Health benefits of celery

.
Celery, which has the scientific name Apium graveolens, is a vegetable in the plant family called Apiaceae.
It is an extremely old vegetable, with records showing that celery leaves were part of the remains found in the tomb of pharaoh King Tutankhamun. In ancient Greece, celery leaves were used as garlands for the dead and to make wreaths or crowns that were given to winners of battles. Celery is even mentioned in Homer’s “Iliad” and “The Odyssey,” as horses were said to eat wild celery that grew throughout Troy.
Whether in soups, vegetable trays, topped with peanut butter or added to a dish, most people have consumed celery in one way, shape or form. That’s a good thing because the benefits of celery, not to mention celery seed, begin with it being an excellent source of antioxidants and beneficial enzymes, in addition to vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin K, vitamin C, potassium, folate and vitamin B6.
Most people choose to eat celery stalk, but the leaves and seeds of celery are also edible and beneficial. For example, celery leaves make a great addition to stir-fries and soups, so don’t shy away from leaf celery.
Celery seeds, which can be found either in whole seed form, extract form or ground-up, have impressive health benefits on their own, as they help to lower inflammation and to fight bacterial infections.
Benefits of celery:
- helps lower high cholesterol
- lowers inflammation
- prevents or treat high blood pressure
- helps prevent ulcers
- protects liver health
- benefits for weight loss
- boosts digestion and reduces bloating
- contains anti-microbial properties that fight infections
