Cilantro is packed with essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, thiamin, zinc, folate, calcium, iron, manganese, copper, and potassium. It has also been studied for its effects on lowering cholesterol and controlling blood sugar. (Read more on World's Healthiest Foods.)
If you need to store fresh herbs, trim the stems then place them into a jar with about an inch of water in the bottom. If you need to refrigerate the herbs, place a plastic bag over the herbs/jar and then refrigerate.
