Celery is a good source of potassium. It has a diuretic effect, can help control blood pressure and has anti-inflammatory effects.

Celery is most nutritious eaten raw, but is still beneficial when cooked.

Celery is extremely low in calories and can be eaten freely. About four stalks a day, raw, or cooked will lower high blood pressure. The greener the celery, the higher the levels of vitamin C, folate and carotenes.
