As with many plants, the ancient wisdom of using celery seeds to restore health is being validated by modern science
Worried about your blood pressure rising? Got gout? Plagued by arthritis? Wondering if a stressful job might give you an ulcer? Celery seed—the fruit of the common, everyday vegetable—can come to the rescue.
While most of us know celery as a crunchy snack often slathered with peanut or other nut butter—or as an ingredient that adds flavor to soups, stews, sauces, and other dishes—that’s only part of its history. Archaeologists have unearthed medical texts that describe celery seeds as a pain reliever in ancient Rome. And for thousands of years, Eastern medicine has used the seeds to treat many ailments, including colds, flu, digestive troubles, diseases of the liver and spleen, water retention, and different types of arthritis, including gout.
Now, the seeds’ healing powers are gaining recognition in the Western world. And celery seed extracts in supplements offer a concentrated and convenient way to benefit.
