Even though most people didn’t like to eat celery when they were younger, there are a couple of important health benefits that they should consider nowadays.


Thanks to a study published by The Journal of Drug Discovery and Therapeutics, it is known that the celery can be used for many medical purposes due to the bioactive compounds in it. Some of the benefits are the following:

  1. Reduce blood pressure

One of the most important chemical components of the celery, also known as apium graveolens L. is the phthalide, which helps in reducing blood pressure. Apart from that, the cholesterol levels are also stabilized.

  1. It is a natural remedy for many illnesses

Due to all the vitamins and minerals it has, it has been used to treat illnesses such as bronchitis, liver and spleen disease and arthritic pain. Since it is cheaper than common remedies, people have been opting for using celery as their natural and holistic remedy.

  1. Soothing effect

An essential oil obtained from the plant is often used to calm the central nervous system. Ingesting that oil has an antispasmodic, sedative, and anticonvulsant effect on people’s bodies.

  1. Improves digestion

Since celery is composed of a lot of fiber and water, it helps people who suffer from constipation or any other digestive issue. Its root, ripe seed, and herb are diuretic, carminative, and aperient, as well.

  1. Helps prevent cancer

Several components of the seeds of the celery are anticarcinogenic, which means that they counteract the effects of a carcinogen or inhibits the development of some types of cancer.

While it has many benefits pregnant women should not eat celery as its compounds stimulate the uterus, which might be abortive in some cases.

Apart from that, people should be careful about celery because it if is infected with the fungus Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, the skin contact can cause dermatitis, especially in Caucasians.
