HEALTH BENEFITS OF CELERY
Celery
was originally used only for medicinal purposes, mainly as a diuretic and to reduce blood pressure.  It wasn’t until 1623 in France that its use as food was first recorded.

Celery contains phthalides, which can help reduce high blood pressure.  They do this by relaxing the muscles around arteries, which dilates the arteries and allows blood to flow more efficiently. Phthalides also reduce the level of stress hormones, which cause blood vessels to relax. Celery is a good source of potassium, calcium, and magnesium, all of which help reduce blood pressure by stimulating urine production and eliminating excess fluid from the body.
