Celery is more than just a low calorie snack you eat when dieting, it can also help you lower blood pressure.
Celery contains apigenin, a substance know to help lower high blood pressure. One studies found a reduced blood pressure in 14 out of 16 individuals that were given celery.
Here are some options to take advantage of the benefits of celery:
- Eat 4 celery stalks each day.
- Consume 8 teaspoons of celery juice 3 times a day.
- Take 1000 mg of celery seed extract twice a day.
- Take ½ to 1 teaspoon of celery oil 3 times a day in tincture form.
The above recommendations come from Dr. Mark Houston. Discuss all supplements with your MD
