Default celery may lower blood pressure


From personal experience i found out that celery lowers blood pressure. I went to the doctor and my blood pressure was 130 something over 85 and i bought some celery and i typed the benefits of celery and one of the benefits was that it lowers blood pressure because celery has a compound that does something to the blood vessels. 3 or 4 weeks later after eating 2 stalks of celery almost every day my blood pressure dropped to 120 over 78! The only reason now that my blood pressure goes up is because sometimes i get adrenaline and that rises my blood pressure because adrenaline is a stress hormone but laughter i heard reduces adrenaline and cortisol.

Thanks for this info. I really should eat more celery. I heard that celery seed does it too and that you can take in capsules. But look into it first. Seems I read that a long time ago and don't remember where.

Thumbs up Improve Health & Lower Blood Pressure with Celery

Lower blood pressure and improve health naturally with celery

by Fleur Hupston

(NaturalNews) Celery contains a high level of calcium, magnesium, potassium and active compounds called phthalides, which have been found to lower blood pressure and promote a healthy circulatory system. Celery is best eaten raw and the juice is especially useful for overall good health. Celery leaves, seeds and roots can all be eaten. The seeds are particularly rich in iron and vitamins and have anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic properties.

According to a recent study published in Cancer Prevention Research, the compound called apigenin found in celery can stop certain breast cancer tumor cells from multiplying and growing.

In Ayurvedic remedies, celery seed is commonly used as a diuretic, since fluid retention aggravates high blood pressure and other problems such as gout, arthritis, pre-menstrual syndrome and congestive heart conditions. It is also said to help in recovering from the common cold, coughs, sinus congestion, respiratory infections, bronchitis, and laryngitis.

Caution: Celery seed may cause minor discomfort in some people, and anyone suffering with a stomach upset or diarrhea after ingesting the seeds should discontinue its use. Pregnant women should not take celery seed without seeing a medical professional because of its strong diuretic properties.

More uses for celery

Celery may help in the treatment of arthritis and rheumatic disorders. In Japan, rheumatic patients are sometimes put on a celery-only diet until their condition improves.

Celery stimulates the thyroid and pituitary glands.

It is said to clear uric acid from painful joints.

Preparing Celery

Eat raw, whole celery to reduce high blood pressure and to act as a tonic for the liver.

Grated, raw celery can be used as a poultice for swollen glands.

Celery juice or an infusion of celery seeds may be drunk to alleviate conditions such as sciatica.

A glass of celery juice taken before a meal is said to act as a natural appetite suppressant for those wanting to lose weight. Chewing celery seeds after a meal helps digestion.

Celery root is said to be an aphrodisiac.

Although best eaten raw for optimum health benefits, celery is also useful and tasty added to soups, stews and a variety of other cooked dishes. Experiment with combinations of celery and/or onions, green peppers, garlic, chili powder, tomatoes, parsley, barley, carrots and coriander for a hearty soup.

Try celery as a cooked, sauteed vegetable. Celery prepared in this way will retain most of the potassium, and it stays crunchy. Celery is high in sodium, making it unnecessary to add salt when this vegetable is part of a dish.

Celery contains a chemical that naturally lowers BP. You have to eat 2 stalks a day.

Could it be that you have white coat syndrome? In that your BP is raised when at the doctor's but normal at home?

Also for hypertension, I've found from several people that taking bromelain supplements decreases your blood pressure naturally.
