Hello December and hello to you, 

Well school has taken over my entire life -like to another extreme now guys it's not even a joke. I swear sometimes I just want to stay in bed all day and watch Netflix ( which can I just say is becoming annoying like why aren't they adding seasons of shows that have been out for a year ..) But obviously I can't so some days I like to have a little morning butt kicker, eye opener kinda drink. 

So ... 

I been drinkin' .... C O R I A N D E R 

okay I know you just lifter your eyes back to the word above in caps... Yes well done it says coriander, now I know I sound like some right looney tune but this stuff is gooooood.

I had seen on like someone nutribullet ingredients list coriander and thought "hold on a sec, is this guy high !?" But it did my own independent research and found the following : 

•  Skin disorders: 

The disinfectant, detoxifying, antiseptic, antifungal and antioxidant properties of coriander are ideal for clearing up skin disorders such as eczema, dryness and fungal infections.

• Eye care: 

Coriander is loaded with antioxidants, vitamin-A, vitamin-C and minerals like phosphorous in its essential oils, which prevents vision disorders,macular degeneration and it reduces strain and stress on the eyes. There is also beta-carotene in the leaves, which prevent a number of other diseases that affect the eye, and can even reverse the effects of vision degradation in aging patients.
