Celery Lowers Blood Pressure

Eating celery regularly can control high blood pressure without the use of drugs according to China's Hunan Hemotological Research Center.

Celery contains a naturally occurring chemical called "apigenin" which has been shown to dilate the blood vessels and contribute to preventing high blood pressure. Celery also contains very small amounts of a chemical in called 3- n-butylphtalide (3nb) which lowers blood pressure by relaxing the smooth muscles that line the blood vessels.

3nb also lowers the level of stress hormones called catacholamines.
