the body from damage and boost patients' ability against infections, cold and fever. This is one great benefit for these patients, because they are at high risk of these problems.

* Prompting the excretion of waste products and toxins: It is reported that coriander can stimulate sweat gland to secrete sweating that can take away more waste chemicals and extra fluid, so as to reduce swelling and high blood pressure.

* Increasing patients' appetite: Drinking correct amount of coriander water can make patients eat more foods.

However, if patients have eye disease, weakness, stomach ulcer, and some other problems, they should stay away from coriander water.
