  • 2 of 5

7. Celery seeds increase urine, according to information from the University of Maryland Medical Center.

8. The seeds may also treat arthritis and reduce inflammation, but we are still waiting for the research to verify this.

9. Celery essential oil, extracted from the plant, has been used for nervousness, osteoarthritis, and gouty-arthritis conditions.

10. The seeds and roots help breast milk secretion.

11. Celery is considered a smart carb. It contains no white sugar or chemicals, and has a high ratio of nutrition compared to its carbohydrate level.

12. Celery is an alkaline food. Most people are too acidic and thus suffer from a major body imbalance. One result of this is extreme difficulty in losing weight.

13. Celery combines with just about any food, even fruit to some degree. This helps the digestion and has many powerful health benefits in itself.

Thank you, but will celery bulbs do? In Poland we don't eat celery stalks and they are rarely available in shops and when they are, they must have been sprinkled with chemicals to remain fresh during the transport from Italy or Spain. (The stalks of the variety we eat in Poland cannot be eaten raw.)

Sorry, but unless this is truly organic celery, then I'll pass. It's one food that is nearly 80% fluids, so it takes up all the many toxic pesticides its sprayed with in conventional agriculture, and is one of the highest rated on the Dirty 15.
