  • Cilantro offers many health-protective benefits. Two separate studies traced cilantro's antimicrobial properties to specific plant compounds and its essential oil. Among a number of compounds that scientists isolated from cilantro, dodecenal shows particularly effective bactericidal activity against Salmonella, a common cause of food borne illness.
