Celery has been known as a medicinal herb used to treat a variety of health complaints. This super food also contains important concentrations of plant hormones and very special essential oils that are very calming and help to regulate the nervous system, and which give celery its characteristic smell.

About – In North America, commercial production of celery is dominated by a variety called Pascal celery. The stalks grow in tight, straight, parallel bunches, and they are typically sold fresh without roots and just a little green leaf remaining.

Nutrition – The minerals and vitamins and nutrients in celery are in perfect harmony with each other. It is a good source of vitamin A, riboflavin, vitamin B6, C and K, pantothenic acid, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, folate, potassium and manganese. The potassium and sodium in celery acts as a diuretic and are powerful body fluid regulators that help rid the body of excess fluid. Celery is low in fats and is a very good source of dietary fiber. Eating celery can help curb cravings for sweet and helps with weight loss. Celery has disease-fighting phytochemicals, which fight against several types of cancer, cardiac disease, high blood pressure and also diabetes. Celery is known to contain at least eight families of anti-cancer compounds. Celery increases bile acid secretion which helps to remove cholesterol from the body. The polyacetylene in celery is an amazing relief for all inflammation including rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, asthma and bronchitis. A compound called phtalides helps relax the muscles around the arteries, dilating the vessels and allowing blood to flow smoothly. Celery helps alleviate insomnia with its high magnesium levels that promote a soothing and restful sleep

Celery is rich in natural sodium, which is soluble, organic and is essential for the body and is very different to table salt, which is composed of insoluble inorganic compounds that can lead to a multitude of health problems, including hardening of the arteries and varicose veins. If salt, including sea salt is white, then it has been processed and all minerals and nutrients have been destroyed. Organic salt allows the body to use the other nutrients that are taken into the body. Every cell in our body is constantly bathed in a salt solution, and if the salt level is not in balance, dehydration occurs. Therefore celery juice is a perfect rehydration drink for athletes.
Celery is considered a cleansing tonic and is an amazing eliminator of toxins from the body. It aids in the breaking down and elimination of urinary and gall bladder stones and can help those who have suffered from stones from getting them again. A number of studies also claim that the celery is very beneficial to the sexual system.
