Celery seed benefits

Medicinal Properties:

This unassuming vegetable is another phytochemical powerhouse. The apigenin in celery seeds relaxes blood vessels, allowing them to open wider and permit a freer flow of blood. This is one of more than a dozen chemicals in celery seeds that help your cardiovascular system. Some are natural diuretics, gently encouraging your body to excrete excess fluids, which thwarts high blood pressure and congestive heart failure (as well as monthly premenstrual water retention). Other chemicals act like natural calcium channel blockers and cardiac rhythm stabilizers, making them valuable against an irregular heartbeat or the chest pains of angina. Still other phy-tochemicals, including a compound called 3-n-butyl-phthalide, help reduce cholesterol and contribute to good blood sugar balance. Celery seed extracts offer some 25 anti-inflammatory substances, which may aid anyone with arthritis. Additional compounds quell spasms and fight a variety of bacteria (notably in the urinary tract). The phthalides in celery seed oil also have a mild sedative effect. And celery seed juice encourages bile production, which improves digestion.
