Way too infrequent of postings...will strive to do better
this past weekend I bought some cilantro (coriander) and have starting incorporating it into my daily cooking. researching it I came across this information from wikipedia: Coriander has been documented as a traditional treatment for diabetes. A study on mice found that coriander extract had both insulin-releasing and insulin-like activity. Coriander seeds were found in a study on rats to have a significant hypolipidemic effect, resulting in lowering of levels of total cholesterol and triglycerides, and increasing levels of high-density lipoprotein. This effect appeared to be caused by increasing synthesis of bile by the liver and increasing the breakdown of cholesterol into other compounds.[1 so not only is it adding new flavors to my food, it is actually very healthy for me. maybe this is part of why my eyes are straining, my sugar is under even better control and my eye prescription has changed.
