thank you for asking
coriandar juice is safe other wise except following adverse effects. including allergic reactions and increased sensitivity to the sun. Increased sensitivity to the sun might put you at greater risk for sunburns and skin cancer. Avoid sunlight. Wear sunblock and protective clothing outside, especially if you are light-skinned.

There is one report of severe diarrhea, stomach pain, darkened skin, depression, lapse of menstruation, and dehydration in a woman who took 200 mL of a 10% coriander extract for 7 days.
Onion is safe when taken in amounts commonly found in food. It might be safe for most people when taken in larger amounts, up to a maximum of 35 mg of the onion ingredient “diphenylamine” per day.
Not enough is known about the use of onion during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid using onion in amounts larger than usual food amounts.
Take care and visit our health center for further guidance
