More on the Benefits of Celery

Celery is an anti inflammatory:  Eating celery can aid in reducing inflammation in conditions such as arthritis and asthma.

Anti Anxiety: The minerals in celery, such as magnesium and calcium, and the essential oil in it, soothe the nervous system.

Creates an Alkaline Balance: Which is necessary for good health as disease lives in acidic environments.

Aids in Digestion: Celery has a high water content, this combined with the insoluble fiber that celery has, makes it a great tool for easy passage of stool.

Contains “good” salts: The salt in celery is organic, natural and essential for your health.

Good for Vision: One large stalk of celery can deliver up to 10 percent of your daily need for Vitamin A, a group of nutrients that protects the eyes and prevents age-related degeneration of vision.

Reduces “bad” cholesterol: Celery contains butylphthalide. It is what gives celery its flavor and scent. The pthalides stimulate the secretion of bile juices, which works to reduce cholesterol levels.

Lowers blood pressure: An active compound called phthalides in celery has been proven to boost circulatory health. Raw, whole celery reduces high blood pressure.

Boosts your sex life: There are two pheromones in celery–androstenone and androstenol– both of which boost your arousal levels. They are released when you chew on a celery stalk.

Cancer Fighter: Celery contains a flavonoid, called luteolin, which inhibits the growth of cancer cells, especially in the pancreas and likely breast cancer.

Bladder Infections:  Celery seeds help in the elimination of uric acid because it is commonly used for its diuretic properties. This means it is good for people with bladder disorders, kidney problems, cystitis, and other similar conditions. Celery seeds can also assist in preventing urinary tract infections in women.

Immune System Booster: Celery is rich in vitamin C. Vit C boosts the strength of the immune system.
