High blood pressure is a problem for many people; in fact, in America, around 76.4 million adults suffer from high blood pressure, the American Heart Association notes. High blood pressure can greatly increase your risk for a life-threatening stroke or heart attack.

Eat celery for high blood pressure

Celery contains a phytochemical called phthalides. As an extract, it’s called NBP. NBP relaxes the artery walls tissues and as a result, it increases blood flow and reduces blood pressure.

Eating the whole plant is better. Celery stalk salt content is low, and you also get fiber, magnesium, and potassium to help regulate your blood pressure, as well.

According to Dr. Kenneth Shafer from the department of cardiovascular medicine at Cleveland Clinic – “To get the benefit, you should eat roughly four stalks – one cup, chopped – of celery daily.”

Celery seed extract for high blood pressure

Celery seed extract contains an important compound known as 3-n-butylphthalide, or 3nB for short, that is also responsible for the characteristic flavor and odor of celery.

3nB was discovered as the active component of celery in response to investigations by researchers seeking to explain some of the medicinal effects of celery, including the lowering of blood pressure and the relief of arthritis.

3nB first drew significant scientific attention when researchers at the University of Chicago Medical Center identified it as the factor in celery responsible for the blood pressure lowering effect of celery.

The research was prompted by one of the researcher’s fathers, who after eating a quarter-pound of celery every day for one week observed his blood pressure dropped from 158 over 96 to a normal reading of 118 over 82.

Celery Juice for high blood pressure

Celery juice contains the compound 3-n-butylphtalide, or phthalide, which contributes to the vegetable’s taste and aroma. As a chemical affecting the body, phthalide helps relax the smooth muscles in the walls of the blood vessels, according to High Blood Pressure Info. Blood pressure decreases as the blood vessels dilate and allow blood to flow easier and more freely.

Celery Juice for high blood pressure Recommendations

Using the recommended Oriental dosages to lower mild cases of high blood pressure, one would eat about four ounces of celery (about a cup of chopped celery) daily. You should begin to see results after only a week or two.  Juicing 2 stalks of celery per day would also achieve the same results.

Ingredients:
  • 2 Stalks of Celery
  • 1/2 beet
  • 2 Carrots
  • 1/2 green apple
  • lemon
