Abstract: Coriander is an annual herb of Coriandrum sativum (familyApiaceae). A glabrous, aromatic, herbaceous, annual 30-90 cm in height, It’s major constituents are the essential oil (~1%), in which major component is linalool (60-70%). It also contains borneol, citronellol, limonene, phenolic acid, flavonoids etc. Traditionally, it is being used for relief of anxiety, insomnia, digestive aid, inflammatory bowel diseases and post coital antifertility activity. Ground Coriander is apt to loose it’s flavour and aroma quickly and should be stored in a opaque airtight container It has various pharmacological studies such as acute diuretic activity, anthelmintic activities, antioxidants, antibacterial activities, anxiolytic effect, antimutagenic activities, synergistic effect with oil of dil and eucalyptus. The present review explores the different directions of the Coriandrum sativum plant and compiled it’s vast, pharmacognostic, phytochemical and pharmacological applications to comprehend and prepare the subject of it’s importance as a medicinal plant is growing up substantially with increasing and stronger reports in supports of it’s various therapeutic uses. Keywords: Coriandrum sativum, anthelmintic activity, antioxidants, antibacterial activities, anxiolytic effect, antimutagenic activity, post coital antifertility activity, antimutagenic. 9 AJPER July-September 2012, Vol 1, Issue 1 (9 -21)

Coriander grows wild over a wide area of the Near East and southern Europe. About half a litre of coriander mericarps were recovered from the tomb of Tutankhamun. or to its leaves (used as a herb). globular and ribbed.

The name 'coriander' in a culinary context may refer to either the seeds of the plant (used as a spice).3.2 John Chadwick notes the Mycenaean Greek form of the word." Coriander seems to have been cultivated in Greece since at least the second millennium BC.. white or pinkish purple in compound terminal umbels. fruits yellowish brown.5The Bible mentions coriander in Exodus 16:31: "And the house of Israel began to call its name Manna: and it was white like coriander seed.7 PHARMACOGNOSTIC STUDIES Epicarp composed of polygonal cells with prismatic calcium oxalate crystals. has a pattern curiously similar to the name of Minos daughter Ariadne.Goswami et.

Outer five or six rows of schelerenchyma cells run longitudnally. and it is plain how this might be corrupted later to koriannon or koriandron.6This appears to be confirmed by archaeological evidence from the same period: the large quantities of the species retrieved from an Early Bronze Age layer at Sitagroi in Macedonia could point to cultivation of the species at that time. leaves decompound.1 The name coriander derives from French coriandre through Latin coriandrum. which forced Zohary and Hopf to admit that "it is hard to define exactly where this plant is wild and where it only recently established itself."4 Fifteen desiccated mericarps were found in the Pre-Pottery Neolithic B level of the Nahal Hemel Cave in Israel.

The total phenolic content was quantified with the Folin–Ciocalteau reagent. The mechanism of action of the plant extract appears to be similar to that of furosemide. furosemide was more potent as a diuretic and saluretic.

Umbelliferae (Chinese parsley) on lead deposition was investigated in male ICR mice given lead (1000 ppm) as lead acetate trihydrate in drinking water for 32 days. There was no significant change in the weight and length of the foetuses delivered by rats treated with the extract and no abnormalities were seen in the organs of the offsprings. The spice showed significant hypoglycemic action. There was an increase in the concentration of hepatic glycogen as was evident from the increased activity of glycogen synthase.
