It then creates a sweet taste as it’s digested. Coriander is fine for all three Ayurvedic body types to use and it does not provoke Pitta, unlike many other spices. In ayurveda it is especially indicated in treating Pitta aggravation.

As a beneficial source of dietary fiber, coriander facilitates bowel movements. This potent herb also protects against urinary tract infections.
